Kate Middleton Just Gave Us Major Royal Wedding Flashbacks on Her Sister’s Big Day
Pippa Middleton and big sister Kate have a lot in common when it comes to their nuptials. Not only did both sisters marry their loves in stunning, highly publicized ceremonies, they both took our breath away with timeless wedding gowns too. There were other similarities in their demeanors, as well: As Pippa said “I do” to James Matthews on Saturday, Kate gave us MAJOR flashbacks to her Royal wedding to Prince William on more than one occasion.
First, there was their scene-stealing ensembles: Just as Pippa did in 2011, Kate all but stole the show in an Alexander McQueen creation that set social media on fire with rave reviews and endless compliments. The Duchess of Cambridge looked beyond elegant in the long-sleeved, knee-length blush gown, which she paired with blindingly sparkly Kiki McDonough drop earrings and a fascinator in the same blush hue. She finished the look with some suede nude Gianvito Rossi pumps.
Once everyone was in place, it was time for Mrs. Matthews to finally walk down the aisle, but not before her big sis had a chance to ensure everything was in perfect order. As she fluffed and fixed the bespoke Stephen Jones veil, 35-year-old Kate was clearly adept at her role, which one insider described as “attendant-in-chief,” performing the same duty Pippa did as a Maid of Honor way back when.
The intimate snap sent us right back in time to this shot of Pippa dotingly carrying Kate’s uber-long train, making sure it looked picture perfect.
Another similarity? Both beauties were tasked with taking care of the flower girls and page boys to ensure they were on their best behavior. As Kate went into full mama mode, keeping the kiddos quiet as they entered the church, we couldn’t help but think back to when the bride’s baby sis did the exact same, holding the hands of two little bridesmaids in tow. Talk about déjà vu!
There’s no question about it: The Middleton sisters are two peas in a pod!
