Kate Middleton’s big weekend at Wimbledon begins today with Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the tennis tournament ahead of her sister-in-law to greet the tennis players ahead of the ladies’ final they’ll watch. This is Meghan and Kate’s first joint event this year. Their last joint event, just the two of them, was a year ago at last year’s Wimbledon ladies’ final.
Kate dressed up today, choosing a gorgeous emerald Dolce & Gabbana dress.
This isn’t Kate’s first time in the Dolce & Gabbana look. She first wore it on her tour of Canada in 2016:
Kate and Meghan have both attended Wimbledon separately this year. Kate went first, watching a game on July 2, day two of the tournament. Kate is the royal patron of Wimbledon, so this is one of the big annual events she supports. Kate wore a white dress with black buttons and a black Alexander McQueen bow belt that day:
The Duchess of Cambridge has been changing up her style deliberately lately, People reported earlier this week. She and her stylist Natasha Archer have been trying to make her fashion a little more young- and edgy-looking.
“Kate felt like she was in a bit of a style rut and thought she needed a little edge,” a source told the outlet. “She’s consciously worked on getting her look to be a bit younger and more modern, and it’s worked! She looks amazing, and she is getting lots of compliments about it.”
Kate will give the world another glimpse at that revamped style tomorrow when she and her husband Prince William return to the Wimbledon tournament to watch the gentlemen’s final. The couple attended the same match last year.
