Duchess Of Cambridge Wears Yellow 'Banana Dress' To Wimbledon 2016

She lit up the women's semi-finals.

The Duchess of Cambridge proved she’s the reigning queen of what-to-wear-at-Wimbledon when she attended the women’s semi-finals on Thursday 7 July.

To watch Serena Williams beat Elena Vesnina on the tennis court, the Duchess donned a sunny Roksanda dress, pearl earrings by Soru Jewellery, heels by Rupert Sanderson and her trusty Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses.


This isn’t the first time the Duchess has been spotted in the yellow midi-dress, which made its debut in 2014 during her Royal Tour of Australia.

Designer Roksanda Ilincic, who runs the eponymous brand Roksanda, custom-made the dress for the Duchess by reversing the colours on her classic Ryedale dress (priced at £950, and sadly sold out).

The dress is affectionally known by fans as the ‘banana dress’.

When the the Duchess arrived in Sydney wearing the design, she reportedly told a woman complementing her outfit: “William said I look like a banana”.
