For Kate, watching Wimbledon was a family tradition growing up. Polka dots are a classic print that can be worn again and again, so a dress like Kate's is always going to be a sound investment. And although the match was stopped twice due to rain, the Duchess was anything but gloomy.
The tennis stars then asked if she played the sport, to which she laughed and replied: "Yes, but not to any standard!" She mistakenly asked them about their matches, not realizing they actually played the previous day. And a statement issued at the time on her behalf said "The Duchess was pleased to accept the kind offer, particularly given her interest in tennis".
The Duchess of Cambridge wore "black heeled sandals and a white bag" to go along with the polka-dotted Dolce & Gabbana dress, noted USA Today. She told them them that their participation "makes the game happen". Although she had served as patron for 64 years, she has never had a keen passion for tennis and so has visited the Wimbledon tournament just twice in the past 35 years. Andy Murray won that year's tournament. "I wrote to him [Andy] afterwards saying sorry for not being there".
Aside from her ladylike style, Kate Middleton might best be known for her signature long locks, which she's been rocking easily since she first met Prince William back at the University of St. Andrews.
