The Royal Ladies wowed the crowds at the Wimbledon Tennis Championship, which was also their first time representing the Royal Family together.

Their first joint outing was done during the Ladies’ Singles Final at the Wimbledon Championships on Saturday, July 14, 2018, where they were able to watch the action upclose.

Throughout the day, The Duchesses of Sussex and Cambridge were spotted smiling and chatting, and photos of the event ended up posted on Kensington Palace's Twitter page.

The Wimbledon Championship is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and it has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, since 1877 under Royal Patronage.

Kate and Meghan were as elegant as ever. Meghan wore a summery blue-and-white long-sleeved striped shirt by Ralph Lauren, paired with elegant wide-leg cream pants, while Kate wore a short-sleeved white and taupe frock and an asymmetrical bow at the neckline.

Before the match, Meghan and Kate were introduced to former female Wimbledon champions and took some time to chat with some of the ball girls and boys.

After that, the Duchesses took their seats in the royal box to cheer on the players, Angelique Kerber and Serena Williams, and to partake of another time-honored Wimbledon tradition: Strawberries and cream

Duchess Meghan might have had a hard time being impartial considering that she is a close friend of Serena Williams whom she met at the 2010 Super Bowl in Miami.

This is not the first time that Williams and Kerber have faced each other in the finals at Wimbledon, and in 2016 Williams took the prize.

An avid tennis fan, the Duchess of Sussex has been attending Wimbledon for many years, long before she was introduced to Prince Harry on a blind date in 2016. But now as a member of the Royal Family, she has a reserved seat at the Royal Box.
