Last week, Grazia Daily admitted to being sliiightly disappointed that the Middleton in Wimbledon's royal box was little sister Pippa rather than Princess Catherine. Boo! But today, we have the Actual Real Duchess of Cambridge in our midsts.
On this fine Wednesday, Kate Middleton is watching the Centre Court action alongside hubby Prince William for Andy Murray's quarter final against David Ferrer — but forget the tennis, what's Kate wearing? Well — shock! horror! — the renowned royal recycler is re-wearing one of her many iconic frocks and — quelle surprise! — it's by Alexander McQueen. Yep, we've said it before and we'll say it again: this is one frugal Princess who makes the most of her wardrobe.
You'll recognise the cable knit sweater dress from Kate's visit to Canada last year when she wore it to Prince Edward Island, the setting for Anne of Green Gables (reportedly K-Middy's favourite book). And with that sailor collar and cricket style trim by the designer of her wedding dress, Sarah Burton, it's certainly perfect Wimbledon wear. As for that lush hair, the DoC is wearing it loose and bouncy - a reminder to Kim Sears that she's the hair queen, perhaps?
As avid tennis fans, Kate and Wills did the very same this time last year, watching Murray during his fourth round tie with Richard Gasquet. On that occassion, Kate looked just as polished and perfect in a super-cute pleated dress by Temperley. So will we see the royal couple doing the Mexican wave again this year? Stay tuned to that telly box!
