Pippa Middleton and her mother Carole looked ever the stylish duo as they stepped out together for a special beach party at the Goring Hotel.

The setting has a special place in their hearts, as it was the place where Kate Middleton chose to spend her last night as a single woman before marrying Prince William in April.

And Pippa and her mum looked delighted to be returning to the plush hotel in Belgravia, along with Michael.

Pippa, who shot to overnight fame after playing the part of Kate’s maid of honour on the April 29 nuptials, looked glowing in a short patterned dress by French label Maje.

She teamed this up with nude patent heels, similar to the ones her sister was pictured wearing at the weekend at The Epsom Derby.

Carole, 56, also wore a patterned dress which came above the knee, teamed up with nude shoes and tanned legs. Husband Michael kept his style classic and simple with a black suit, white shirt and spotted red tie.

The family enjoyed some drinks in exclusive Harry’s Bar before they went to the hotel for the beach party at the hotel, which houses a brand new bar that boasts tons of sand, three fishing boats and a palm-thatched roof, the Daily Mirror reports.


The tropical themed bar was devised by the owner of Basil’s Bar on the island of Mustique – a favourite holiday haunt of the Royal Family – and was built by Blue Forest, a company which specialises in sustainable luxury eco lodges and tree houses.

Daughter Kate was nowhere to be seen, but that’s possibly because she was too busy moving into her new pad in Kensington Palace with Prince William.

It was recently confirmed that the newlyweds will split their time between their cottage in Anglesey, where William works as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF, and the relatively "small" apartment at the palace, which will be their London base.

The couple are to hire a housekeeper, butler, valet and dresser, with Kate, who is the new Duchess of Cambridge, set to interview the applicants herself.
