Kate Middleton and Prince William (Founders, Crotch Clutching United) attended the final day of Wimbledon yesterday, July 10, to watch Andy Murray win the men’s final.
After watching the tennis match, William and Kate stopped to talk to Murray about his victory. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge congratulated Murray on his victory before asking about his daughter, Sophia, who was born in February.
“William joked: ‘I don’t know how you managed that with no sleep….How’s your daughter doing is she alright?’
“Murray responded with a smile: ‘Yeah she’s great yeah, she’s really good at sleeping. The last three nights she slept through.’ William said it must have been ‘a good omen.’
“However, when Murray politely asked about the royal children, Kate responded: ‘No, today is about you…. you played so well, well done.'”
You can kind of hear the exchange in the video below. I think it’s nice that Kate didn’t make that interaction about her kids and instead put the focus back on Murray, where it belonged.

I want to take a moment to talk about William’s fashion, because William finally realized that jackets come in colors other than blue. William wore a grey coat with a bit of blue striping over blue pants. If he had just worn the pants to match the jacket, he would have looked amazing.
As for Kate, she wore a new dress by her favorite label, Alexander McQueen. Kate wore a bespoke version of the “Obsession-Print Short-Sleeve Silk Dress, Ivory” (the non-bespoke version retails for $2,995). Kate’s dress is longer and doesn’t have the horizontal row of pattern at the waist.
I’m not super sold on this dress, but, eh, it’s fine. McQueen is so overpriced, though.
I like seeing Kate bring back her Brora Gold Charm Earrings (£39.00) which she debuted in Bhutan. Kate debuted so many pieces during the India/Bhutan tour that we’ll probably never see again, so it’s nice to see her repeat something from that tour.
Kate also carried her LK Bennett “Natalie” clutch and wore her Cartier watch.
Here are some Kate Faces.
And here’s your men’s champion.
And here’s Andy Murray’s wife, Kim (wearing a Jenny Packham dress), going nuts over his win.
And because I’m a huge fan of Sherlock and they’re finally shooting season four (yay!), here’s Benedict Cumberbatch (who’s totally doing it for me with those dark curls and glasses) and his wife, Sophie Hunter. Sophie wore the “Etta” dress from Temperley London.
