The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton wore a classic white dress with a floral skirt to the Wimbledon tennis final to see Roger Federer snag his eighth title.


The Duchess and her husband Prince William enjoyed a day of tennis along with other celebs such as Hugh GrantEddie Redmayne and Bradley Cooper.

The dress, by Catherine Walker & Co, was a bit more subdued than Middleton’s usual choice for dress. But the color and style matched the tennis event. The Duchess added a classy purple bow brooch at the neckline, which fits with the Wimbledon traditional colors of green and purple.

The designer is not new to the Middleton family. Mother Carole Middleton wore a sky blue coat to Kate and Prince William’s wedding in 2011, and a pale pink ensemble to daughter Pippa Middleton‘s wedding earlier this year. The designer is known for wedding couture, including dresses for the mother of the bride and groom.

Kate is a big fan of tennis, and goes to as many Wimbledon matches as she can. She recently spoke about how she missed seeing Andy Murray‘s 2013 title because she was near to term with little Prince George. “I was very heavily pregnant with George so I wasn’t able to turn up,” she recalls. “I wrote to [Andy] afterwards saying sorry for not being there but huge congratulations.”
