Pippa Joins The Royal Family For The Thames Diamond Jubilee River Pageant

Today the Queen marked her Diamond Jubilee by leading an exciting, vibrant and colourful river pageant along the River Thames.  She led a flotilla of more than 1,000 boats to celebrate the occasion.

Pippa and her mother Carole, father Micheal and brother James travelled in the procession, onboard the paddle steamer “Elizabethan” during the festivities.

Pippa’s Outfit:

We’re here to dissect Pippa’s outfit and look at her fashion choices in detail – so let’s get down to business!

Here’s a look at what Pippa wore for the pageant:

Pippa gets a hug from her father, Micheal Middleton as James sips champagne.  Kate and Pippa’s mother, Carole looked splendid in white as she mingled with passengers further down the boat.

Pippa wore a dark ink blue and white jacket over a dress, along with some wedges in the same colour.  Let’s take a look at the items in more detail:

Pippa’s jacket:

Pippa is wearing a cropped jacket by Orla Kiely, which is made from textured silk with a round neckline and a contrast ecru trim.  The jacket is fully lined and features decorative pockets.

Where to buy:  Coggles and Zalando.

Pippa’s skirt/dress:

We believe that Pippa is wearing the matching Orla Kiely dress from the same range under her jacket.  The material is a perfect match to the jacket, as you can see in photographs from the event.

Where to buy:  It’s also available from Coggles and Zalando.

Pippa’s shoes & bag:

Pippa appears to be wearing accessories by British brand Jaeger.  You’ll laugh when you read the style names!  The shoes are the “Elizabeth” wedge and her bag is the “Kate” clutch.

Shoes:  House of Fraser (£99) | Jaeger120Now £74.25)
Bag:  John Lewis (£120) | House of Fraser (£150)

Jaeger ran a promotion earlier this month, giving a free Kate bag away with purchases over a certain amount of money.  Perhaps Pippa purchased the shoes and got the bag free?

Huge THANK YOUS to Anna, Kate Spotter, Michelle, Chiara & Sandra for the IDs.


  1. Very nice, but a little bit conservative.

  2. Conservative is good when you are a guest of the Queen.
