With The Duchess of Cambridge currently on maternity leave, we take a look back at her Wimbledon wardrobe over the years that have made quite the racquet.
For Kate’s first Wimbledon appearance post her wedding and as the newest member of the Royal family, she chose to go with the flow - literally! Channelling a pleated 1920’s classic tennis look by Temperley London, nothing was stopping her joining play on centre court, minus the trainers.
A year into marriage she was in the first throws of outlining her admirable reputation as the ’thrifty Duchess’. Here we see the start of her ‘repeat’ outfits as she wore the cable knit sailor inspired dress by Alexander McQueen which she previously wore for the Royal Tour of Canada.
During her second 2012 Wimbledon visit she displays her love of white in yet another repeated outfit. This Joseph dress was worn in 2011 while on her North American Royal Tour and the Joseph jacket in 2012 to the Epsom Derby.
It’s all white again! Kate skipped Wimbledon in 2013 due to the birth of Prince George, but returned in style wearing an eyelet white three quarter sleeve dress by Australian brand Zimmermann. Another repeat, she had previously worn this dress on the Royal Tour of Australia.
Back again four days later for the Gentleman’s Final, Kate dropped white for a colourful and bold Jonathan Saunders print dress, first worn at Solomon Islands on the Jubilee Tour of 2012.
The red LK Bennett number was a knock out look that perfectly framed her slim figure, adding sophistication to past outfits accessorised with a DKNY leopard print clutch.
Grown up and modern, the now mother of two chose this yellow Roksanda number which is a clean mix between fashion and tradition and above all consistent with the Duchess’ personal style.
For her second 2016 trip, she stuck with her favourite designer Alexander McQueen in a print and cut that showed off her sleek figure.
Embracing the 2017 polka dot trend we love that she strode out in confidence. This Dolce and Gabbana polkadot number, along with her new shorter hairstyle, was worn to turn heads.
Kate topped off 2017 Men's finals wearing this never before seen Catherine Walker cap sleeve dress, accompanied with her Victoria Beckham handbag which she has been spotted wearing to many Wimbledon events over the years.
