Judy Murray Reveals Kate Patronage

The Duchess of Cambridge is at it again -- taking all eyes at Wimbledon away from the game at hand (for a few minutes, at least, when she takes her seat!). Kate brought back a bright favorite from the Australia and New Zealand tour for today's match, a sunny yellow Roksanda Ilincic shift dress.

The piece was custom-made for the Duchess ahead of her 2014 tour with Prince William and George, and is fittingly bright for a day at Wimbledon. She paired the look with Rupert Sanderson heels (the Malory pumps), Soru baroque pearl earrings and the Quincy bag by Victoria Beckham.

In attendance to watch Serena Williams in her semi-final match, Kate met with several people upon arrival. She spoke with ball boys and girls, service personnel and coaches just before meeting the Williams sisters' mother, Oracene Price.

Kate's always been a huge fan of tennis and has attended Wimbledon for years, but she will officially take over as patron of Wimbledon from the Queen in 2017.

Kate's sunny dress was first worn as the royals touched down in Sydney, Australia. It was halfway through their tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2014, and was chosen as a nod to the country's colors. The trip was Prince George's first big public "appearance," and he was hands down the hit of the tour. See below for how Kate styled the dress the first time around.

Hello, sunshine! The royals touch down in Sydney.
When the Cambridge family steps out, Kate has changed into a gorgeous yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress (likely custom-made) and nude pumps.
Kate's sunny yellow dress rivaled the bright sunny day - a bit of a shock for the family that has been in the rain for a week!

FAVORITE PHOTO EVER.

Earlier in the day, William and Kate leave New Zealand with little George. But like, George is NOT having it.

The Duchess was dressed in a skirt suit by New Zealand designer Rebecca Taylor, a look we've seen before -- in 2012. Georgie and Prince William were also in navy blue, a beautifully matching family!
New Zealand Governor General Jerry Mateparae holds Prince George's hand as he leaves with his parents Prince William and Kate on a plane bound for Sydney, Australia from Wellington, New Zealand. (Note: PG is still not amused.)
Kate waves as William holds his son - the first time that he's been held publicly by his father on the tour! Such great photos of the two future Kings.
Earlier in the day as they completed their last engagement in New Zealand, William and Kate visited the Royal New Zealand Police College. Even though it was pouring, many came out to meet the royal couple.
They also met some ADORABLE PUPPIES.
The luckiest little pups ever! Or the luckiest royals ever?! To be determined. 
Royals + Puppies = Love.
