Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have returned to Wimbledon together, this time to watch the womens’ singles final from the Royal Box.

On Saturday, the sisters-in-law arrived at the tennis tournament for their first joint public outing of 2019 to watch Serena Williams face off against Romania's Simona Halep, after making their first joint appearance together at the sporting event last year.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who arrived first, wore a green Dolce & Gabbana dress with gold buttons and puff sleeves, an outfit she previously wore during a royal tour to Canada with Prince William in 2016.

As a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, the duchess arrived ahead of the match to meet with junior players.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is still on maternity leave, later joined her sister-in-law in the Royal Box above Centre Court, wearing a white shirt and a white pleated skirt with blue accents by Hugo Boss.

Meghan completed the outfit with turquoise bar stud earrings by Jennifer Meyer, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton also joined the pair to watch the match, dressed in a floral dress with ruffled sleeves.

In photos of day 12 of the tournament, the duchesses and Pippa can be seen smiling as they took in the match while seated together.

Earlier in the week, both Kate and Meghan made separate appearances at Wimbledon.

On 2 July, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a white shirt-dress by Suzannah to attend the tournament, while the Duchess of Sussex made an unexpected appearance on 4 July to support her friend Williams, dressed casually in jeans, a white L’Agence blazer and a black top.

The new mum accessorised the outfit with a necklace featuring a dangling “A” for her and Prince Harry’s two-month-old son Archie Harrison.
