Thank you for this. I had read some time ago that George VI competed at Wimbledon & had forgotten all about it. Does anyone know how far he progressed?

I came across this footage of George V & Queen Mary presenting medals at Wimbledon in 1926.

Isn't is wonderful?

I just came across this. It would be worth having Murray in the final just to see the Queen at Wimbledon again.

We still have the finals yet, and we have yet to see if Murray wins against Roddick

We've had the Duke of Kent this year aswell as Viscount Linley.

Now that we know Murray is not going to be in the Final, there was little hope the Queen would attend the match.
Let's hope we will finally see a Brit (and Her Majesty) in the final of the Wimbledon in 2010.

Unfortunately, we already know the results: Murray lost the semi-final 4-6, 6-4. 6-7, 6-7. He was this close to victory but Roddick was the lucky one. It was an amazing match though.

Ahh was it, I checked the score just after typing the message and I thought they were still playing. Her Majesty may yet grace wimbledon.
We can hope Murray makes it next year.

I certainly do hope so: I happen to be a Murray fan.

I was hoping to see Queen Elizabeth attending Wimbledon this year! I was disappointed when Roddick won (nothing against Roddick, I am just more of a QEII fan).

Zara Philips was there as well, along with Mike Tindall, as can be seen in this picture.

Unfortunately, NBC didn't focus on any royals in attendance. We got multiple shots of Pete Sampras, Russel Crowe and Woody Allen, plus Ben Stiller on Saturday.

One of the highlights of a British Summer is here again & an added treat is The Queen's first visit to Wimbledon since her SilverJubilee year.
