The Middleton family attend the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace
Kate Middleton‘s family mother Carole, father Michael and siblings Pippa Middleton and James were pictured enjoying the Coronation Festival Concert on Thursday evening.

The Middletons joined members of the royal family in the royal box to watch the concert, which took place in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.



For the special occasion, aunt-to-be Pippa, 29, dazzled in a white summer dress, which she teamed with an envelope clutch bag.

The Waitrose columnist completed her look with her hair in loose waves and natural make-up.

Meanwhile, James Middleton, who was seated next to Pippa in the royal box, looked dapper in a dark blue suit, crisp white shirt and a red tie.

Grandparents-to-be, Carol and Michael Middleton, looked happy and relaxed at the concert, suggesting that Kate’s due date isn’t as near as it was originally thought.


Carole, who was sitting two rows behind the Queen, looked elegant in a cream dress and jacket. Husband Michael, 64, chose a navy suit, a white shirt and a light blue tie.

The Coronation Gala, which marked the 60th anniversary of the royal coronation, included performanced from Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins, English tenor Russell Watson, songstress Katie Melua and pop rock band The Feeling.

The National Youth Orchestra and the English National Ballet also made performances at the evening gala.
