Here’s a quick post on Kate Middleton‘s second Wimbledon engagement of the year. She and Prince William attended the Men’s Final today, July 16, to watch Roger Federer win his 8th Wimbledon championship.
There is not a ton of information or interesting photos, so this post is going to be pretty light. William and Kate, as Patron of Wimbledon, watched the Men’s Final match between Federer and Marin Čilić, which Federer won. After the game, the royal couple congratulated Federer on his win.
Below is a brief video of William and Kate giving Federer kisses and handshakes. Kate says in the video: “Congratulations. Very, very well played. [inaudible].”

As Patron, Kate got to nominate a charity to be involved in the Men’s Final coin toss. She picked Place2Be, of which she is Patron. Place2Be picked 11-year-old Luca Schmetzer to be involved, and he got a tour of the facility and got to help set up stuff before being involved in the coin toss.
William and Kate also watched the mixed doubles final, which Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis won.
Kate wore a Catherine Walker dress in white with a floral pattern on the full skirt. Kate also wore her Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven earrings, and a nude sandal with a block heel. Kate wore her Cartier watch and carried her Victoria Beckham Quincy bag. Kate also sported a purple and green bow pin which is worn by female members of the All England Club (male members get a tie).
Additionally, the Telegraph is reporting that William, Kate, and Prince Harry attended Camilla’s 70th birthday party at Highgrove yesterday, July 15.
The Cambridges’ tour starts tomorrow which will be exhausting. I will hopefully have my post about Victoria’s 40th up soon.
