The Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance at the Wimbledon championships on Friday, looking beautiful in a navy blue polka-dot look.

Tennis fan Kate was accompanied by All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) chief executive Sally Bolton and committee member Tim Henman during her visit, as she watched a match on one of the Outer Courts before visiting one of the kitchens on the grounds.

Jewellery-wise, she wore her go-to Simone Rocha pearl earrings, a Spells of Love satellite necklace layered with her Daniella Draper gold Midnight Moon necklace. 

Kate completed her look with a pair of white high heel shoes and Mulberry's 'Amberley' bag in white - a new designer purchase for the Duchess.

Many fans may even see similarities between Kate's latest look and that of the late Princess Diana, who of course would have celebrated her 60th birthday on Thursday. The Princess of Wales was fond of polka dots, just like her daughter-in-law, and often wore them to sporting events too.
