Despite their wildly different lifestyles since Kate became Duchess Catherine of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Pippa Middleton seem to be one of the closest royal duos out there, succeeded only, perhaps, by Princes William and Harry's brotherly love. Pippa herself has even said, "We're very close. And, you know, we support each other and get each other's opinions and things." Here are some of the best sisterly moments between Pippa and Kate.

The Middletons lived in Jordan for two-and-a-half years. In this photo released by the family prior to Kate's wedding in 2011, we can see how close-knit the entire Middelton clan (that's their dad!) was and still is.

In their first public appearance together at the Cheltenham Festival, the sisters bundled up in warm coats—check out Kate's hat!—to watch the horses. Horse races are common royal events, and this was an early one for the Sisters Middleton.

The duo attended the launch party for the book The Young Stalin: The Adventurous Early Life Of The Dictator 1878-1917 by Simon Sebag Montefiore. In this pic, it's almost surprising just how much alike the two look—they could be twins!

It's admittedly not the most flattering photo ever (sorry to catch you mid-sentence, Pippa!), but it is nice to see a pre-Duchess Kate getting to live a bit of normal life. This pic was snapped while the two enjoyed a night out at London cocktail bar Mahiki.
