Royal wedding: Sisters are wedded to the high street

03 MAY 2011

Following their star turns on Friday, the women of the moment no doubt have unprecedented access to clothes from the most excusive fashion labels in the world, with designers clamouring to dress them.

But Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Middleton have proven they are normal, down-to-earth girls, as they stepped out following the wedding in high-street ensembles.

With both opting for off-the-rack store Zara, Kate paired her £49.99 cornflower blue dress with black, LK Bennett patent wedges and a structured black jacket.


Meanwhile, younger sister Pippa had donned a £69.99 blazer in royal blue from the shop, teamed with fitted white jeans and cream ballet pumps.

This pared-down look was in stark contrast to the extravagant outfits they were wearing on Friday, which totalled £60,000.

Kate's made-to-measure Alexander McQueen gown cost £40,000, whilst Pippa's capped-sleeved, button-back dress set the Middleton family back £20,000.

But this style is not a one-off for Kate, who is known to champion the high-street, having worn a Whistles blouse to announce her engagement and bought four dresses from Warehouse for her honeymoon.

So this refreshing bounce back to normality is in keeping with reports that for the moment at least –  Kate wishes to live her life under the radar as a housewife.

Her parents have also returned to their day-to-day lives.

Only days after escorting his daughter down the aisle, Michael Middleton was spotted engaging in a favourite British pastime: gardening.

Sporting gardening gloves and jeans, he mowed the lawn at his family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
