Kate Middleton Wears Balmain, Sitting With Roger Federer At Wimbledon


Kate Middleton Wears Balmain, Sitting With Roger Federer At Wimbledon


Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, made a stunning appearance at the 2023 Wimbledon Champions on Monday, wearing a mint green and white ensemble that matched the colors of the prestigious tournament. She was stated next to tennis legend Roger Federer and his wife Mirka in the royal box on the center court, where they enjoyed some thrilling matches and lively conversations.


Middleton opted for a double-breasted mint green Balmain blazer with a white lapel and buttons paired with a white leather Mulberry bag and jewelry from Shyla London and Sezane. She also wore a purple bow on her blazer to signify her role as a patron of the All England Tennis Club, a position she inherited from Queen Elizabeth II in 2017.


Federer, who holds a record 20 Grand Slam titles, looked sharp in a taupe suit with a pinstripe shirt and dotted tie. His wife Mirka, whom he married in 2009, wore a white lace dress. The Swiss star is a close friend of Middleton and her husband Pince William, who have attended many of his matches over the years. He even played a friendly game with Middleton last month to celebrate Wimbledon's ball boys and girls ahead of the tournament.


The trio seemed to have a great time at Wimbledon, chatting animatedly and laughing together. They watched some exciting games, including Federer's compatriot Belinda Bencic's victory over Alison Riske and Andy Murray's comeback win over Nikoloz Basilashvili. Middleton also met some of the staff and volunteers who make Wimbledon possible, as well as some young tennis fans.


Middleton is a keen tennis enthusiast and has been a regular visitor to Wimbledon since marrying Prince William in 2011. She has also shown her support for the sport by hosting events at Kensington Palace and visiting tennis clubs across the country. She once revealed that her son Prince George is already learning to play tennis and that Federer is his favorite player.


Wimbledon is one of the most prestigious and oldest tennis tournaments in the world, dating back to 1877. It is known for its strict all-white dress code for players, its grass courts, and its royal patronage. This year, however, it has introduced some changes, such as allowing women players to wear dark-colored undershorts to ease anxiety around periods.


Middleton's appearance at Wimbledon was her first public outing since attending the Trooping of the Colour ceremony last month, where she wore a custom emerald green Andrew Gn coatdress with satin trim and blue jeweled embellishments that matched her sapphire engagement ring and earrings that belonged to the late Princess Diana. She also wore a Cartier shamrock brooch to represent her role as Colonel of the Irish Guards.


Middleton is expected to return to Wimbledon later this week with Prince William to watch more matches and present the trophies to the winners. She will also join him for other royal engagements, such as visiting Scotland and attending Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
