Yesterday saw the Duchess of Cambridge pay a visit to Pippa Middleton’s house – no doubt to share her marital wisdom with her soon to wed sibling. And as she stepped out of her home in London on Friday it seemed that it was more than just wedding inspiration that Pippa had taken from Kate. Pippa, 33, seemed to have also taken fashion cues her big sister Kate, opting for casual jeans and flats – just as the Duchess had the previous day.
On Thusrday the Duchess of Cambridge was dressed down in black skinny jeans and a jumper as she visited her sisters home, and today Pippa opted for a similar look as she stepped out in the spring sunshine.
The bride-to-be sported a pair of casual skinny blue jeans which she paired with a slouchy wheat colored jumper. Adding a touch of smart to her casual look Pippa completed her ensemble with a tailored blue blazer and a pair of classic pearl earrings – not dissimilar from those favored by her sister.
Making the most of the good weather Pippa added a pair of shades to complete her outfit on Friday. Kate, 35, visited her younger sister’s house on Thursday just hours after their mother Carole paid a visit alongside milliner Stephen Jones.
The 33-year-old socialite is said to be pulling out all the stops to be the star attraction at her wedding – with her policy also making it unlikely for Prince Harry’s other half Meghan Markle to attend the big day. A wedding insider told The Sun: ‘Pippa’s view is that Vogue’s relationship with Spencer is still very new. It wouldn’t be appropriate for her to be there after just a few months of dating. ‘But some people in the circle are pretty shocked because this is her future brother-in-law who’s going to end up attending on his own. It’s certainly raised eyebrows.’
Pippa’s parents Carole and Michael were not at the dinner last week, but they are believed to be fond of their future son-in-law and approve of their daughter’s choice. Rumours have been swirling surrounding Pippa’s big day, as she prepares to tie the knot with James this spring, with the details so far kept under wraps. Her millionaire banker fiancé popped the question last summer with a dazzling diamond ring worth an estimated £200,000.
James reportedly asked Pippa’s father for permission for his daughter’s hand before getting down on one knee. ‘James is a traditionalist and very much wanted to do things properly. That meant getting his future father in law’s consent,’ a friend of the couple told the Daily Mail’s Richard Kay. Now, the big day is just weeks away after the bridal party including Pippa’s sister the Duchess of Cambridge jetted out to Méribel for a skiing hen party. Pippa, 33, was already living in the house, where James has reportedly installed his-and-hers dressing rooms, at the time of their engagement in July last year. Her father, Michael, who is believed to be hosting the wedding reception at his Bucklebury home, said in a statement at the time: ‘Carole and I are absolutely thrilled with the news. They make a wonderful couple and we wish them every happiness together.’
