Last week, Princess Charlotte was christened in the most Royal (Mario Testino photographed) way possible. And guess who turned up looking hot, mysterious, and bearded? James Middleton, Kate's youngest brother. This weekend, James was again photographed, this time with Pippa, looking like the facially haired man of your dreams, cool sunglasses included. It's unclear from James' girlfriend's Instagram feed when exactly this bearded hotness occurred, but it's fair to say James Middleton's beard is the new bridesmaid dress in the family.
Creepy costume, still hot.
