In 2022, Prince George made his Wimbledon debut at the men’s finals, along his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton. This year, it is all about Princess Charlotte and the young royal’s first-time attendance. The little royals enjoyed front row seats to watch Novak Djokovic take on Carlos Alcaraz in a final match.
Kate was in attendance the day before, for the women’s finals, where Markéta Vondroušová claimed the winning title. The Princess of Wales opted for back-to-back green looks in honour of the tennis tournament’s trademark grass courts. However, some were convinced dress was inspire by tennis balls.
Fastened to Middleton’s lapel was a purple bowtie brooch. As a patron of the All England Tennis and Croquet Club, she is entitled to sport the item. She has worn it at previous tournaments over the years.
