Pippa Middleton looked the part as she visited the Mary Hare School for deaf children in Newbury
Pippa Middleton did her bit for charity yesterday with a visit to the Mary Hare School for deaf children in Newbury, near her home in Berkshire.
As her older sister, Kate Middleton, was up in Manchester launching a new school counselling service on the Wythenshawe housing estate, Pippa was opening a new £2million boarding house facility.
Looking suitably regal in a tweed two-piece suit, Pippa, 29, posed for photographs and chatted with pupils at the school for profoundly and severely deaf children and young people.
Pippa became an ambassador for the charity after hearing about its work through a family friend.
During her visit, Pippa said: ‘It gives me great pleasure to be a supporter of Mary Hare and make a difference to the lives of deaf children. I wanted to help out, because this is a local charity close to my family’s home and I have been charmed by the inspiring children that attend, not least for their charismatic and heart-warming attitude to life.’
What do you think of Pippa Middleton’s style? Is it perfect for a charity visit, or too frumpy for a young woman? Let us know in the comment box below.
