IO – Kate Middleton arrived in Wimbledon on Tuesday. Kate, 37, opted for a sleek white custom-made Suzannah shirt dress with a small bow and a slender Alexander McQueen belt, turning heads as she made her way to her seat this morning.
The royal looked in excellent spirits as she took her place on Court 14 on day two of the tennis tournament, which will see players including Serena Williams and Roger Federer take to the court.
The Duchess looked deep in concentration as she watched British player Harriet Dart, 22, ranked 157th in the world, beat American Christina McHale, before Kate moved on to Centre Court to take her seat in the Royal Box.
The mother of three sat next to players Anne Keothavong and Katie Boulter in an outside court, where they watched Harriet Dart face off against Christian McHale. She then moved to the royal box in center court, where she was joined by Wimbledon chairman Philip Brook.
Kate previously wore a dress by designer Suzannah in 2014, and day dresses by the brand cost £2,350.
While Kate’s appearance came as a surprise to some attendees, royal admirers know she has an affinity for sports. In fact, she’s attended The Championships before, including last year with her husband, Prince William.
The Duchess was also pictured as she visited the Aorangi Park to see the practice courts and players’ warm-up area. Whilst there, Kate met Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray.
Kate, patron of the Lawn Tennis Association, is a huge fan and broke her maternity leave following the birth of Prince Louis last year to attend one of her favorite annual events. (rp/from various sources)
