A match for her girls... Carole Middleton, the mother of the bride


Two of a kind: Carole and Pippa Middleton kept in step as they wore almost identical outfits when they indulged in a spot of retail therapy in Chelsea

At 56, she has the slim, athletic figure of a woman half her age.

So perhaps this goes some way to explaining why Carole Middleton has started to dress like her children.

Prince William’s future mother-in-law and her younger daughter Pippa, 27, wore almost identical outfits as they ventured out for a shopping trip in Chelsea.

Both women sported smart navy jackets over casual above-the-knee blue and white patterned skirts.

While Pippa opted for a belted trench coat from Marks & Spencer, her mother wore a smart blazer thought to be from upmarket High Street label Joseph, teaming it with a Nicole Farhi skirt and Jaeger bag.

Spot the difference: Mrs Middleton wore a coat from upmarket High Street store Joseph, while her younger daughter opted for a Marks and Spencer's trench coat

Their ensembles were completed with flat black boots – a buckled biker-style that stopped just below the knee for Mrs Middleton, and a ruched pair from LK Bennett for her daughter, similar to the ones favoured by 29-year-old Kate.

While it is clear where the Middleton girls get their athletic physiques from, onlookers questioned whether Mrs Middleton’s outfit was a little too youthful and might have been more appropriate with a pair of low-heeled court shoes.

The mother of the bride also looked slightly drawn, which could be down to the strain of wedding preparations or her conversion to the controversial Dukan Diet, based on high-protein foods such as cottage cheese and prawns.

Pippa Middleton also visited the flower stand on Fulham Road, which was once frequented by the Princess of Wales during Monday's shopping trip

Mrs Middleton and Pippa have been indulging in an increasing amount of retail therapy as the April 29 wedding draws closer.

On Monday they spent several hours browsing high-end designer stores, including Jimmy Choo and Prada.

Pippa, who will be Kate’s chief bridesmaid, also visited the flower stand on Fulham Road once frequented by the Princess of Wales.
