Hmmm, sometimes Sophie looks nicely put together, other times she looks like she needs a stylist helping her. And this is one of the latter times. What she's wearing looks like its for colder weather, although the dress might be made of lightweight fabric, the look and style doesn't suit her at all. The dress has too much black in it, especially with the black long-sleeved jacket. It doesn't suit her coloring.

If the dress shape was slimmer and the jacket white, she might look better. But why isn't she wearing a brighter shade altogether? What Sophie is wearing makes her look dowdy, IMO.

Meghan Markle wore a black wrap dress last year at Wimbledon, but it had a flattering style and looked suitable for hot weather.

That particular day at Wimbledon was not hot, at all. Black and white is a wonderful color combination and not "dowdy" at all, imo. But, if you didn't like what the Countess wore, that is just fine. You have a right to your opinion.

Also, I don't give a toot what a C-list, basic cable actress wears to Wimbledon. Thank you very much.

It's considered bad form to wear bright colors in the Royal Box at Wimbledon. It can distract the players, as the box is highly visible from court. So black and white is a perfect combination.

I have never heard of this. Over the years, many of the Royal ladies have worn pretty summer colours - just look back through the pictures in this forum, and former champions,such as Billie Jean King, regularly sit in the Royal Box wearing bright hues. None of these esteemed folk seem to be aware it is 'bad form'.

The only time I have been to Wimbledon and sat next to the Royal Box all the women were in bright colours - Kate stood out in red of course - but they were all in quite bright colours.

If this is the stated 'form' then it is breached way more often than followed.

A lot of Windsors in the royal box today. William, Kate, Prince and Princess Michael, Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra I spotted. Lord and Lady Frederick are also there.

Does anyone know why Kate has a bow on her dress? Is it something to do with Wimbledon?

Might have something to do with her being Patron, as in this picture the gentleman to her right is wearing a purple and black one.

Here's a lady wearing one as well;

According to photos taken yesterday the Queen is at Windsor. She was seen riding with Louise and Edward yesterday.

She is in Windsor riding;

Somehow I don't think Juan Carlos just turned up on the day, and Felipe may have already known his father was arriving.

I have also spotted the Earl of St. Andrews and his wife and the Duchess of Gloucester in the Royal Box.

I think the bow means a member of the All England Club but I'm not positive. I thought that's what they said on ESPN
