More from the Garden Island:
LONDON The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka Prince William and his wife Kate, surprised fans at the Olympic Games tennis tournament at Wimbledon by sitting in the cheap seats on Thursday.
The royal pair… decided to shun the VIP seating available to them in favor of a regular spot in the stands while watching Great Britain’s Andy Murray play Nicolas Almagro of Spain.
William and Kate would have been eligible to sit in Center Court’s Royal Box, which is reserved for special visitors to the All England Club. But as Murray was playing his quarterfinal on Court One, they instead opted for a normal pair of seats to the left of the players’ box.
The couple was having fun this afternoon, taking part in a “Mexican Wave” several times, a practice known simply as “the wave” in the USA.
The dress is officially called the “Ridley Stretch Cady Dress” on the Stella McCartney site, it is now sold out at every retailer we have checked.
This photo better shows Kate’s dress today.
She also repeated her pearl stud earrings…
Along with her navy suede Muse clutch from Russell & Bromley and her Givenchy sunglasses. Kate also repeated her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon (US name)/Coco Pop shoes.
Andy Murray won his match, moving on to the semi-final round.
William and Kate also watched the first set of the Djokovic-Tsonga match before heading over to the Velodrome to watch cycling.
The Duchess opted for a more casual, switching into her Team GB duds, and putting her hair up.
Once again the couple seemed to be enjoying themselves and all of the Olympic excitement, they were ecstatic when the Team GB won the men’s team sprint, this photo via See75 on Twitter.

Multiple reports say the two spoke about shoes, more from Victoria Murphy’s story in the Mirror:
Kate immediately congratulated Adlington on her bronze medal in the 400m freestyle this week – but the swimmer, known for her love of shoes, had other things on her mind.
She admired Kate’s navy wedges, telling her: I love your shoes.
Here are the shoes under discussion.
That is the Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon in ‘Nice Blue Suede,’ the company has now made them available to US shoppers, they are on the website for $375. (UK shoppers can find them at Russell & Bromley.)
