You know what's rather irritating?! Showing up for one match and then disappearing.

The Mixed Doubles is currently on and there is a British pair in the final and the Royal box is empty. There is nobody in there.

It would be nice to see support for others not just the stars.

Quick refreshments and break and all the royals are back out. Duke of Kent obviously stays as he presents the trophies but glad to see the rest are also there bar Princess Alexandra her seat is currently occupied by Lady Helen Taylor.

Doubles matches are frequently the most entertaining matches of the tournament and mixed doubles is particularly good.

BBC footage showed Andy being called called back to speak to the Duchess of Gloucester just after his chat with William and Kate. The Duchess is the greatest British tennis supporter and does a lot with the LTA and a constant presence at Davis Cup games.

From Instagram I can see Zenouska Mowatt is also at Wimbledon today. She posted about meeting Bradley Cooper.

I agree. It was really classy of the Royals to stay and watch the Mixed finals. On the other other hand, I didn't see PM Cameron or Mr. Cumberbatch sticking around, at least they weren't shown on tv, that is. You can tell who the real tennis fans are.

Btw, am I the only one who thought Watson's partner Kontinen looks a lot like Pippa's ex-boyfriend J.J. Jardine- Patterson?

Royals at Wimbledon

For once I think the comments about the Royal Box are a little harsh. Look at the whole of Centre Court and it briefly emptied while people had a comfort break and got refreshments. The Royal Box was pretty full once the mixed doubles had got going.
As for the PM - well I don't know if he got back to the doubles but I guess he is quite a busy man and I for one was pleased to see he came to Wimbledon - do the US or French presidents go to the Grand Slam events in their countries?


A good turn out from the British royals to see Andy Murray win his second Wimbledon title (Well done to him!)

I don't think she was there i got the impression from the video that it was him saying hello to her via video as you can see Lady Freddie Windsor asking him to do so in it

Lady Freddie is an actress so she may know Bradley a little bit.

The Duchess of Cambridge makes her debut as the new patron of the All England Club.

Appointing Kate to this post is 'a match made in Heaven'. Unlike the Queen she is an avid tennis fan.

The Duchess looks older in those pictures than her true age. Maybe it is the makeup (or lack thereof) ?

I certainly don't think the Duchess looks old. She's not an ingenue, she's 35 years old. Maybe she looks normal and actresses and such have photos airbrushed to a not normal appearance.

I agree. If anything the hair cut made her look a bit younger, at least fresher. Nice change, one she should keep up.

But the Duke of Kent will still present the winners' trophies? Or will Duchess Kate take over that role too?

The Duke of Kent most likely will continue until he retires

While Kate is patron, taking over from the queen, the Duke is president. And has been in his capacity as president, been presenting the award. He took over as president from his mother. Marina was for 26 years.

The queen may not be big on tennis, but many of the older royals are. The Duke and duchess both attend. The Duchess of Gloucester is also a lawn tennis patron and often at foreign tennis events as well.


According to the cc, the Duke of Kent will be attending most days. Including the women and men's finals which gives credence that he will continue handing out.

The Duchess of Kent used to present the ladies champion trophy until she withdrew from royal life and her husband took over for her. I remember watching all those Martina and Chris Evert battles back in the 80s. The Kents are big tennis fans. Michael and his wife also attend regularly. I imagine we will see Camilla, Sophie and maybe Eugenie and Beatrice in the royal box during the fortnight. Kate will most likely be back to watch with William.

The Kents as you mentioned are big tennis fans. Many of the family attend, including Lord and Lady Frederick generally. Sophie normally will only attend the Ladies Semi-Final/Final but Edward never seems to attend, considering he is meant to be a big tennis fan. Admittedly he prefers the old school "real tennis", which is as we know how he met Sophie.

I am sure William will attend with Kate some day as he attended last year.

Crown Prince Frederick has been known to attend as well.
