As Princess Kate’s only sister and aunt to a future King, Pippa Matthews is frequently photographed on vacation. The British socialite and lifestyle author is also married to James Matthews whose father David owns luxury hotel Eden Rock in St. Barths. The French-speaking Caribbean island has become Pippa and James’ favorite vacation destination and a place for their three children to play on picturesque white sand beaches and frolic in the crystal blue waters of Saint Jean Beach.
While on vacation, Pippa Middleton-Matthews is often spotted in colorful bright bikinis and frilly one-pieces.
Here are Pippa Middleton-Matthews 10 Best Swimsuit Moments:
- English Rose
In August 2015, Pippa as well as her mother Carole Middleton and brother James Middleton were spotted enjoying the beautiful beaches of St. Barths. The then 31-year-old looked tan and fit as she played in the surf and sea in a Melissa Odabash Grenada Embellished two-piece red bikini. Top/Bottoms
2. Blue Crush
Paddleboarding the waters of St. Barth’s on the same family trip in 2015, Pippa rocked a Biondi Boutique Opal blue printed bikini plus a pair of Givenchy tortoise sunglasses.
3. Teal Appeal
Pippa made a splash at one of Kate and William’s favorite holiday destinations Mustique (the Wales family have spent time at a $34,000/week villa on the Caribbean island). The Hoka model was spotted in a Vix Bia Tube Bikini for a little fun in the sun. Top/Bottoms
4. Sleigh All Day
On Christmas Day in December 2019, Pippa was photographed not under any mistletoe but instead beneath swaying palm trees on Saint Barthélemy. For the tropical vacation, Princess Catherine’s nearest and dearest wore a Heidi Klein polka dot bikini.

6. Mermaid Squad
On January 2nd 2019, Pippa and her husband displayed their fit physiques on the shores of St. Barths. The Heartfelt book author rocked a Biondi Contrast Stitch bikini for the holiday escape.
7. Red Hot
Not one to merely lounge on the beach with a book, Pippa was back to her Baywatch Babe runs and surf grazing walks on vacation with her husband and three children in February 2023 in St. Barths. On this outing, the busy writer and mother was clad in a Heidi Klein Belize Reversible bikini and Jimmy Choo ‘Ciara’ brown sunglasses.
8. Roman Holiday
On an Italian babymoon with her husband James in August 2018, Pippa opted for a classic halter dark red bikini with gold trim.
9. Ruffling Feathers
Ocean gazing while on St. Barths and spending time with her children diving off boats, seashell hunting, and building sand castles — Pippa was vacation-ready in her ruffled white one shoulder one-piece swimsuit in February 2023.
10. Making Waves
Before marriage and children, Pippa and sister Kate twinned in white bikinis (and washboard abs) in Ibiza, Spain in 2006 on board a luxury yacht. The dynamic duo competed for best splashy stunt with Pippa doing an impressive backflip into the water.
