Carole Middleton breaks with tradition in velvet flares


The Princess of Wales’s parents turned out to support their daughter at her annual Christmas concert on Friday evening.

Carole, 68, appeared to take a leaf out of her eldest daughter Kate’s style book in a striking velvet ensemble.

The businesswoman teamed her black high-waisted flares with a matching top and a double-breasted cropped blazer from Great Scot. 

She completed her ensemble with a pillbox clutch bag and pair of suede court shoes.

Carole kept her accessories simple, with the addition of some pearl earrings.

Her brunette locks were styled in a straight blow dry with flipped ends and she opted for a bronzed makeup look.

The Middleton matriarch typically opts for tailored coats or colour block dresses, but she jumped on the velvet trouser trend for the outing.

Carole’s husband Michael, 74, looked smart in a blue suit and a patterned tie.

Meanwhile, the couple’s eldest daughter Pippa Middleton, 40, rocked a tweed suit from Saloni as she attended the festive event in London with her husband, James Matthews.

Pippa and James are parents to three children – Arthur, Grace and Rose – who were not in attendance.

Also missing from the festivities were Carole and Michael’s youngest child, James Middleton, and his wife, Alizee Thevenet. The couple welcomed their son Inigo in October.

Prince William and Kate were joined at the carol concert by their three children, Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, eight, and five-year-old Prince Louis.
