Family bonding. Duchess KateWith her, she attended her 2022 Wimbledon tennis match. Prince WilliamAs well as her parents. Michael Middleton Carole Middleton.
The 40-year old Duchess was seen in the Royal Box along with her loved ones on Tuesday July 5, for the quarterfinals. The English native wore a Alessandra rich dress with a belt and a polka-dot print for the sporting event. The blue outfit perfectly accented her sapphire engagement band. She matched the dots with white accessories including pearl earrings, small handbag, and black-andwhite slingback heels.
Prince William, 40, complemented his wife’s look with a grey and blue linen suit, light blue shirt and dark tie. His father in law, 73 years old, wore an elegant dark navy suit, while Carole, who is 67 years old, wore a grey gown with a white and peach floral pattern, and a straw bag.
The royal couple — who share children George, 8, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4 — are likely only going to see more of Kate’s parents as they gear up to leave their Kensington Palace home in London for their new home in Windsor, closer to Windsor Castle, which is now Queen Elizabeth II‘s primary residence.
“Kate and William are moving to Windsor to be closer to [Her Majesty] and Carole, who is always on hand to look after the kids when the Cambridges need to travel back and forth from London,” an insider exclusively told Use last month.
The city can be left behind to allow the young royals more freedom outside.
“Charlotte can go horse riding in the open air and George can play football on extensive grounds,” the source added. “Louis loves being close to his great-grandma, and he’s going to take tennis lessons this summer.”
The Middletons attended Wimbledon long before Kate married William, and tennis remains one of the duchess’ passions. She is the patron for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Clubs (AELTC), which organizes Wimbledon. She is also a patron to the Lawn Tennis Association, which promotes tennis in the U.K., as well as SportsAid which provides financial assistance for young athletes.
The duchess doesn’t just watch from the sidelines. She has tennis courts at her and William’s summer home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England, and the St Andrews University alum even showed off her tennis skills in a doubles match with British tennis phenom Emma RaducanuSeptember 2021
“Her forehand was incredible,” Raducanu, 19, said after the match. “I was very impressed. It was a lot of fun to play tennis with the duchess.”
