The Duchess of Cambridge looked stylish in a polka dot dress as she took in the action alongside Prince William at Wimbledon today.

Kate Middleton, 40, cut a fine figure in a £1,515 Alessandra Rich dress as she arrived at SW19 on day nine of the two-week tournament.

Passionate about tennis, Kate is the patron of the Lawn Tennis Association and a regular at Wimbledon. Today is his first league appearance this year.

The royal parents of three looked in high spirits as they took their seats in the Royal Box – which also hosted David Walliams – to watch defending champion Novak Djokovic.

Defending champion Djokovic will kick off the action on center court as he takes on a high-flying Jannik Sinner for a place in the semi-finals, in what should be an exciting match.

Following Djokovic on center court will be third seed Ons Jabeur, who has yet to drop a set en route to the quarter-finals, as she takes on unseeded Marie Bouzkova.

Britain’s Cameron Norrie will be looking to earn a place in the Grand Slam semi-finals for the first time when he takes on David Goffin this afternoon on Court 1. The ninth seed has previously never advanced past third round of a Grand Slam.

Kate, who wore an Alessandra Rich dress she previously wore over Jubilee weekend, was joined at the event by her parents Carole and Michael Middleton, who also received an invite to the Royal Box.

The Duchess’s appearance today comes amid a busy time for the royal, who earlier this month traveled to Cambridgeshire with her husband Prince William.

On their final County Day date at Newmarket Racecourse, Kate was seen delighted as she held a youngster, who wore a pink dress.

Video of the sweet moment shows the mother-of-three smiling and chatting with the baby, who she asked if she could hold on, telling her mum: “I love babies.”

Meanwhile, Prince William was seen loitering nearby, watching his wife cuddle the toddler, and Kate was certainly in no rush to leave when he urged her to move on.

The baby’s mother, Marianne Provoost, who had traveled from the Netherlands for the event, said the Duchess asked to hold her child, saying: “I love babies.”

Her daughter, four-month-old Norah, was returned to her, with Ms Provoost telling the Duchess: “Enjoy your day and enjoy your children.”
