This afternoon, Pippa Middleton joined the A-list crowd for day four of Wimbledon 2018.

The self-confessed tennis fan – who is expecting her first child with husband James Matthews – arrived alongside her brother, James Middleton, for the prestigious tournament.

Dressed for London’s heatwave, the 34-year-old showed her blossoming baby bump in a £680 broderie anglaise dress with frilled cap sleeves by Anna Mason London.

Taking sartorial cues from the Duchess of Sussex, she relied on a £229 pom pom-emblazoned straw hat by milliner Jess Collett and a co-ordinating £62 J Crew clutch as must-have courtside accessories.

For those of you obsessed with her Penelope Chilvers powder blue espadrilles, they can be yours for a surprisingly purse-friendly £95. But if the fledging ‘Pippa Effect’ is anything to go by, they’re sure to prove a sell-out.

To finish the £1, 380 look, she kept shaded from the sun in a pair of covetable Chanel sunnies.

Her mother, Carole Middleton, also sported a similar aesthetic at the tournament yesterday in a kaftan-inspired lace number by Gerard Darel with Kate Middleton-esque wedges.

The writer and former party planner announced her pregnancy earlier this month, as she revealed the exciting news in her regular column for Waitrose Weekend.

Pippa – who is currently in her third trimester – took to the supermarket supplement last weekend to express her desire to continue playing tennis throughout her pregnancy.

“I’ve been a tennis fan since childhood, as player and spectator, and have been keen to continue playing safely throughout pregnancy,” she wrote.

Later in the column, the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister cites Serena Williams, a fellow guest at the royal weddingas someone who: “famously proved that women can play a high level of tennis from two months (when she won the 2017 Australian Open) up to eight months.”

Pippa is reportedly due to welcome her first child in October 2018.
