It's been great to see all the royals at Wimbledon so far and I especially loved seeing Catherine and Meghan there together. I've been on holiday for a couple of weeks so am just catching up on all the reports now!

Why would it be odd for Kate to present one of the trophies? She is the president right now and will likely be Patron in the fairly near future. I am sure it was all worked out with the DOK beforehand. Plus, I suspect her close friendship with Roger Federer was also a likely reason too.

Darn good tennis yesterday! What an incredible match.

Kate is patron, the Duke of Kent is president.
Kate is never likely to be the president, itís a position that demands much more involvement than can be expected of the Princess of Wales and Queen Consort one day.
Personally, I think Prince Edward is the likely successor for the Duke of Kent.

Why prince Edward? Not because of the shared first name I assume
He doesn't seem to be attending now... (but I might have missed something - I haven't been following that closely). I believe at least the countess of Wessex attends Wimbledon regularly (i.e., yearly); so she seems a more likely choice.

Edit: I just read that the two of them met at the tennis court; maybe that's the reason you suggested he might become the next president? Still, does the earl regularly attend Wimbledon matches nowadays? If not, I'd say that the countess would be the better choice; we'll just have to wait and see...

Pardon, I got it mixed up.

And I personally don't see how Kate being PoW at some point and QC at an ever further point would prohibit her from being President. The DoE had some high level positions with orgs that demanded time. Prince William does. Charles too.

Now, I am not myself sure Kate will be as much of a...worker in her roles per se. But I doubt the president role is so all consuming that it is automatically out for her.

I see no reason why Kate couldnít be President other than it is perhaps more likely that the club has a tradition that these positions are held by separate people. I agree lately Sophie seems more visibly supportive of the All England Club, but I believe Edward is Patron of the Tennis and Rackets Association. Princess Marina was the previous president before her son, the current Duke of Kent, so it might stay in the family. Either way, Kate becoming part of the presentation of the trophies seems a natural progression.

It's got nothing to do with the title, and everything to do with the level of involvement in the club itself.
