Fabulous in floral! Pippa Middleton looked chic in a blue and white patterned dress for her outing to the Ladies Singles Final, while Kate rewore a bespoke Dolce & Gabbana dress that she first debuted during her royal visit to Canada in 2016
Go all out in florals and frills like Pippa in Anna Mason
We know she’s a fan of a floral and we know she’s also a fan of a frill, so for today’s penultimate day of Wimbledon festivities, Pippa Matthews went all out with both of her favourites in one, donning a dress by London-based designer Anna Mason.
Pictured at in the royal box with sister Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, Pippa stood out in her tiered frock. Cut in an airy poplin fabric, the dress features a delicate cornflower blue floral print. It features a fitted bodice with high neck and frilled sleeves, as well as a tiered A-line skirt, with rows of thick frills.
We think this frock is perfect for summer and love how Pippa has pared back on the accessories and pinned her hair back to let the dress do the talking. If you’ve got an event coming up and fancy getting hold of Pippa’s frock, it’s available to order from the designer’s website, in Pippa’s chosen blue hue, or in a red or multi colourway, click right to buy.

It is also the first public outing of all three ladies side-by-side.
Pippa arrived alongside her sister Kate, who is a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and spent the first part of the day carrying out royal duties.
Meghan was later seen smiling and laughing as she arrived and sat between the two sisters.
Kate, 37, wore a dark green Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she had previously worn during a royal tour in Canada with Prince William in 2016.

Pippa shares a word with her sister Kate. Apart from photos taken at Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews, the pair haven’t been seen publicly together since 2012
Meanwhile Meghan, 37, wore a crisp white button down shirt which she paired with a pleated white skirt with a blue design from Hugo Boss.
Rounding out the royal trio, Pippa, 35, opted for a romantic blue-and-white floral print dress.
The cheerful appearance comes despite rumours of a royal rift between the Cambridges and Sussexes, though it is not known if the rumoured tension is between Meghan and Kate.

Relationship expert Lara Asprey said the event was an opportunity for Pippa to meet Meghan, but also show her relationship to sister Kate is still strong.
‘It is lovely to see Pippa return to Wimbledon with her sister, given how frequently they used to go it is hard to think she hasn’t been with Kate since 2012,’ said Ms Asprey.
‘Pippa is now married, and she has had her first child. Kate and William’s marriage fell a short time before their last appearance together, and there was a long period before they were out in public together.
‘I think between her sister’s wedding and her own Pippa has tried to be her own women, she has done her own thing. Now she’s married there’s more in common.
‘It’s also nice for Meghan to meet Pippa which she hasn’t really had the chance to, they do both lead quite private lives.
‘This is their girls day out, and an opportunity to be a bit less official, and Pippa will bring some girl chat. I don’t think they plan on confronting any difficult topics.’
