Pippa Middleton wore a very striking look for her first official appearance since having a baby

With all that's been going on in the royal family in the past few months, you'd be forgiven for forgetting all about Pippa Middleton.

While Meghan has been getting increasingly pregnant and Kate has supposedly been feuding with her, Pippa has been focusing on new motherhood out of the spotlight.

She welcomed her first baby, a boy named Arthur, with husband James Matthews four months ago but made her return to public life last night.

Pippa attended the British Heart Foundation Gala in London last night in a dress by Temperley.

It was a pretty busy number - a pussy bow neck tie, ruffled cap sleeves and a eye-catching  pattern - but the new mum more than pulled it off.

She wore her hair pulled back in milkmaid braids and kept her accessories simple - just a plain red clutch and small gold earrings.

Pippa is an ambassador for the British Heart Foundation and gave a speech at the event, saying the role was one of the most rewarding things she's ever done.

The gala was Pippa's first official public appearance since becoming a mum.

She took several months off and spent some time in St Barths in the Caribbean over Christmas and New Year's.

She, James and baby Arthur were joined by her brother James Middleton and his girlfriend Alize Thevene and her brother-in-law Spencer Matthews, his wife Vogue Williams and their son Theodore.
