Duchess of Cambridge and dog, Orla, team up to support Prince William at polo match
From Wimbledon to Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the afternoon at the Guards Polo Club in Berkshire, where Prince William took part in a charity polo match.
William and Kate, both 40, looked relaxed as they arrived at the Windsor polo club, fresh from spending the afternoon at Wimbledon on Tuesday, watching Serbia’s Novak Djokovic and Britain's Cameron Norrie go through to the men's singles semi-finals in the tennis tournament.
The mother-of-three arrived at the Guards Polo Club to support her husband Prince William, with their black cocker spaniel Orla in tow, whose name has only recently been revealed.
The Cambridges previously owned another cocker spaniel called Lupo, who was bred from a dog owned by Kate’s parents, but he sadly passed away in November 2020.
The couple were dressed in smart-casual summer attire for the day out, and looked relaxed and comfortable as they greeted guests when they arrived at the club.

Kate accessorised with a pair of wooden Sézane circle earrings and alternated between wearing her Finlay tortoiseshell sunglasses over her eyes and pushed back on top of her head.
