Having married the Prince of Wales in 2005, the Duchess of Cornwall has only made a minimal amount of appearances at the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament. Typically, you can spot her stepson and daughter-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the Royal Box.

With this year’s championships now among us, Royal Central is looking at the outfits the Duchess has worn at Wimbledon throughout the years.

This championship would be seen as a series of test events for the London Summer Olympics the following year.
