The 31-year-old was the epitome of elegance in a bespoke Emilia Wickstead high-necked cream coatdress, which featured pocket detailing and a high neck, accessorising with a pair of patent nude stilettos. To complete her look, Pippa chose an eye-catching custom-made straw cocktail hat from Jane Taylor Millinery with organdy and nude feather detail.

"Pippa Middleton is the epitome of elegance and style," read a statement from Jane. "And I could not be more honoured to see her wearing one of my designs so beautifully today at such a significant royal occasion."

Pippa's outfit complemented her sister's perfectly, with the stylish siblings stepping out in similar looks. The Duchess also chose a cream coatdress for the momentous occasion, from one of her favourite labels, Alexander McQueen. Like Pippa, the mother-of-two turned to milliner Jane Taylor to create her dazzling hat which featured lace and floral detailing.

It's not the first time that Pippa has been spotted in a cream coat for a family event – back in 2013 she chose an elegant wool trapeze number by couturier Suzannah Crabb for Prince George's christening, which featured a pink blush trim and oyster silk lining.

Kate's stylish sibling was no doubt was enjoying some quality time with her family at Charlotte's christening – the avid sportswoman has just returned from Kenya, Africa, where she completed the Safaricom marathon, running over 26 miles to rasie money for the conservation charity Tusk Trust, of which Prince William is a patron.
