It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Boomf! Royal aunt-in-waiting Pippa Middleton was just like Us when she got a flat tire in London on Thursday, April 30. Luckily, she got some help from her dashing younger brother James.

The scene-stealing younger sister of (still pregnant!) Duchess Kate was out for a drive in her Range Rover when she had to pull to the side of the road. Clad in a blazer, skinny jeans, and Jemima Vine flats, Pippa appeared slightly stressed as she inspected her car's tires.

She then made a call, and her entrepreneurial sibling (the CEO and founder of a personalized marshmallow company called Boomf) dropped his hard work and rushed over. James, 28, arrived in his Jaguar F Type to help out, and after taking a look himself, he called a rescue service. The two then waited for a tow-truck service.

After the truck arrived, 31-year-old Pippa carried her purse and larger bag by Aspinal of London to her brother's sports car. The two then left together.

Meanwhile, the world awaits the arrival of Pippa and James' future niece or nephew, who is currently eight days overdue. Meanwhile, cameras and fans have lined up outside of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, for the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's second royal baby. Inside the hospital, it's a calmer environment.

"It's all very British — keep calm and all that," an anonymous Lindo Wing patient told Us Weekly on Thursday. "I think if Kate were to walk in, the majority of people there would pretend they didn't notice her. No one wants to add to the hysteria outside. It's business as usual for the doctors, nurses, and midwives working there. They're used to important people coming in. They're all doing a great job of ignoring the fact there's a slightly odd situation going on outside."
