Daily Mail, you need a correction! That's an egregious mis-caption in the photos; that's definitely not Princess Michael of Kent Kate is chatting with!

Glad you spotted that too. For minute there I thought I was losing my mind.

Shame on you Daily Mail.

I am obviously in the minority but I really liked the dress the Duchess wore. It was feminine, lovely color and suited a summerwedding perfectly. I am so relieved she is not another wanna-be runway model whose clothes defines the wearer. Duchess Catherine has her own very personal style and as she refines it she will have both great hits and some misses. This dress was not in my eyes a miss. She looked very lovely.

I thought the pattern was a bit busy but the colours were nice and the dress fit well and had a lovely silhouette. Very summery and appropriate for a wedding and IMO, while it wasn't one of my favourite outfits that Catherine has worn, it was definitely one of the better looking outfits at the wedding.

I thought they were supposed to be in Scotland?
This dress doesn't scream tennis at me. It reminds me more of cricket, which is another of the traditional English summer sports so I suppose it's pretty appropriate.

Myself I think it's rather formal, too formal, to wear a suit and a dress like that to watch tennis.

The Royal Box at Wimbledon is formal. Men wear ties and jackets (sports or suit) and ladies wear smart day wear.

It's nice to see a repeat of this outfit; it's a style that's appropriate to wear as an onlooker at a sporting event.

And I see that the DM removed those pictures misidentifying Princess Michael of Kent. I guess they didn't know who the lady was that they could correct the caption.

Just spotted that Agassi is wearing Jacket and tie.

Here is a link to Wimbledon pix. I dont know how to extract the William and Kate ones but if someone else knows how .....
Lovely ones of a nervous Catherine (because of Murray!) and William greeting Stephi Graf

Ah well I suppose they would have to dress up then.

That's a funny one of Kate with her hand over her face; maybe she didn't like the shot she saw!

My post 751 has a link to Getty and there are lots and lots of pix of Catherine and William in there of today at Wimbledon. They've updated it since I sent the post.

I saw the pictures in the Daily Mail article I posted, they're the ones I was talking about. :)

The early sets of the Murray-Ferrer match were actually really tight. Both went to tie breakers and could've gone either way. Kate's facial expressions during the match tell you all about how tense it was at times.

Kate seems to have re-ignited an interest in tennis in William. I don't remember the last time he made an appearance at Wimbledon before last year; probably when Diana was alive.

I read somewhere that they play very competitive games of tennis with each other, so therein lies William's interest in Wimbledon, I suppose. My mom DVR'd some tennis highlights of Will and Kate for me at the tennis match; mind you, my mom's 89, handles technology like a pro and still has an avid interest in tennis.
