Break out the strawberries and cream, everybody: it’s time for a look at the royal jewels we’ve seen at Wimbledon this year!
On Saturday, the Princess of Wales headed to the All England Lawn Tennis Club to attend the women’s final at this year’s Wimbledon tournament. Kate is the patron of the AELTC, a role she inherited from the late Queen Elizabeth II several years ago.
Kate watched Saturday’s final match between Ons Jabeur and Marketa Vondrousova from the royal box, sitting alongside AELTC chairman Ian Hewitt.
She presented trophies to both players after the match. Here, she presents the famed Venus Rosewater Dish to the champion, Marketa Vondrousova.
Kate wore a bright spring green ensemble from Self Portrait for the match, with her AELTC member’s ribbon pinned to her jacket.
She accessorized with a pair of pearl floral button earrings from her jewelry box.
These are the Cavolfiore Pearl Earrings from Cassandra Goad. Each of the seven pearls in the earring is set with a small diamond in yellow gold. The brand’s website explains that the design was inspired by “the clusters of young flower stalks of the cauliflower (cavolfiore)” in a Sicilian market.
Kate has worn these earrings on several previous occasions, most notably for the christening of Prince Louis in July 2018.
She finished off the look with another piece from her jewelry box, a gold and aquamarine enamel torque bangle from Halcyon Days. She wore the same bracelet last year for the women’s final at Wimbledon as well.
Saturday wasn’t Kate’s first visit to the Championships at Wimbledon this year. She also watched matches on July 4, including an appearance in the Royal Box with the Federers to see Shelby Rogers of the United States play Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan.
She also joined Deborah Jevans, the former player who will soon become chairwoman of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club Board, to watch a rainy match between Britain’s Katie Boulter and Australia’s Daria Saville.
For the outing, Kate wore a mint green and white ensemble.
She accessorized with baroque pearl drop earrings from Shyla London (seen recently during her visit to Hope Street) and the Stéphanie Howlite Cuff from Sézane (also worn recently for a charity polo outing).
There have been numerous other royals spotted at Wimbledon this year, too. Queen Camilla made a visit to the Championships with her sister, Annabel Elliot, taking in a match between Ons Jabeur of Tunisia and Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan.
She also met with some of the ball boys and ball girls working during this year’s tournament. She talked about her early experience doing the same job, and royal reporter Rebecca English tracked down the relevant info: Camilla was a ball girl for the Queen’s Club Championships when she was a pupil at Queen’s Gate School.
Camilla kept cool in tennis-appropriate white for her visit to the club.
She wore her sapphire, diamond, ruby, and pearl drop earrings, which come from the late Queen Elizabeth II’s collection, as well as her rigid gold necklace.
Queen Camilla was joined in the royal box by another very important royal guest: Prince Albert II of Monaco.
He was joined at the match by a cousin, Melanie-Antoinette Costello de Massy, granddaughter of the late Princess Antoinette of Monaco. Melanie-Antoinette has followed in the footsteps of her late mother Baroness Elizabeth-Ann de Massy, and is now the President of the Monégasque Tennis Federation. Elizabeth-Ann’s father, Alexandre-Athenase Noghès, was an international tennis player in the 1940s and 1950s.
The Duchess of Gloucester is a keen tennis fan, and she’s made three appearances so far at this year’s tournament. She wore pearls and floral earrings on July 5, plus a ribbon linked to her role as Honorary President of the Lawn Tennis Association.
On July 10, she wore multicolored earrings and a stack of necklaces.
And on Friday, she watched a match with Lady Sarah Chatto, Princess Margaret’s daughter. Birgitte wore the same colorful earrings and stacked necklaces, while Sarah wore a really interesting pair of oval-shaped earrings.
Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, were also at Wimbledon on Friday.
Beatrice was photographed beside a royal cousin, Lady Helen Taylor, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent.
Lady Helen was there with her father, the Duke of Kent, and her son, Columbus Taylor. The Duke served as President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club from 1969 until 2021.
The Duke’s sister-in-law, Princess Michael, was in attendance on Friday as well.
Prince Michael of Kent has been spotted at Wimbledon this year as well, watching a match on July 4 with his daughter, Lady Gabriella Kingston.
Zara and Mike Tindall were at the tournament on July 12…
…and so were her brother, Peter Phillips, and his girlfriend, Lindsay.
Vogue editor (and noted tennis fan) Anna Wintour has also been photographed more than once at Wimbledon this year, always wearing her signature stack of antique paste necklaces. She wore four necklaces—light purple, pink, darker purple, and gold—to watch Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz play Chile’s Nicolas Jarry on July 8.
And on July 10, as she watched Beatriz Haddad Maia of Brazil play Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan, Wintour wore light purple, pink, and blue necklaces, plus a fabulous aquamarine pendant suspended from a long chain with a ribbon detail.
UPDATE: More royals were in the royal box for the gentlemen’s final match at the tournament on Sunday! The Prince and Princess of Wales attended with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The family watched the final match between Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Carlos Alcaraz of Spain from the royal box.
Also in attendance to support Carlos Alcaraz was King Felipe VI of Spain.
Alcaraz joked that King Felipe should come see him play more often, because he’s won both times that the monarch was in attendance. After winning the final match on Sunday, he received the champion’s trophy from the Princess of Wales.
Kate wore yet another shade of green—a flattering, saturated emerald—for Sunday’s match. The dress, from Roland Mouret, had a lovely silhouette, but unfortunately the fabric creased quite a bit.
She accessorized with green onyx earrings from Milina London, plus a Halcyon Days bangle bracelet.
