Among the congregation was the Duchess' sister Pippa Middleton. "The guests made it feel like a re-run of the royal wedding as they had so many of those people who matter the most to them there," royal photographer Mark Stewart told People. Despite the driving rain, the brunette beauties were every inch the glamorous guests. The Duchess recyled a blue lace Erdem dress she debuted on her tour of Canada. Pippa went for a bolder look, sporting a dazzling butterfly hat and gold sequinned dress. She completed the ensemble with an elegant royal blue coat.After attending their friends' big day, William and Kate escaped to the remote privacy of their Anglesey farmhouse.
