Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, or even her daughter, Princess Charlotte, are typically the ones creating news and generating discussion when it comes to royal attire. Prince George, her oldest child, on the other hand? Not really. Twitter, on the other hand, erupted with comments over the 8-year-clothing old’s during this year’s Wimbledon.
On Sunday, July 10, George made his official tennis tournament debut, sitting with his parents in the royal box at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to watch the men’s final between the reigning champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia and No. 40-ranked Nick Kyrgios of Australia.
According to Kate, it was “George’s treat,” and he was rooting for Djokovic, according to Prince William, who spoke to The Mirror. Everything appeared to be normal, but what many people found surprising was that George was dressed in a full navy suit and tie on a day with temperatures that reached 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius).
To be fair, there is a fairly strict dress code for the royal boxes: “Dress is smart, suits/jacket and tie, etc.,” according to the Wimbledon website. Hats tend to block the view of those seating behind women, thus they are urged not to wear them. However, many worried onlookers felt it was simply too hot for a child to be out in the sun for hours in a suit nonetheless, and they weren’t shy about expressing their concerns on Twitter.

It cannot be overstated how uncomfortable folks found the day’s high temperature. Even a supporter who called George’s attire a “beautiful little suit” questioned whether he was “overheating.” A concerned viewer offered the advice, “At least let him take the jacket off FFS,” in response.
There were several suggestions for what George should be wearing instead, but they weren’t precisely in line with royal box procedure. Most people wanted him to wear a T-shirt and recommended other kid-friendly themes like Spider-Man or Minions. Others said he might look “clever” while also being more at ease. Someone tweeted, in part, “Couldn’t they have allowed him to wear a polo shirt or something?”
George did make it through the more than three-hour match, hot as it was. The tennis pro met briefly with the three Cambridges inside the All England Club after Djokovic won and was presented with the championship trophy by none other than Kate.
Hopefully, they were able to make use of the much-needed air conditioning. The now seven-time Wimbledon champion had a chance to interact with George, and Djokovic even allowed him to handle the renowned pineapple-topped trophy.
According to Express, Kate told Djokovic, “The level of tennis and the way you played was incredible and for George to watch.” He had never been here before. He’s 8.” The duchess also revealed that all three Cambridge children are tennis players, so perhaps George will be eager to return next year regardless of how warm the weather is.
