Kate Middleton Makes an Unexpected Appearance at Wimbledon
Kate Middleton seated herself just off the smooth grassy lawns of Wimbledon as she arrived way earlier than expected for Day 2 of the major tennis tournament.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore traditional white as preferred by both players and watchers of the most popular annual tennis event which takes place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
She arrived early for the second day of Wimbledon in order to catch British hopeful Harriet Dart play against American Christina McHale. Photos are found below.
Later on, the duchess would watch world number 2 Roger Federer play, then 2018 champion Angelique Kerber defend her title. Top guns Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams are also set to play on Tuesday.
True to form, Middleton looked elegant wearing a white dress that buttoned down almost the entire length with black buttons. A matching black belt hugged her slim waist and was accompanied by a brooch on her large collar.
The fashion-forward royal accessorized with a pair of sunglasses as she held onto a brown and black bag. She wore black pumps to complete her Wimbledon look.
According to Mirror, Middleton was seated between former tennis players Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong. Dart eventually won her match against McHale in three sets.
Middleton is a regular at the Wimbledon tournament, showing up each year in some sort of airy attire. Last year, she even interacted with kids who were undergoing a training session as part of an outreach program.
The duchess revealed that though she loves the sport of tennis and used to play as a girl, she's now unable to enjoy as much time on the court due to her three children.

Just a week before Wimbledon 2019, Middleton again joined the children when she attended an event of the Royal Photographic Society. The Queen just recently appointed the duchess as patron of the institution.
Dressing in another summery ensemble, Middleton showed up wearing a green and brown paisley print dress with short, flowy sleeves. Her interest in photography made her the perfect fit for the new role.
