Pippa Middleton has got a new admirer. The pretty brunette found a fan in the form of This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield when she attended the Waitrose summer party at London”s Natural History Museum on Wednesday evening.
Sipping champagne and chatting away together, it was clear the unlikely pair were getting on really well — and Phillip quickly updated his Twitter followers about the encounter.
“Met Pippa Middleton tonight, as you do,” he wrote. “Delighted to report, she”s lovely :).”
Waitrose column writer Pippa, 29, attended the event with her brother James Middleton. Inside, she socialized with celebrity chefs Heston Blumenthal and Gizzi Erskine as well as Made in Chelsea reality stars Cheska Hull and Jamie Lang.
Kate Middleton”s younger sister chose an elegant, summery peach dress for the outing, which not only was a sartorial success, it championed a worthy cause. Pippa wore the exclusive Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Summer Blossom Dress deigned by Tabitha Webb, with a portion of the £285 price tag going to charity.
Pippa and James, 27, — who live together in a Chelsea flat owned by their parents, Carole and Michael — attended the party without their respective partners, Nico Jackson and Donna Air.
The quartet have enjoyed a number of evenings out together in recent weeks, and on Tuesday evening joined Princess Eugenie and her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank at the launch of a new Mayfair bar, Mr Fogg”s.
