All the Times Kate Middleton Threw Shade — and We Liked It

Jul 2 2014 - 8:10am

The duchess doesn't always wear sunglasses, but when she does, she throws some serious shade. Just check out Kate Middleton in the stands at Wimbledon [1] (and in our favorite Zimmermann dress again [2]!) to see what we mean. Is it just us, or does the Kate Middleton effect get even cooler when she's sporting Ray-Bans?

After reviewing her brief history in sunglasses, we have to argue that Kate's got a cool-girl side you might not have noticed till now. Scroll on to see every time she threw shade — and we loved it.
