Pippa Middleton’s 1st Post-Wedding Appearance at HCM Fundraiser

Pippa Middleton, (sister of Dutchess Katherine of Cambridge and sister-in-law of Prince William) and her brand new husband, James Matthews,  made their first public appearance as a married couple at a fundraiser for the Miles Frost Fund.  The Frost Fund, founded in memory of Middleton’s late friend Miles Frost who died from undiagnosed HCM, raises money for genetic testing of family members who have lost a close relative to sudden cardiac arrest, as well as funding HCM research.

Pippa, just back from her honeymoon to French Polynesia and Australia, looked refreshed in her white jumper and carried a red heart-shaped clutch to emphasize the purpose of the occasion.

The fundraiser also attracted other royals such as Princess Eugenie and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

Here is a video of Wilfred Frost, brother of Miles Frost and son of Sir David Frost, talking about his father and brother’s deaths and the formation of the charity.

Duchess Kate’s Sister, Pippa, Supports British HCM Charity

Pippa Middleton, who came to the public’s attention during the wedding of her sister Katherine to Prince William, has recently dedicated her efforts toward raising money for HCM genetic testing and research.  Middleton’s efforts are in honor of her late friend Miles Frost, who was lost to sudden cardiac arrest due to HCM in 2015. Frost’s father, British journalist and media personality David Frost, died from HCM just two years earlier in 2013, but this information was never communicated to the family.

The Miles Frost Fund, a partnership with the British Heart Foundation , helps families who have lost a member to a sudden death obtain genetic testing in order to learn if other family members are similarly affected. The Frost Fund also funds research by U.K.researchers working towards finding a cure for HCM.
