Pippa Middleton looked radiant in a green dress as she joined her parents Carole and Michael Middleton at the Platinum Party on Saturday night.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, 38, stepped out in a lime green frock with ruched detailing across the chest for the star-studded night out at Buckingham Palace.
In keeping with her laid back style, Pippa wore her brunette locks in loose curls and kept her makeup to a minimum. She finished the ensemble with a few well-chosen pieces of jewellery, including a delicate necklace.
Pippa, who is mother to Arthur, three, and Grace, one, did not appear to be joined by her husband James Matthews.
Meanwhile her mother Carole opted for a crisp cream blazer and wore her hair in a fresh blow dry. Michael was typically dapper in a suit and tie.
Despite not being members of the Royal Family, the Middletons were able to bag much sought-after tickets to the concert celebrating 70 years of Her Majesty’s reign.

The Duchess of Cambridge has maintained a close relationship with her parents, brother, sister and their families, even as her role within the Royal Family has become more demanding.
The Middletons are often quiet pillars of support at high profile moments in Kate Middleton’s life, including the recent carol concert at Westminster Abbey.
The Royal Family turned out to show their support for the Queen as she celebrates 70 years on the throne.
While she was forced to miss out amid ongoing health struggles, she still managed to steal the show by starring opposite a computer generated Paddington Bear in a hilarious sketch to open the concert.
The Queen brought the house down when she was joined for a cream tea by Paddington.
For the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, James Bond famously made an appearance with the Queen – and now it was the turn of everyone’s favourite Peruvian bear – who was filmed alongside the monarch.
The Queen revealed she shares Paddington’s love of marmalade sandwiches and keeps an emergency stash in her trademark handbag.
The film was shown as the star-studded party in the shadow of Buckingham Palace began, and the Queen and her furry guest had a novel way of introducing the first act – tapping out the beat of Queen’s We Will Rock You on China teacups.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who earlier made a surprise visit to Cardiff Castle with their parents for a Jubilee event, were sat in the front row of the royal box for the concert alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
Members of the Royal Family joined them in the VIP seats, as did politicians including Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Party of two: The Queen performed a skit for the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace, where she and Paddington Bear chatted before she tapped along to ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen to kick start the party and star-studded concert this evening
The bear congratulated the Queen on her reign of 70 years, saying: ‘Happy Jubilee Ma’am. And thank you. For everything.’
American singer Lambert, 40, took to the stage dressed in a black and gold embellished coat to continue the beat alongside the Royal military band.
The rock band’s guitarist Brian May made another memorable entrance on stage by being raised from beneath the stage while shredding on his guitar.
May created a classic moment 20 years ago, during the 2002 Golden Jubilee celebrations, when he performed God Save The Queen on Buckingham Palace’s roof.
The rock group also performed Don’t Stop Me Now to a crowd of cheering fans as multi-coloured lights flashed across the stage.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George were also seen waving their Union Jack flags along to the song We Are The Champions as they sat in the Royal Box at the front in between their parents.

They were followed by Jax Jones who opened his set with his song You Don’t Know Me while sitting in a bed, which he previously said was in tribute to people making music from their bedrooms.
Behind him was a mock-up English Heritage blue plaque on a screen which read: ‘Jax Jones Bedroom Producer SE23 lives here.’
He then introduced rapper Stefflon Don, singer Mabel and musician John Newman – who joined him for different songs
Elbow followed up with a performance of One Day Like This alongside the Citizens of the World Choir, before Ashley Banjo and his dance troupe Diversity took to the stage.
They delivered an energetic routine to a number of British songs popular throughout the Queen’s reign.
Moving from the sixties to the songs of today, the group danced to The Beatles’ She Loves You, the Bee Gees’ Night Fever and David Bowie’s Let’s Dance.
They then danced to the Spice Girls’ Spice Up Your Life, One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful and Stormzy’s Big For Your Boots.
The concert came at the end of a busy day that saw the royal family travel around the country joining people celebrating the Queen’s 70-year reign.
