Kate Middleton has always been a huge fan of Wimbledon, and so we weren't surprised at all to see her out and about for the special tennis event! The royal wore a chic white dress with a black buttons, a custom design from Marylebone boutique Suzannah, which she accessorised with an Alexander McQueen belt.

Walking down to her seat in court 14 to watch Harriet Dart vs Christina McHale, Kate stole the show, matching her look with a pair of black heels and with her hair held back with a pair of chic sunglasses on her forehead. There isn't an official dress code for Wimbledon, but you can't be seen rocking ripped denim or sportswear, so Kate has totally followed all the style rules!

Kate is such a fan of the tennis, last year she visited a tennis training session at a primary school in Mitcham, south London, and joked at the time how she was less "sporty" now she has children. At the time, she said: "I love tennis, I think it's a great sport. I was really sporty when I was little, less so now that I've got lots of babies." Kate has been a regular guest at Wimbledon since making her first visit as a member of the royal family in 2011.
