Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are befriending a surprising member of the Middleton family. (Hint: It’s not Kate.)

The duchess’s younger sister, Pippa, recently attended the Christmas Carol Service at St Luke’s Church in England alongside her husband, James Matthews, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Pippa, 35, was spotted wearing a maroon coat by French Connection, complete with black tights, pumps and a crossbody bag.

Although the royals weren’t photographed at the event, we do know Markle read a poem—“Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson—during the service, while Harry gave a speech. The ceremony was hosted by the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, a charity honoring Prince Harry and Prince William’s late friend.

No word on why Kate didn’t accompany her sister, but we have no doubt she has a legitimate excuse (read: three kids).
