If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Pippa Middleton is paying our own Princess Mary a big compliment. Kate's little sister was snapped courtside at Wimbledon men's finals over the weekend wearing the same Project D printed frock that Mary donned back in May. Dannii Monogue's label was responsible for the Princess-perfect 'Phoebe' dress, and we think this was a wise style-steal on Pippa's part. An elbow-length sleeve and ladylike knee-length skirt makes this a grown-up option, but the pretty pastel bluebird print keeps things youthful. Step inside to see how these two royal style icons made it their own.
The royal box at Wimbledon's finals in England yesterday was full of famous faces. Kate Middleton, in a white look by Joseph, and her sister Pippa sat together in the stands as they watched Roger Federer take on Andy Murray. Both sisters attended matches earlier in the tournament, with Prince William joining Kate on Wednesday and James Middleton by Pippa's side last week. Also on hand were David and Victoria Beckham, who stuck close together during the event. They shared a special moment with Kate when she stopped to greet them before taking her own seat. David and Victoria are in London with their four children just ahead of daughter Harper's first birthday this week.
Prince William and Kate Middleton stepped out of the St. Giles cathedral in Edinburgh today. They were in Scotland for the Thistle Ceremony to install William as a Knight in the Order of the Thistle. The honour is Scotland's highest and comes during the Queen's four-day Diamond Jubilee tour of the country. Kate wore a yellow Emilia Wickstead for the event, which was just her latest public appearance. Kate and William attended Wimbledon on Wednesday to watch Roger Federer's victory over Mikhail Youzhny from the royal box. Just last week Kate's siblings, Pippa and James, sat in the special section, as did their mother, Carole.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were in the stands at Wimbledon yesterday. The royals watched Roger Federer's victory over Mikhail Youzhny — which will move him on to the semifinals — and stayed for the Andy Murray and David Ferrer match afterward. Kate, who is a big tennis fan, sported a knit Alexander McQueen dress that she also wore during her trip to Canada with Prince William last year. She leaned in close to chat with her husband and cheered and clapped during the action.
It's been 15 months since Kate married Prince William, and since then, the pair have been busy travelling the world and focussing on philanthropic efforts close to home.
The stands at the Wimbledon tennis championships in London this week have been filled with famous faces despite the rain. On Wednesday, Brooklyn Decker cheered on her husband, Andy Roddick, as he beat Jamie Baker. During a rain delay, Brooklyn headed indoors to hang out with doubles player Bob Bryan's baby daughter Micaela. The royal box at Wimbledon has also been full with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, watching Roger Federer take on Italy's Fabio Fognini. Yesterday, though, Pippa Middleton had the privilege of sitting in the royal seats with her brother James. Pippa wore a navy Orla Kiely dress and jacket to check out multiple matches on Centre Court. Last year, Pippa brought boyfriend Alex Loudon to the tennis event, but this time it was all about family since Carole Middleton was also on hand.
As tennis players such as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray battled it out on court the past two weeks during the Wimbledon tournament, their girlfriends watched on from the players’ boxes and cheered for their men. In fact we were quite taken with the gorgeous wives and girlfriends in the stands (as is the fascination with WAGs) that we decided to take a closer look at the ladies who support some of the top men in tennis.
Wimbledon has wrapped up for another year, culminating in the victories of Novak Djokovic in the men’s tournament and Petra Kvitova in the women’s. Over the course of the two week sporting event many famous faces made their way to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to watch the world’s top players face off in exciting matches. Among the spectators were Kate Middleton and Prince William, who participated in a crowd wave, and Pippa Middleton, who made two appearances and has made no secret of her love of the sport. Kirsten Dunst, who starred in the 2004 film Wimbledon, showed off some cute style on the first day, as did Dakota Fanning. And glam ladies such as Brooklyn Decker and Bec Hewitt were there to support their husbands Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt respectively. Want to see who else sat courtside? Step inside to see Anne Hathaway, Rupert Grint, some of the players’ stunning girlfriends and more.
While we had a few ideas up our sleeve for hair and makeup looks that we thought Kate Middleton should try, we were pleased as punch upon seeing her looking as pretty as a picture in her white frock with Wills at Wimbledon yesterday. I won't say she deviated too far from her signature style, but in place of her regular blow-dry, her long dark locks were styled in bouncy, voluminous curls, and if possible looked even glossier than usual. While her makeup was a little more understated, she added a pop of glossy petal-pink lipstick, complementing her blushing pink cheeks. Me likey! For a similar look, apply L’Oreal Professional Texture Expert Curl Corset Aqua Mousse ($30) for perfectly sculpted curls with an added extra shine and MAC Cosmetics Tinted Lipglass in Pink Poodle ($35).

The royal style keeps-a-coming from Kate Middleton! Yesterday we saw the Duchess of Cambridge in a chic Alexander McQueen coat for her military duties, but today she's gone a more femme, flirty route in this tiered Temperley LWD for an afternoon at Wimbledon. Kate joined Prince William in the stands, and couldn't keep the grin off her face the whole match through. I guess we'd be smiling too if we looked as good as her! She teamed her pleat-detailed sundress with a streamlined nude clutch and pumps, ensuring that her flirty frock was the centre of attention.
