Wimbledon 2022 is here, and many are looking forward to the Duchess of Cambridge taking over the Duke of Kent’s responsibilities. After five decades as president of Wimbledon, the Duke passed the role onto the Duchess, who is already the patron of Wimbledon’s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC).
With her new role, we will likely see a lot more of the Duchess at the annual championships. With it now Wimbledon season, Royal Central is looking at the Duchess’s Wimbledon fashion throughout the years in honour of this year’s championships.

In 2012, the Duchess attended the tennis event multiple days, including a match with her sister, Pippa.
After missing the previous year because she was heavily pregnant with Prince George at the time, the Duchess joined her husband at the 2014 championships.
Just months after the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Meghan famously joined her new sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, at the 2018 Wimbledon championships. The Duchess of Cambridge would also be seen with her husband at another match.
The Duchess would be seen attending several days of play at the 2021 championships. Notably, she would be present as the Duke of Kent presented his final trophy at Wimbledon before retiring as President of the All England Lawn Tennis Association – an association, the Kents, have held with Wimbledon for more than five decades.
