The Duchess of Sussex delighted tennis fans by making a surprise appearance at Wimbledon on Thursday afternoon. Meghan made her second public appearance in less than a week as she attended the Championships to support her close friend Serena Williams, who was competing against Kaja Juvan.

The new mum looked characteristically stylish in a black cami, blue jeans and a white pinstripe blazer, paired with black court shoes and sunglasses. She tied her hair back, and wore a sun hat at times throughout the game. But adding the finishing touch was a necklace with a tiny ‘A’ initial – a sweet nod to her baby son, Archie Harrison.

She first attended in 2016, then last year, where she sat alongside sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge. Her modern outfit had a lovely fresh twist - she rocked a  blue striped shirt and cream high-waisted trousers by Ralph Lauren and carried a fabulous bag by Alturzarra.

She accessorised the look with Leonard sunglasses by Illesteva and a Maison Michel hat, although headgear is actually banned from the Royal Box. We're sure the Queen let her off, though! Kate wore a fitted midi dress - a bespoke piece from one of her favourite fashion designers - Jenny Packham, and she carried a Dolce & Gabbana top-handle bag and added her go-to Gianvito Rossi heels. 

 

There isn't an official dress code for Wimbledon, but you can't be seen in ripped denim or sportswear, and don't even think about oversized hats and selfie sticks, which are also banned.
