Meaning Of Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon Ribbon


Whether she is sporting Emilia Wickstead, Dolce & Gabbana or Alessandra Rich, Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon always looks big with fashion fans.

Moreover, while most of the Duchess of Cambridge’s tennis-watching outfits feature shimmering pearls or glittering gold jewellery,

She nearly always adds one other accessory: a small purple-and-green bow pinned above her heart.

Wondering what the ribbon represents and when she started wearing it? Keep reading; get the scoop on this great pin.

If you are part of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC), the Duchess of Cambridge is a patron.

You can wear the pin. Otherwise, you’re out of luck.

Fashioned into a bow, the ribbon features the private club’s official colours of “Wimbledon purple” and “Wimbledon green.”

Middleton often honours the tournament’s signature hues with her style, like in 2019,

When she wore a deep green Alexander McQueen frock to take in a match with her sister, Pippa, and sister-in-law, Meghan.

In 2021, she similarly showed up in a bright green Emilia Wickstead dress.

Want your ribbon? According to Forbes, the AELTC only has 375 members, and competition for acceptance is tough; there is a waiting list of more than 1,000 people.

Middleton first sported her pin after she took over the patronage of the AELTC from the Queen in 2016.

Her first Wimbledon appearance after the patron switch was on July 16, 2017,

When she wore a floral-print Catherine Walker dress and the prestigious ribbon,

She joined Prince William to cheer on Roger Federer and Marin Cilic in the men’s singles finals.
