As patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, The Duchess of Cambridge attended Wimbledon today. She donned a familiar colour combination of an all white and black ensemble that we have seen Catherine wear many times over the years at Wimbledon. The Duchess sat court side, showing us many of her expressive match tension faces, that she has become famous for.
The Duchess opted for a bespoke dress from British luxury couture designer Suzannah. The vintage-style button-down white shirt dress showcases a 1940’s style, with its notch collar, peaked shoulders, and puff three-quarter sleeves ending in cuffs with contrast black buttons. Double breasted contrast black buttons cover the bodice then shift and move into a single row through the fit and flare midi length skirt, with a slit from the bottom of the thigh. The dress features neat pleated pintuck folds down each side of the bodice and running down into the skirt.
Kate removed the thin white round buckle belt and replaced it with her own black leather thin belt with diagonal bow detail. We first saw this belt worn in Paris and though it was never formally ID’d, many believed it to be an Alexander McQueen belt.
Catherine carried a new cross-body bag from Alexander McQueen. The ‘Raffia and leather mini shoulder bag’, which retails for £418. The satchel style bag is made from a tan raffia with thick contrast black leather trim around the edges, top grab handle and optional adjustable shoulder strap. A gold metal shield shaped lock clasp is engraved with the letters AMcQ. This bag is currently sold out, though you can still view it here.
Try this as a much more affordable option here.
Kate wore a new pair of Rayban sunglasses. The ‘Wayfarer II round-frame tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses’, retail for £170. We know that Kate is a fan of these brand of sunglasses, having seen both her and her sister Pippa Matthews wear them on numerous occasions. You can purchase these glasses here.
Kate re-wore her Gianvito Rossi ’85 block heel pumps’ retailing for £495. The black suede block heel pumps feature a prominent pointed toe and a heel height of 85mm. These pumps are also available in red leather, red suede, tan suede and leopard suede. You can purchase these heels here and here.

For the second time in as many days, Kate wore her Catherine Zoraida ‘Gold Fern Hoop Earrings’, retailing for £150. The oversize gold hoops are made from 18ct gold-plated silver and feature a pattern of ferns and hanging from a hook earring. You can purchase these earrings here.
The Duchess was spotted wearing her citrine cushion cut ring on her right hand. We have seen this ring worn a handful of times – including the Men’s Final last year – and it still has no formal ID.
The green and purple bow indicates Kate’s affiliation with the All England Lawn and Tennis Association (Wimbeldon’s formal name)
A very interesting look from the Duchess today. We love the vintage vibe and feel to the dress, and it is refreshing to see Catherine carry a larger sized McQueen bag, than the small box clutches she favours.
