I know the round badge is the member's badge, but I'm not sure what the ribbon is.

Hearing Prince Albert is also in the royal box. Has anyone seen a picture of him? He has not been shown on television from what I've seen. Quite the royal turnout!

Also, I don't give a toot what a C-list, basic cable actress wears to Wimbledon. Thank you very much.
Just as you can obviously 'toot' whatever horn you please. The color combination has nothing to do with the dowdiness of how the cut and styling of this sartorial choice looks on Countess Sophie. The ruffly look of the dress at the hem, as well as the length does nothing for the Countess, who actually is very attractive, and has looked quite wonderful and pulled together on many occasions.

IMO, as I said, if the cut of the dress was slimmer, and if there was less black in the dress or conversely if she'd worn a white jacket with the dress as is, with the right silhouette and styling, she might have looked better. Of course, it's not a fashion contest and everyone is entitled to their perceptions and sartorial sensibilities. Still, I think Sophie is very attractive and she looks nicely pulled together quite often, so I would hope for her more consistency in her styling decisions for public appearances.

Does Charlene not have any interest in tennis? I am guessing that's why she doesn't attend?

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


Majesty Magazine replied to my question:

"Purple and green are the colours of the #AELTC, of which the Duchess is now patron. Male members of the club wear a tie in the same colours."

It was good to see the Cambridges and the entire Kent families there. William's suit looked good.

Inside the Royal Box at Wimbledon: Astronauts and V.I.P. Strawberries
WIMBLEDON, England — To be among the few who receive an invitation to watch tennis from one of the 74 seats in the royal box at Wimbledon’s Centre Court is akin to getting an acceptance letter from Hogwarts.

We may assume the Duke of Cambridge is no (honorary) member of the All England Lawn Tennis And Croquet Club, since he sported no club tie?

She always attends the Monte Carlo Open: picture
We may assume she preferred to be at home, having quality time with Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
