On Tuesday morning, Prince William and Kate made a surprise appearance at the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. Today marks their first appearance at the tennis championship this year.
Duchess Kate looked stunning in a blue polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich accessorized with pearl earrings for the event. The purple ribbon she has wore at every event since 2017, which is a traditional symbol of the organization, was pinned to her dress.
Prince William wore a pale grey checked jacket and navy trousers.
The couple was joined by Kate’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton, who was wearing white floral dress. They were seated to the royal couple’s left in the Royal Box.
The royal couple, who were joined by the Chairman of the All England Club Ian Hewitt, took their seats in the Royal Box ahead of the men’s singles quarter-final tennis match between Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner.
Over the past week, Kate’s parents as well as her brother James Middleton and his wife Alizée Thevenet have made appearances at Wimbledon.
Kate, who regularly heads to SW19 for The Championship, is the patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) and a keen tennis fan. She took over the role of the Queen back in 2016. Kate has been a regular at the tournament since before she became a royal.
The first match watched by the royals was a match in which Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic went up against Team Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
After this game, they are expected to move out of the royal box and take a seat near Court One to better cheer on British hopeful Cameron Norrie, set to face American Tommy Paul.
