Kate Middleton's wildflower Wimbledon look was the epitome of British summertime chic when she wore it for the Men’s Final back in 2017- and it's stood the test of time.
- The Princess of Wales opted for a subtle wildflower print dress when she attended the Men’s Singles Final at Wimbledon in 2017.
- Florals are as much on-trend as ever and the dreamy detailing on her outfit is something we can’t help thinking about all these years later.
- This royal news comes as exciting Middleton baby news was announced after a “very difficult” start to the year.
Dressing for special occasions is one thing the Royal Family have mastered and when it comes to Wimbledon the Princess of Wales has always pulled out all the stops. From Kate Middleton’s white tiered Wimbledon dress for her first appearance since marrying Prince William to the style first this year when Kate Middleton wore a mint green blazer, she’s had some stand-out looks. It’s hard not to be inspired by some of her throwback outfits and Kate Middleton’s wildflower Wimbledon look is timeless.
Worn as she attended the Men’s Singles Final of the 2017 championships, the Princess of Wales elegant look saw her showcase florals her own way. Kate Middleton’s wildflower Wimbledon look was by one of her go-to designers, Catherine Walker, who was also a firm favorite of the late Princess Diana.

Loveina Floral Bardot Bodycon Dress | $133/£105 |Ted Baker
Recreate Kate Middleton's wildflower Wimbledon look with more vibrant shades this summer with this bodycon option. With a daring split detail, stunning pattern and Bardot neckline, this is an elegant and eye-catching choice for summer events.
It featured capped sleeves and a high boatneck, with a fitted bodice all in white that led down to a flared knee-length skirt. From the hemline up the floral motifs appeared to almost grow up the skirt to the bodice, adding splashes of contrasting colors, with everything from poppies to cornflowers represented.
The pattern is the epitome of British summertime, reflecting countryside meadows where wildflowers bloom together. Accessory-wise Kate kept things paired-back and allowed the dress’ flattering silhouette and floral pattern to shine. She paired it with a white Quincy tote by Victoria Beckham and wore a watch and her engagement and wedding rings.
The Princess of Wales’ hair fell in soft waves around her shoulders and she occasionally put on sunglasses during the match.
Kate Middleton’s wildflower Wimbledon look is definitely one of her show-stoppers and with florals continually on trend in the spring and summer months it remains timeless. It’s also incredibly versatile as you can dress the outfit down with a denim or leather jacket, a crossbody bag and Kate Middleton’s white sneakers or dress it up with a tailored blazer, high heels, a clutch bag and more jewelry.
Either way it’s a beautiful look and the royals are known to be fond of flowers and the countryside and often incorporate this into outfits for official occasions too. So much so that Queen Camilla’s coronation outfit designed by Bruce Oldfield paid tribute to this with not only the flower emblems of the United Kingdom embroidered on it but wildflowers too.
It had daisy chains, celandine, forget-me-nots and scarlet pimpernel which were apparently a nod to her and King Charles’ love of the British countryside and nature. Kate’s wedding dress also had the UK’s floral emblems embroidered on it and Meghan Markle’s veil was embroidered with flowers of the Commonwealth.
Kate Middleton’s wildflower Wimbledon look was a more wearable way to celebrate floral details day-to-day and it’s a look some fans might hope to see again from her - potentially at Wimbledon this year!
