For her appearances in the Wimbledon royal box this year, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has leaned into her summer wardrobe fail-safes.

During the men’s quarterfinal, the All England Tennis Club patron turned to her go-to designer Alessandra Rich in an azure polka-dot dress and the brand’s Fab slingbacks, before rewearing a lemon Roksanda design to watch Elena Rybakina’s history-making women’s singles win. Shielding her from the July sun during the tournament? Sunglasses courtesy of Finlay & Co. and a sunhat via LK Bennett.

During her final outing to SW19 for the men’s singles final, Kate Middleton once again kept it classic in another polka-dot Alessandra Rich creation, albeit one with a Chelsea collar and puff sleeves. This is just the latest in a string of high-profile occasions where the duchess has turned to Diana, Princess of Wales’s signatures in a kitschy print and ’80s-style silhouette. See Kate’s outfits for the memorial service for the Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey earlier this year and her turn at Royal Ascot back in June.

Exaggerated faux-pearl buttons upped the ’80s feel of the duchess’s dress.

Seated next to the duchess in the royal box as Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic faced off on Centre Court? Both the Duke of Cambridge and Prince George, marking the latter’s Wimbledon debut. While the eight-year-old royal proved more composed than Prince Louis during this year’s Trooping of the Colour, it’s clear George takes after the duchess when it comes to enthusiastic spectatorship. He was cheering, grimacing, and watching from behind his hands during particularly tense moments. Cue the memes.
