When it comes to summer essentials, we could truly write an entire list of necessities. Trendy outfit pieces, the perfect sandal, accessories — you name it, we’ve definitely thought of it. But there’s one must-have item we absolutely need during this season, and Kate Middleton’s arguably been wearing the most stylish pair. The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her signature sunglasses during the recent Wimbledon tennis tournament, and we found designer dupes starting as low as $45.

Before we dive into the fabulous shades we found, courtesy of Nordstrom, let’s take a look back at Kate’s designer frames. Earlier this month, the Duchess of Cambridge wore her sunglasses during her appearances at the 2022 Wimbledon tennis tournament. Kate’s shades are designed by Finlay, and she wore the classic Henrietta style.
