A study in poise from the Middleton girls' school of legsellence

By Lynn Davidson

Mother knows best: Carole Middleton arrives at the dance show and manages to keep her dignity admirably

She hasn’t put a foot wrong since she became a royal in-law. So there was no chance of Carole Middleton letting down the side with an ungainly exit.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother displayed the art of getting out of a car in the most ladylike manner possible as she arrived at a dance show in London.

Having a pair of elegant legs the envy of women much younger than her 56 years certainly helps. But practice makes perfect – as she has no doubt told her daughters, Kate and Pippa.

Following in the footsteps: Pippa and Kate have clearly inherited their mother's sense of decorum

As well as inheriting their mother’s fabulous figure, both follow the Middleton mantra on arriving in style – sit back, knees together, steady on the heels and do your best to smile.

Carole, 56, was dressed in a black dress and heels and white jacket by Catherine Walker, showing off her toned legs.

Kate's father opted for the suited look with a blue shirt and red tie, adding a pop of colour.

The couple usually keep a low profile, despite the international spotlight being on their family as eldest daughter Catherine married Prince William in April 2011.

Since then, their middle child, Pippa, has also enjoyed worldwide fame, dubbed 'Her Royal Hotness', after her turn as Royal Maid of Honour at her sister's wedding.

However last night it was the turn of the Middleton parents to enjoy the spotlight and they both looked very much at ease being photographed at the dance event in aid of the British Red Cross.
