Meghan Markle and Duchess Kate to have a girls’ day out at Wimbledon

By Meaghan Wray

Meghan Markle and Kate are gearing up for a duchess date! The royal duo will be making a stylish appearance at Wimbledon on Saturday (July 14) to watch the Ladies’ Singles Final. This exciting occasion marks the first time the sisters-in-law will step out together without their husbands, and royal watchers can’t wait.

It’s been two years since the new Duchess of Sussex made her first appearance at the tennis championship. Just like in 2016, Meghan will be there to cheer on one of her best friends, Serena Williams, as she competes for the win against Germany’s Angelique Kerber. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had spots in the stands at last year’s event. Given William and Kate’s close relationship to tennis player Roger Federer , who will be on the court before Serena, it makes sense that the women would seize this opportunity for a girls’ day out!

The 36-year-old members of the Royal Family will hopefully have quite a few things to chat about, given that they are both keen about being active. Though Duchess Kate is definitely on the sportier side – she is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, after all – they will certainly be able to bond over their shared love of watching sports.

And we’re hoping their mutual interest in fashion will be on display, too! Two years ago, Meghan dazzled for her first appearance, wearing a boyfriend-style white button-up shirt paired with white jeans and a Panama hat. She then made another standout appearance in a black wrap dress with a high slit (though she’s sure to not repeat these styles this year!). Kate, on the other hand, has typically stuck to dresses, looking super chic in a polka dot Dolce & Gabbana number for one visit, and on another, a summery white floral dress.
