Kate Middleton wowed in a green pleated dress at the Wimbledon championships yesterday.


Kate Middleton ended her isolation in style yesterday as she attended the women's final at Wimbledon and dressed for the occasion. 

The Duchess wore a stunning green dress, which had a pleated skirt and a flattering bodice. However, the dress, which is on sale for £815 ($114) is currently sold out, in all sizes.

Kate is a big fan of not just Wimbledon, but also Emilia Wickstead, and has been regularly seen in the designer's dresses. Kate's fans obviously loved her dress too—as it sold out on the website less than a day after she wore it.

The Duchess paired her vibrant dress with Jimmy Choo white leather heels and a blue and white floral face mask.

Currently sold out, but back in stock soon, the Emilia Wickstead dress that Kate wore to the Women's finals at Wimbledon is made from green cloque with darting through the bodice and waist. It opens to a midi-length hem, falling just below the knee.

The Duke and Duchess were joined by other famous faces in the VIP box yesterday—with Lulu and Katherine Jenkins turning up to watch the final. While actor Tom Crusie decided to sit among the crowds, taking selfies with fans as he sat down.

Kate wasn't just watching the match, which saw Ashleigh Barty defeat Karolina Pliskova, but also handed the trophy to the winner.

The Duchess looked delighted to hand Barty her prize, before going on to talk to ball boys and girls and even a little girl in the crowd.
