As Pippa Middleton dazzled at a wedding in Scotland yesterday afternoon, her mother Carole showcased her own style as she enjoyed a day at the races yesterday afternoon.
Prince William's mother-in-law joined friends at the exclusive Veuve Clicquot Owners & Trainers bar at Newbury Races to watch racehorse of the moment Frankel deliver another flawless performance.
Mrs Middleton looked smart in a camel brown V-neck dress, cut above the knee and paired with a black tailored jacket.

Flawless performance: Prince William's mother-in-law proved that her daughters' enviable sense of style runs in the family with a smart ensemble that was perfectly chosen for the occasion
She topped off the ensemble with a brown crocodile skin effect handbag and, in the spirit of the equestrian occasion, a shiny gold racehorse brooch.
It was a rather less fiery outfit than that modelled by her daughter Pippa as she attended a wedding in Scotland yesterday afternoon.
She turned heads in a low-cut raspberry-coloured outfit, the cut of which was almost identical to that worn by her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, as she announced her engagement to Prince William.
The body-skimming dress, which showcased single Pippa’s slim figure, was accessorised with a matching fascinator with net veil and black clutch bag and set off with a pair of black heels.
