Wimbledon officially kicked off earlier this week, and so far we've seen a range of famous faces hit the stands to watch some brilliant tennis.

And of course, that means some incredible outfits are on show - and yesterday, Carole Middleton won in the style stakes.

The Duchess of Cambridge's mother wore a stunning, simple white ensemble to the tennis, which she paired with nude heeled sandals and a matching nude handbag.

And the stunning midi dress reminded us of an outfit seen on someone else at Wimbledon the day before - none other than Carole's royal daughter, Catherine!

On day one of the tournament, the Duchess opted for a gorgeous white dress, complete with black belt and buttons, by designer Suzannah, a favourite of the Countess of Wessex too.

And it's easy to see how similar Carole's dress is to her daughters, albeit a little shorter and with less accessories, keeping her look that little bit more casual. So we wonder if the mother and daughter planned to co-ordinate outfits?

Carole's looks was also reminiscent of an outfit she put together for Wimbledon last year too.

She decided on another white, broderie-anglaise design back in 2018, also paired with some more nude heels. It looks like Carole has a winning formula for Wimbledon dressing, and long may it continue!

Carole attended Wimbledon yesterday alongside her husband, Michael. And it was likely a happy chance for the couple to celebrate, as just a few weeks ago, the couple celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary.

Last year, Carole's other daughter Pippa attended Wimbledon multiple times, when she was pregnant with her son Arthur. However, Catherine's younger sister hasn't been spotted at the this year so far yet, but there's every chance she's planning to go along at some point over the next few days.

Another Wimbledon regular who also hasn't been at a game so far this year is Meghan Markle. She attended her first match as a royal with the Duchess of Cambridge last year, but was also a regular visitor in the years prior, to support her good friend Serena Williams.

It's not known if Meghan will attend this year due to being on maternity leave with Archie, but we're keeping our fingers cross.
