The Duchess of Cambridge was joined by her sister, Philippa Middleton, arriving in a Duchess-driven Land Rover. The two sisters sat in the front row of the Box, and watched the match with smiles on their faces. The Duchess wore a recycled cream dress and jacket set, while Middleton was wearing the same Project D peplum dress that Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wore to her niece’s christening in May.
