will the Duchess of Glouchester be attending the Davis Cup matches at Wimbledon between 21st September - 23 September 2007

i did not notice it on her official engagements but wondered because of her role within the LTA and the fact it will be Tim Henman's last ever match playing tennis thought she would attendin either in an official or private role

i attended the davis cup at wimbledon on the friday and saturday
the duchess was beautiful and very elegant it is hard to believe that she is 60

during the event the duchess was sitting two blocks of seats away from me and the seats were exactly the same as everyone else was sitting on only on the second day did they get her the hired cushions!!!

i got fab pics of her especially when she turned a gave us a big smile because we waved to her and said ma'am. on the second day after the tennis had finished at about 5pm she was walking about the grounds at henman hill with only her bodyguard and her lady-in-waiting and a few LTA officials and some people who didnt recognised bumped into her.

she is a totally normal person getting excited when the tennis was going GB's way and all tense when it wasnt. it is so nice to see the "older" royals joining in with the people but i couldnt imagne the queen behaving like this

The pictures are beautiful, Princess of E. You have an awesome camera (I followed the link on imageshack to see what camera you used).
The Duchess wore her favorite pearls. Do you know what kind of pearls? She wears them almost everytime she goes out. It is hard believe she is thought of as "older royal". I mean, she looks so much younger than 60! She looks about 45 max.

She is always looking much younger than her years, but this pic especially makes her look about 40. That hairstyle takes about four X more years off her look than her normal look does, and that says a lot. This woman is gorgeous.

Yes, The Duchess is so beautiful and natural looking, and you have to shake you head in bewilderment that she is 60, 61 years old. Princess Alexandra is a beautiful woman too, especially when she was a young woman, so exquisite and fresh. But on the topic of The Duchess, I love how she is growing her hair long at the moment. It's a wonderful length for her face and takes years away.
