Duchess Kate attends opening day of Wimbledon

Google Doodle Celebrates The 140th Anniversary Of Wimbledon

For Kate, watching Wimbledon was a family tradition growing up.

While Kate has been a fixture of the Royal Box for a while now this wasn't always the case. And although the match was stopped twice due to rain, the Duchess was anything but gloomy. She mistakenly asked them about their matches, not realizing they actually played the previous day.

When Google plays tennis, the ball never seems to go out.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore an eye-catching D&G black and white monochrome dress, arriving at the All England Tennis Club on Monday morning alongside Sir Philip Brook. She told them them that their participation "makes the game happen".

"We would like to thank Her Majesty for her long and unwavering service to The Club and The Championships during her time as our Patron", said Sir Phillip. I don't think she will mind me saying that! Or, if we're being honest, watch celebrities watching tennis-specifically Kate Middleton.

It's clear why this lovely frock is so popular; both Duchess Catherine and Dame Helen looked sensational in the simple, beautifully cut dress, which suited their slender frames so well.

The All England Club had been founded exclusively for the goal of croquet in 1869 on four acres of rented meadowland at Worple Road, Wimbledon but croquet was rapidly overtaken by the new pastime of tennis. "Sadly, not the same results".
