Kate Middleton inspires mother Carole's fashion style
Carole Middleton seems to have taken fashion tips from her pregnant daughter Kate Middleton, who is due to give birth to the royal baby in mid-July.
Carole, 58, attended Wimbledon to cheer on Andy Murray in the quarter finals, and has clearly been inspired by Kate's fashion style.

The mother of three wore a leopard print dress and bright, blue blazer. The animal pattern sparked memories of when Kate christened the Royal Princess cruise liner at Southampton Docks in June, wearing a £169 monochrome leopard print coat from Hobbs.
Carole paired her animal-patterned dress with a small nude handbag and matching patent court shoes that she and her daughters Kate and Pippa Middleton, 29, are often seen wearing.
Carole arrived at the tennis championships with her husband Michael who looked dapper in white trousers and a navy jacket.
This is the second time Carole and Michael have attended Wimbledon this year, and seemed to be enjoying a leisurely day out before the imminent arrival of the royal baby.
The soon-to-be grandparents will no doubt play key roles in the baby's upbringing, and after giving birth, Kate is expected to spend the first six weeks post-labour at her parents' house in Berkshire.
Carole was seen enjoying the tennis championships last Wednesday, and looked just as stylish then in a cobalt blue dress.
She accessorised the summery number with a cropped white blazer, and the same nude court shoes and handbag.
As keen tennis fans, the Middleton family have made several appearances at Wimbledon. Pippa and younger brother James Middleton, 26, were spotted enjoying the games from the royal box on the first day of the championships.
Pippa recently wrote an article in which she revealed that she first visited Wimbledon at the age of eight.
"During this first trip I acted on my childish tennis dreams and bought myself a postcard of the women’s championship trophy, on which I wrote, 'I will win this one day,' with my signature below," said Pippa.
"A day out at Wimbledon is still one of the highlights of my summer," she said.
