The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final to watch the historic match between Serbia's Novak Djokovic and Australia's Nick Kyrgios. The pair was joined by their son, Prince George, who marked his debut at the tennis tournament last Sunday. Both parents were photographed as they affectionately talked him through the salient moments of the game. The young royal and his mother put on a very animated display as they watched the nail-biting match.
The Duchess of Cambridge is often seen at the Wimbledon tennis tournament especially after she became royal patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club in 2016.
On Tuesday the 5th of July, Kate made her first appearance at Wimbledon for the 2022 semi-finals. She re-wore a stylish cornflower-blue belted white polka-dot midi dress by Alessandra Rich, with the club’s badge, a dark green and purple bow, pinned to her dress. She accessorized the dress with pearl drop earrings, Finlay’s Henrietta sunglasses with tortoiseshell frames and a smart Mulberry white bag. Surprisingly she wore white sling-back pumps instead of her usual simple suede heels. Once again, Kate was a display of elegance and beauty, and proved to us, once again, that sustainable and recycled fashion is the way of the future.
Over the weekend, on Saturday the 9th, Kate made her second appearance at the Championships to attend the Wimbledon Women's Singles Final; this time she was unaccompanied. The duchess looked radiant in a bright yellow Roksanda flowing maxi-length outfit, featuring short sleeves and an off center statement bow. She paired the dress, which she previously wore during the Cambridges' royal tour of the Caribbean in March this year, with white Gianvito Rossi leather pumps. She embellished the look with Kiki McDonough Eden citrine and flower drop earrings and her sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Once again, she pinned the AELTC's green and purple colored bow to her outfit.
Throughout the match Kate seemed to be captivated as ever as she watched Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan defeat Ons Jabeur of Tunisia in three sets. The women's finals were significant for a number of reasons: both Rybakina and Jabeur competed in their first Grand Slam finals, Rybakina was the first Kazakhstan patriot to make it to a Slam final, and Jabeur was the first Tunisian Arab woman to do so.
Kate was the epitome of elegance as she made her third and last appearance at the tournament this week. She wore another signature midi-length polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich. The navy blue and white polka dot creation had a ruffled Chelsea collar with a bow tie featured at the center, as well as pleated puffed sleeves and a peplum waistline. Kate paired her dress with contrasting-toe ‘Fab’ sling-back pumps by the same designer. She also completed the look with diamond and sapphire earrings with a matching pendant necklace, and a full steel Cartier ballon bleu watch. Prince George matched his mother’s ensemble as he wore a neat navy suit with a white shirt and striped tie. Prince William was ever so stylish in dark trousers and a light earth grey plaid jacket.
As of 2019, Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, stepped down from his role as President of the AELTC. Two years later, Kate took on a ceremonial role, presenting trophies to the players.
Wimbledon ended on Sunday, with Novak Djokovic winning his fourth consecutive Men's Singles title, beating Australian Nick Kyrgios in four sets.
