Let's Get Some Middleton Tennis Style Tips From Kate And Pippa Ahead Of Wimbledon

17 June 2013 by

Next week sees the start of one of the highlights of the British summer, the Wimbledon Championships 2013. Whether you've got tickets or you're planning on joining the crowd vying for a space on Murray Mound on a (hopefully) balmy evening, it's time to start thinking about that spectator wardrobe – just in case you’re captured on camera in the midst of a triumphant wave. But who best to turn to for style inspiration? We can think of a couple of ever so famous sisters who regularly sit courtside to watch the likes of Andy Murray and Roger Federer hit a ball around.

Kate and Pippa Middleton have been attending Wimbledon since they were children with Pippa recalling in her recent Vanity Fair column that they once got to the venue at 5am and queued "For three hours" on People's Sunday. Commitment to the game aside, we're sure these two have no trouble getting VIP tickets these days. In fact Pippa has been spotted at international matches in Paris, New York and London over the last year.

Along with Kate, Pippa has had plenty of practice at perfecting polished Centre Court style. The girl who revealed to Vanity Fair that as a teenager she told her parents if "I had to get married, it would be in my tennis whites", has served up a grand slam selection of bold hues in the stands. From the orange and green Paper London dress and yellow lace frock she wore to the US Open in September last year to the emerald green twinset she stepped out in for a day at the AEGON Championships with mum Carole this week, Pippa often ditches print in favour of strong blocks of colour. Kate opted for a similar look at the Olympics in Stella McCartney last August.

But being the Queen of literal dressing, the Duchess has also attended Wimbledon in a cream cable knitted sweater dress, white strapless summer dress and cream Joseph dress with matching blazer.
