Beaming in blue! The Duchess of Cambridge looks chic in a pastel gown as she and Prince William arrive for the final day of Wimbledon

  • Tennis fan Kate, 37, was joined in the Wimbledon Royal Box today by her husband Prince William, 37, 
  • Yesterday the Duchess watched the Ladies Singles Final with sister Pippa and sister-in-law Meghan Markle
  • Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are competing this afternoon to be crowned 2019 Wimbledon champion

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were all smiles as they arrived at Wimbledon today for the final day of the Championships.

Today’s Men’s Singles Final sees Novak Djokovic, 32, take on Roger Federer, 37, with the Swiss legend having seen off close rival Rafa Nadal in the semi-final earlier this week.

Kate looked stunning in a chic baby blue custom Emilia Wickstead gown with elegant capped sleeves and square neckline, which she teamed with nude pointed heels. 

She also proudly wore her green and purple bow brooch, which is a nod to her patronage of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

Prince William coordinated perfectly with his wife’s outfit, donning a pale blue shirt with a grey suit jacket and nacy chinos.

Yesterday Kate made her way to the grounds early to attend a lunch for club members and former champions in her role as patron. 

The Duchess looked glamorous in a bespoke green D&G midi dress, estimated to have cost £2,150, previously worn in 2016 on a visit to Kelowna, during a royal tour of Canada, and completed the look with a cream handbag from the same brand. 

She was then joined by sister Pippa and sister-in-law Meghan Markle, with the two duchesses putting rumours of a royal rift to bed as they were seen laughing and joking.

It was their second joint appearance in a week, after attending a charity polo match on Wednesday with their children to cheer on their competing husbands.

Delighted Duchesses! Kate and Meghan were seen laughing together in the Royal Box at Wimbledon as they put on a united front during the Women’s Singles Final, alongside Pippa Middleton 

Firm friends: The Duchesses gave each other their full attention as they engaged in conversation at the end of the Ladies Singles Final at Wimbledon 

Meghan was cheering on pal Serena Williams – who lost to Romanian Simona Halep – and opted for a crisp white shirt teamed with a pleated £350 Boss midi skirt, with an abstract blue and black pattern.

It was the second time in a week that the duchess attended to see her friend play, although her last visit caused controversy after bodyguards told fans not to take pictures of her, and she flouted rules by wearing jeans in a members’ only area.

The controversy came just days after Meghan and Harry faced a public backlash for insisting on keeping their son Archie’s christening completely private, and refusing to reveal the names of his godparents.

No feud here! The duelling Duchesses seemed to be getting on famously as they exchanged smiles in the Royal Box, ahead of the Wimbledon Ladies Singles Final
