You know Kate Middleton, right? The impeccably-dressed royal with incredibly shiny hair, who has made a string of High Street outfits sell out minutes after she has worn them? The very same Kate is gearing up for Wimbledon in just a few days and we’re excited because when she’s at those grassy courts, sitting in the Royal Box, she’s always wearing an outfit that we know, once in our wardrobe, will change our lives (short term) for the better.

Remember in 2015 when she wore the red dress from L.K. Bennett? It sold out within hours. Or the floral and butterfly patterned Alexander McQueen shift dress? My favourite was last year’s vibrant yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress, accessorised with a white purse and shades – like a true Wimbledon superfan.

Wimbledon 2017 kicks off next week, and with her new appointment as patron of the club – the Queen stepped down after 64 years last December – it looks like we can expect many more perfect summer formal ensembles and these brilliant Kate-reacting-to-tennis faces to come.
