The Duchess of Cambridge sure knows how to keep us on our toes.

In her third appearance at the Wimbledon Tennis Championship, Duchess Catherine presented the 2019 Gentlemen’s Singles Champion Novak Djokovic with his winning trophy – his impressive fifth Wimbledon title.

Of course, it’s not entirely surprising as Kate is the royal patron of The All England Lawn Tennis Club, the organisation responsible for hosting the Wimbledon Championship, however in today’s appearance the Duchess had a very special guest with her, her husband Prince William.

Kate continued her streak of knock-out sartorial choices, opting for a powder blue custom-designed dress which according to Twitter user @GabiK_blogoKate is designed by none other than Kiwi-designer Emilia Wickstead, which she paired with nude ankle-strap pumps, her in2 design pearl drop earrings and finished the look with a bow pinned to her gown in the Wimbledon colours.

Meanwhile Prince William coordinated his outfit with his wife, opting for a powder blue shirt and tie worn with a light grey suit jacket, navy blue trousers and dark brown suede brogues.

Ahead of the final match between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, the royal couple thanked ballboys and girls, staff and referees for their tireless work in making the tournament a success.

And, showing their investment in the match, the royal couple were seen expressing a range of emotions – which included shock, disappointment and jubilation – throughout the intense game.

Kate’s appearance at Sunday’s match marks her third appearance at the tournament this year, attending matches just the day prior where she was accompanied by her sister Pippa Middleton and sister-in-law Duchess Meghan.

For Saturday’s matches the Duchess re-wore a gorgeous green custom-made Dolce & Gabanna dress which featured gold button detailing, accessorising with cream-coloured pumps and Asprey Woodland Oak Leaf earrings.

Meanwhile Kate surprised fans when she turned up unannounced on Day Two of the tennis tournament in a chic white number from Suzannah, and shocked fans even more when she ditched the plush seats of the royal box to attend a match at one of Wimbledon’s outer courts, Court 14.

The Duchess sat beside her two close friends Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavang to watch British wildcard Harriet Dart take on Christina McHale.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the royal mum-of-three.

Alongside her appearances at Wimbledon she also took her three children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, along to a charity polo match on Wednesday to watch Prince William go head-to-head with Prince Harry for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy and to raise funds for charities supported by the princes.

Joined by Duchess Meghan and two-month-old Archie, the event marked the first joint public outing for the four royal cousins, and had us looking forward to seeing more adorable interactions between the royal children in the near future.
