Kate Middleton at Wimbledon

Wimbledon began today, and as well as eating plenty of strawberries, it also means a new outfit surely! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are huge fans of the tennis and have been spotted at Wimbledon a couple of times over the years. 

Last year, Kate, a huge fan of the game, wore what looked to be a triple-decker tennis skirt – in fact, it was a £795 Alice Temperley dress – teamed with LK Bennett nude court shoes.Within half an hour of her appearance, the frock, reduced to £395 in the summer sale, had sold out on the designer's website.

In 2008, Kate also opted for white. 
The year before, Kate wore a beautiful shade of red, which looks very similar to the red Hobbs dress Pippa wore to Wimbledon in 2011.

If you are thinking about heading to Wimbledon this year, or just fancy dressing up like you are going, then here are some Duchess-esq dresses (links to websites in the caption). Remember to team them with a sophisticated tailored jacket (in case it rains) and some nude court shoes or wedge sandals. Maybe we will be lucky enough to see Kate at the tennis and she can spark another shopping frenzy!

Zara Frilly Dress £49.99
Dorothy Perkins Red Crepe Midi Dress £32
Ted Baker Kipp Dress £129

I would wear this black Hobbs dress.

NW3 Birch Tier Dress £139

 It is also available in white.

I would team the dress with the Smyhtson Emily bag (£417 reduced from £695) and a pair of LK Bennett shoes, like the Andie Shoe in black (£110) with a pair of nude sheer tights (so the outfit doesn't look wintery).
Enjoy the tennis ... and the shopping!
