Carole Middleton serves at Wimbledon wearing accessories from her daughters Pippa and Kate Middleton

The Princess of Wales’ absence from Wimbledon this year due to her cancer treatment was felt by both the royal family and tennis fans.

As patrons of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, the royal family’s elegant presence in the Royal Box of Centre Court has become synonymous with the championships.

While the 42-year-old Princess is yet to make her debut at this year’s Grand Slam tennis tournament, her mother Carole Middleton returned to the world-famous grass court just days after making a glamorous appearance in the exclusive Royal Box in her first Wimbledon appearance since 2022.

Carole’s dress was fun and pretty, decorated with lime green flowers that resembled tennis balls.

Wearing a long-sleeved, V-necked dress with a fitted waist, the mother of three paired her statement dress with a contrasting plaid blazer and low-heeled ‘Josie’ saddle suede pumps from Emmy London.

Carole wore a pair of Zanzan sunglasses

According to royal style watchers @royalfashionpolice On Instagram, Carole was wearing sunglasses that her youngest daughter Pippa actually got from Zanzan.

Pippa Middleton attended Wimbledon in 2019 wearing the It-girl brand’s £210 ‘Apeche’ sunglasses, which she teamed with a butter yellow polka dot dress as she attended with husband James Matthews.

Look at her mother, take her daughter

Sunglasses aren’t the only accessory Carole borrows from her daughters. The Middleton matriarch’s shoes also feature in Kate’s wardrobe – but in a different tone.

The Princess has worn her ‘Josie’ heels from Emmy London many times and has worn the navy suede heels at least 15 times since she first wore them in 2019.

The brand describes the £495 shoes as “an elegant pointed-toe shoe with a modern block heel”. And thanks to a “luxurious cushioned insole”, these gorgeous shoes are incredibly comfortable, making them popular with royal ladies who spend several hours a day on their feet.
