Kate Middleton was a vision as she arrived for the second day of Wimbledon on Tuesday, 4 July.

The 41 year old opted for a mint green double-breasted blazer with white lapels and a pleated white skirt as the highly anticipated event gets underway. The mum-of-three finished the classy look with a pair of pointed white heels.

Kate kept her glossy chocolate coloured locks parted to the side and in loose curls swept over one shoulder.

The Princess of Wales is the patron of the Lawn Tennis Association and regularly attends Wimbledon.

And while she always makes headlines for her stunning sartorial choices, there's one very meaningful accessory you'll find her wearing to the tournament every year – a green and purple bow brooch.

The royal's go-to Wimbledon accessory is a symbol of royal patronage and was gifted to her by the late Queen Elizabeth.

The All England Croquet Club was founded in July 1868 and the Duchess took over the role of patron in 2016 from the Queen.

In 2020, during the pandemic, the Duchess of Cambridge joined Sir Andy Murray for a video call with pupils from Bond Primary School in Mitcham, South London, to mark what would have been Wimbledon finals weekend.

The royal donned a £665 silk dress printed with tennis players, as well as the small purple and green bow pinned to her lapel.

Kate was spotted with the brooch pinned to the left shoulder of her blazer on Tuesday as she was welcomed with applause when she arrived to the Royal Box in Wimbledon’s Centre Court.

Kate was all smiles as she stood under a green and purple umbrella, which perfectly complemented her outfit, as the heavens opened over the courts at Wimbledon.

She arrived on the morning of the tournament’s second day and smiled and greeted two young children before heading to Court 18 to watch British number one Katie Boulter before the rain suspended her match.

In the afternoon, she took her seat in the Royal Box in Centre Court. Those around her stood and applauded as she was led into the stands.

Former champion Roger Federer was also welcomed to the box. He took a seat next to the princess, who was stood clapping as the 41 year old tennis star arrived at the scene of his eight titles for the first time since he retired last September.

Behind them sat British-Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was imprisoned in Iran for six years.

They joined spectators in watching Elena Rybakina, the defending women’s champion, begin her title defence against American Shelby Rogers.
