Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Wore Very Different Wimbledon Outfits in 2016

For this fashion editor obsessed with tennis, it's officially the best time of year: the start of Wimbledon. You've got the tennis GOATs (Roger Federer, Serena Williams) on the freshly cut grass, while the fashion GOATs (Anna Wintour, Kate Middleton) will soon be holding court in the well-dressed stands.

Day two of the tournament hasn't seen too much celebrity action yet, so I decided to throw it back to July 2016 when future sisters-in-law Middleton and Meghan Markle both attended the Grand Slam in contrasting outfits. (Fun fact: Markle told Vanity Fair that she met Prince Harry that very same month.) Markle wore an understated black wrap dress, while Middleton went for a cheery, bright yellow Roksanda dress. Scroll down to see what they wore back in 2016 and stay tuned for their 2018 looks.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
