Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, joined sister-in-law Kate Middleton to watch Meghan's pal Serena Williams in the Wimbledon ladies final.

Watching the tournament from the Royal Box, Meghan looked super stylish in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren, while the Duchess of Cambridge looked beautiful in a white polka dot dress by Jenny Packham.

There aren’t any specific rules to follow when it comes to fashion etiquette at Wimbledon, however, the Royal Box does have a set of guidelines.

Spectators in the Royal Box are expected to dress smartly, with men advised to wear a jacket and tie.

While there are no specific obligations, there is one guideline they are expected to follow in the prestige viewing area – no hats.

However, Meghan risked going against this piece of advice and was seen with a panama hat in her hand when she entered the stands.

    The Duchess of Sussex wasn’t pictured with the accessory actually on her head, but she did keep it on her throughout the tournament.

    It’s likely sister-in-law Kate or one of the event organisers warned Meghan against wearing the hat, as it could block the view of spectators around her.

    Other tennis fans situated elsewhere in the stands are permitted to wear such hats, as long as they’re not constricting the view of those around them.

    Meanwhile, Megan kept the headwear firmly out of sight, holding it in her hand alongside her handbag as she took her seat, and placing it in front of her when she was sat down.
