I like the choice of dress and the sandals - no nude shoes, halleluja!
Trimmed hair looks very nice!

I like the dress, but I hate the new hairstyle! She has such lovely thick glamorous hair with so many possibilities. This is too short for updos and she looks like 45 instead of 35 in my opinion. I miss the 2011/2012 hair, I loved it and I still admire those beautiful curls and the half-up-half-down without the part like she wears it lately. I can't wait to see her back with long hair. Thankfully no fringe! That would have been even more horrible.

Kate looks lovely, though I'm usually not keen on polka dots.
Her hair is fine, it's much healthier for the hair to have it trimmed occasionally.

I love the dress and sandals and most of all I love her shorter hairstyle, it makes wonders for her. She looks fantastic.

Love the square neckline on the dress. It's a good, summery outfit.

I like the hair cut.

i may be the only one, but i dislike this polka dots dress pattern... :(
the hair looks okay, but not as nice as before. maybe i just need to get used to it!

i guess given the excellent appearances before of kate at wimbledon i had high expectations! some throwbacks:

in 2014, a recycled Johnathan saunders dress
a recycled roksanda yellow and white dress
that beautiful mcqueen dress
in 2015, in a deep red LK bennett dress
in 2011, in a cute white dress
with pippa, in a cream dress and white jacket

I like the dress, especially the square neckline, but for D+G I would expect better quality. The polka dots do not match up at the waist, and there does not appear to be a belt throwing it off. I wonder if she had it altered to make the waist higher, and that is the reason the dots are not matching up. The longer length is very flattering and appropriate, and I like the bag & sandals also.

Her hair cut looks nice, although I suspect it is more a matter of removing the longer extensions and this is her actual hair length. They can always be added back if needed for an updo for a tiara so no worries there.

I agree that she is looking older than her 35 years. I think more highlights around her face would help.

Catherine is really on a role. Love her hair and the polka dot dress looks perfect for a day at the tennis.

As usual though, it's her beautiful smile that's her best accessory. I love the photo of her greeting The Duke of Kent.

I saw what you were talking about also in the the dots don't match up, so I am wondering is there some kind of pleat in the front that would make it not match up? I also love the neckline and the length on the sleeves, with the length of the dress is just perfect.

I so love this hair cut, not the stringy hair as before and this so up to date on her. Dress, hair, make-up, shoes and purse..........perfect all around. I want that purse, wonder who makes it...simply gorgeous to carry about when out.

Love the hair, so much better and the shoes! In the model of the dress, the neckline is round, not square and the dots go all the way down in the front panel and are not lined up the rest of the way around. Those are big box pleats on the dress which then gives it a nice full skirt. I am trying to figure out how they altered it, maybe just shortened it at the waist. A belt would have helped take attention away from it.

The sandals are really lovely but I hope to never see this dress again. I normally love a polka dot print, but there is something incredibly cheesy about a polka dot dress.

And yes to a trim of the hair, but this length looks much better and sleek when it's kept straight.

I am not a fan of polka dots, but would have liked the outfit better if....
#1 - the dress were longer, maybe midi length
#2 - she would have added a wide black belt
Her hair is always nice, but would have enjoyed seeing it in a high ponytail.

I love this look! I think the polka dots are really fun and I think her hair is a nice change! I prefer it longer but I like seeing her mix up her look a bit

I read the purse is by Victoria Beckham.

The Duchess gets a thumbs-up from me! The shorter hair and the real handbag are a wonderful upgrade for her, and the dress is pretty and summery. Lovely little sandals, too.
