On July 10th 2016, William and Kate watched the Wimbledon final between Andy Murray and Milos Raonic.
Murray won, making this his second Wimbledon title.
After winning, Murray met and spoke with the royal couple:
William and Kate said congratulations and remarked that it was “great game to watch”.
Kate told Andy he can “relax a bit now” it’s all over.
Kate chose a new dress by a favourite designer for this afternoon’s Wimbledon final. She chose a bespoke Alexander McQueen dress featuring the company’s “Obsession” print.
Below, we show a shorter ready-to-wear version of the dress, currently available at Bergdorf Goodman:
The Obsession-print dress is made from ivory silk. It features short sleeves, a jewelled neckline, a nipped-in waist and an A-line skirt. The dress costs $2,995 USD at Bergdorf Goodman (that’s approximately £2,300 at today’s exchange rate).
Here’s a look at the back of the dress:
Here’s a look at the dress in black from McQueens Pre AW 2016 collection. This dress isn’t for sale yet, the image came from Alexander McQueen’s Instagram account:
I think it’s the same length as Kate’s dress. It appears to hit slightly below the knee.
McQueen says the dress’s “soft shoulders and military lines nod to the ’40s silhouette”.
The Obsession print features throughout McQueen’s Pre AW16 ready-to-wear collection. It’s an intricate print showcasing “charms and heirlooms” and other “precious artefacts gathered by an obsessive female collector.”
Here’s a look at one of Alexander McQueen’s Obsession print bags from the season:
Lots of curious treasures can be found in the print, including Faberge eggs, lipsticks, butterflies, ballerina dolls, crystals, skulls heads and more. Here’s a closer look at the print:
Kate paired the McQueen dress with a pair of gold coloured earrings. They’re Brora’s Gold Charm Earrings. You may remember she first wore them in Bhutan, earlier this year?
The earrings are made from 22-carat gold plated brass. They cost £39.
Kate’s clutch bag is an old favourite. It’s the L.K. Bennett Natalie in raffia. She’s carried it regularly since 2011.
