The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cut it fine as they set off from Kensington Palace with just a few hours to spare ahead of Pippa Middleton’s wedding today.
The couple, who were dressed to impress in their wedding outfits, were seen driving through London as they made the 50 mile journey to St Mark’s Church in Berkshire.
Prince William, who looked dapper in a satin waistcoat and red tie, drove his family-of-four in their Range Rover to the society wedding of the decade.
Kate, meanwhile, gave a hint of her outfit and donned a peach fascinator – a colour she often plumps for when dressing for formal events.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa, 33, will say her vows to millionaire groom James Matthews, 41, today at an event dubbed the society wedding of the year.
Society types, royals and Made In Chelsea stars will descend on the quiet village of Englefield on Saturday to watch Pippa Middleton and James Matthews say ‘I do’.
The couple’s nuptials are taking place in the picturesque Berkshire church before a congregation, which includes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Prince Harry and other close family and friends.
Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle will make an appearance alongside her royal beau after landing in London on Tuesday evening.
Well-placed sources say the relationship is extremely serious, and that Meghan’s invitation to Pippa’s wedding is the ultimate endorsement, meaning she could be a potential princess.
The event will see hundreds of royal fans, press and public descend on the quiet village of Englefield, near Reading, which is home to St Mark’s Church, where the ceremony took place.
Kate’s parents and siblings spent the night in their hometown of Bucklebury as they prepare for the society wedding of the year, but the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted driving through London on Friday afternoon.
It is thought that Kate attended the rehearsals for sister Pippa’s wedding at St Mark’s Church before driving her Range Rover back to Kensington Palace this afternoon.
Kate’s children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are acting as page boy and flower girl at the nuptials, so the mother-of-two most likely had plenty to organise back in the city.
Also spotted making last minute preparations for the wedding was Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s girlfriend, who was seen outside a Soho spa after flying into London to join her royal beau at St Mark’s tomorrow.
Casually dressed in leggings, a hoodie, a baseball cap and shades – albeit with the addition of an expensive Mulberry handbag – the Suits star lingered outside the venue as she waited for a driver, likely to whisk her back to Harry’s Kensington Palace apartment.
Details of today’s wedding service, reception and celebrations have been kept under wraps by organisers but there has been speculation that the day is setting Pippa’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, back hundreds of thousands of pounds.
An expensive glass marquee has been hired for the evening event, as have vintage cars and modern prestige vehicles – and posh portable toilets.
Reports suggest it will be a lavish affair, with a nod to the groom’s Scottish connections included in his outfit, entertainment and the food, with haggis on the menu along with Scottish lamb and whisky, while there will also be a piper and a Spitfire flypast.
