The Duchess of Cambridge’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, shared in their daughter’s love of tennis as they attended day three of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Carole Middleton, 67, looked incredibly chic and elegant in a patterned paisley jumpsuit for the couple’s day out in SW19.

But it was her necklace that caught our attention.

The party supply company owner, who was accompanied by her husband Michael, 73, seemed to borrow from her daughter the Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe once again with her choice of jewellery for the day out.

The blue topaz necklace is from one of the duchess’ favourite jewellery brands, Kiki McDonough, and one Kate has worn on a number of previous public appearances.

The mother-of-three wore the white gold Eden Blue Topaz and Diamond Flower Necklace in 2017 during a visit to Germany, where she met German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and First Lady Elke Buedenbender and the then-Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel.

The duchess wore the floral £1,500 necklace with a blue Catherine Walker coat dress for the visit.

Whether Carole borrowed the necklace for the third day of Wimbledon on Wednesday or the mother and daughter duo own the same piece, but both have seen the value of adding the jewellery to a smart or casual look.

Carole wore a stunning white, blue and purple linen jumpsuit by Boden that featured an eye-catching paisley print to the South London tennis tournament.

She wore the stylish white jumpsuit with a white denim jacket, and accessorised with cream high heel pumps and a matching handbag, much like the Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to nude heels.

It's not the first time the Middleton matriarch has borrowed sartorial inspiration from her royal daughter.

The mother-of-three recently took a leaf out of her eldest daughter’s style handbook when she borrowed the Duchess of Cambridge’s pink dress at Royal Ascot at the Beginning of June.

Kate, 40, previously wore the gorgeous pink dress on her and Prince William’s royal tour of Scotland in 2021, in particular to meet little Mila Sneddon and her family, whom she’d invited to the Queen’s Edinburgh residence.

The duchess’ eye-catching pink outfit matched the five-year-old's dress, after the youngster had told her it was her favourite colour.
