While the press camped out in front of St Mary's Hospital waiting for Kate Middleton to pop, the royal clan and the rest of the Middleton family distracted themselves with a little musical entertainment at the Coronation Festival Evening Gala last night.
Pippa Middleton, James Middleton and Kate's dad Michael Middleton all joined their royal family-in-law in the royal box for the Buckingham Palace concert festivities. While Kate rests at home in Kensington Palace, her younger sis took the style lead in a white and blue graphic dress by Tabitha Webb and soft waves.
Of course, this is part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's coronation, so there were plenty of royals around, including the queen herself, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Zara Phillips, the queen's newly-pregnant granddaughter, looked glowing in a loose-fitting floral shift, while Princess Eugenie went classic in a simple white dress and wedges. Oh, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, looked fabulous in a feathered number and nude pumps (they look like Kate's go-to L.K. Bennett shoes to us).
So while you wait
on pins ands needles patiently for the royal baby to arrive, check out photos from the Coronation Evening Festival Gala and distract yourself with some royal style.
