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 (and in our favorite Zimmermann dress again [1]!) to see what we mean.

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.
