Kate wows in white Temperley London Moriah dress at Wimbledon

During the Wimbledon Championships in 2011, Kate and William took to their seats and watched Andy Murray play tennis.  The royal couple sat in the Royal Box on Centre Court.

Kate has watched the tennis at Wimbledon a number of times; she and sister Pippa are both big fans of the game.

For the tennis, Kate wore a gorgeous white tiered dress by Temperley London.  The dress is called the “Moraiah”.

The dress features three layers of floaty ruffles, a row half circles on the straps and on the back.

Temperley London describe Kate’s white cocktail dress as:

“a perennial, classic waist-nipped shape with a sexy, structured bodice, hand-embroidered straps and a tiered skirt.”

The “Moraiah Dress”  costed £477, reduced down from £795 (at the time Kate wore it, back in 2011).

Susan from What Kate Wore described the dress as offering a little bit of “tennis dress styling”, adding that the Moraiah is “a sort of dressier take on a tennis dress”.

Temperley London also website stocked the dress in black too:

The company restocked the dress a couple of times, due to its popularity.  Sadly, it is no longer for sale on Temperley London’s website.

Kate accessorised her dress with a brown jacket (which, understandably in this heat, she did not wear and which has not been IDd yet) and matching nude shoes (which I assume are her L.K. Bennett Sledges) and a clutch bag.

Kate carried her Stuart Weitzman ‘Muse’ clutch bag in nude. This style is also known as the “Raz” in the USA.

Finally, eagle-eye Kate fans will have noticed the Duchess wearing a charm bracelet. Facebook friend Ayvee solved the bracelet mystery on Facebook, explaining the charm Catherine’s cipher on one side, and Camilla’s cipher on the other. As such, we can assume this charm bracelet was a gift to Kate from Camilla.

  1. […] afternoon Kate gained a lot of attention (and a round of applause) after making a surprise appearance with Price William at Wimbledon […]

  2. […] Temperley London are allowing Kate fans to register their interest for the Moraiah dress; the cocktail dress with the tiered skirt and hand embroidered straps that Kate chose to wear to the Wimbledon game yesterday. […]

  3. […] Kate’s shirt, as the lovely Misty informed us, is by another of Kate’s favourite designers, Alice Temperley.  Temperley was the designer responsible for sister Pippa Middleton’s green dress from the evening of the Royal Wedding, plus Kate’s dress at Wimbledon. […]
