Even the Royal family enjoys watching the action-packed matches at Wimbledon, and two of the Royal women headed down to watch the women’s final together live. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, sat in the Royal Box for the big match between tennis superstars Serena Williams and Simona Halep. As the caption in the Instagram photo explains, the duo shared the Royal Box with the Duke of Kent as well as tennis champions Martina Navratilova and Virginia Wade.
Markle kept her outfit fairly simple for the match, and opted to wear a crisp white shirt paired with a pleated white skirt that had dark blue and black printed details. She added a pair of classic sunglasses to complete the look and slicked her hair back in a low ponytail.
While Markle looked gorgeous, Middleton truly stunned in a vibrant green dress. The dress was fairly conservative, with delicate silver buttons that went up the front of the frock and a sleeve detail that added a bit of volume and visual interest. The shade was what had many people buzzing, as the emerald green hue looked incredible with Middleton’s skin tone and chestnut brown hair. Middleton left the sunglasses behind for her day at Wimbledon and wore her hair down in her signature loose curls while she rocked a pair of simple earrings to accessorize.
