Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of pregnant Kate Middleton, was all smiles as she watched tennis star Andy Murray play at Queen”s.
The brunette beauty, 29, attended the match with her mother, Carole Middleton. Ahead of becoming aunty and grandmother to Kate and Prince William”s first child, the two ladies enjoyed quality time together as they watched the sports star storm to victory.
Pippa, who is currently dating stockbroker Nico Jackson, 35, is known for her love of tennis and is often spotted courtside at high-profile matches. As contributing editor for Vanity Fair, she wrote a column entitled Pippa Middleton”s Inside Guide To Wimbledon where she focuses on her experiences and highlights of the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

“Seats were a free-for-all – and I recall almost tripping over myself trying to get as close as possible to my birthday-twin British hero Tim Henman.”
She also recalls her first trip to see a tennis match and her ambition to win. “I first went to Wimbledon when I was eight years old and already a very keen tennis player.
“During this first trip I acted on my childish tennis dreams and bought myself a postcard of the women”s championship trophy, on which I wrote, “I will win this one day,” with my signature below.”
