It looks like Pippa Middleton got something of a shock when she supported her sister's brother-in-law, Prince Harry, as he competed at the Invictus Games.

Pippa looked on in mock horror as Prince Harry and Zara Phillips competed in a Wheelchair Rugby exhibition match in the Copper Box Arena during the Invictus Games. And she soon found out why it it's often dubbed 'murderball', as the contact sport is extremely fast-paced.

And Pippa wasn't the only one getting into the spirit of the game. She attended the match with her brother James Middleton, as well as Zara Phillips' brother Peter and his wife Autumn.

The foursome cheered on from the sidelines as as they watched Prince Harry, Zara and her husband Mike Tindall compete against each other.

According to the Daily Mail, the paralympic game 'murderball' involves two teams battling it out to get the ball across the opposition's goal line within 40 seconds.

The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for injured and wounded service personnel, and has been taking place at the London Olympics 2012 venues.

Prince Harry has been hugely involved in organising the event, which David Cameron said could become a permanent fixture.

Of course, Pippa was looking chic as usual for her appearance at the games, and arrived in a monochrome shift dress paired with black ankle boots.

Pippa's sister, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, recently had to pull out of an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games after it was revealed she is suffering with acute morning sickness.

It was recently announced she is expecting her second child with husband Prince William.
