Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews is just around the corner and while royal watchers are eager to see what the bride will wear, they are also curious as to what her royal sister, Kate Middleton will choose for the big day. With the Duchess of Cambridge wanting to ensure that all eyes are on the bride on her special day, it is likely that Prince William’s wife will opt for a classic, low-key look. No doubt with an enviable wardrobe and the world’s most prestigious designers lining up to dress her, Kate will have plenty of options when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding ensemble.

Back in 2005, the Duchess attended her first wedding as the girlfriend of Prince William. The couple stepped out to celebrate the marriage of their friends Hugh Van Cutsem and Rose Astor. It was a June wedding and Kate looked demure in a stylish monochrome ensemble that consisted of a fitted jacket and matching top, which she paired with a horizontal patterned skirt by Karen Millen. In keeping with her black and white theme, Kate rounded off her look with a black fascinator, pointed flat pumps and a sleek clutch bag.
Prince George’s mom's fondness of high street brands is well documented and she's perfectly happy to attend formal events wearing affordable styles. In 2011, at the wedding of Sam Waley-Cohen and Annabel Ballin, the down-to-earth royal turned heads in another black and white outfit though this time a form-fitting Zara dress with an all-over circle pattern teamed with an eye-catching black headpiece. The same year, the Duchess of Cambridge made a statement in a striking oversized cream Gina Foster hat at the nuptials of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall. The look was completed by her iconic brocade Day Birger et Mikkelsen coat. The mother-of-two often plumps for a neutral palette of cream, black, beige and taupe, especially for weddings, so we may well see her opt for something similar for Pippa's May 20 nuptials.

Kate has a trademark classic style and more often than not, she dresses her slim figure in fitted designs and chooses to wear her glossy tresses in loose waves that cascade elegantly onto her shoulders. She is also a fan of skirt suits and has been spotted in many a colorful design over the years. However, there is a chance that the Duchess will go all-out and dress in a more extravagant ensemble for her little sister’s wedding.

The 35-year-old royal was recently spotted in an ice-blue sequined Jenny Packham number that featured mid-length sheer sleeves and a beaded bodice - a design that would work beautifully for a celebration in the idyllic English countryside. Kate's favorite designers include Erdem and Catherine Walker, while her go-to high-street labels are L.K Bennett and Reiss. Whatever she chooses to wear for her little sister's wedding, one thing is for sure...we simply can’t wait to see it!
