Carole and Pippa Middleton were spotted out and about together.

The mother and daughter were seen together yesterday evening as they arrived at a poignant memorial concert for a close friend of Princes William and Harry.

The two Middleton ladies, who are the mother and sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge were seen smiling at each other as they arrived at the evening event all wrapped up in their winter attire.

And the pair were even matching in festive colours like Duchesses Catherine and Camilla did earlier this week.

Mum-of-one Pippa, whose husband James Matthews was also at the event with her, was dressed in a long calf-length winter green wrap coat with a pair of stylish suede boots.

While mum Carole went for a dark red dress with black tights and boots, finished with a short black boucle style coat and fluffy black scarf to keep her warm.

Duchess Catherine’s mum and sister were out together to attend a Christmas Carol concert in honour the two Princes’ late friend Henry van Straubenzee.

The carol concert, organised every year by the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, was held at St Lukes Church just off the infamous King’s Road in London’s Chelsea.

The Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which was set up shortly after the 18-year-old passed away from a car crash back in 2002, is a small charity that aims to fight poverty in Uganda through education.

Both the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex have been patrons of the memorial fund since January 2009, as both Princes were close friends of its namesake.

However, there was no sign of either Duke last night, as Prince William is currently on a royal tour in the Middle East, while Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan Markle are on a six-week break from their royal duties.

Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had attended the service last year though.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
