A joyous Andy Murray joked with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge about the "lucky omen" that boosted him to Wimbledon victory - his baby daughter slept through for three nights' running.

Murray, whose daughter Sophia Olivia was born in February, was congratulated by William and Kate on his second All England Club title with moments of leaving a packed Centre Court.

I kind of agree. I think if the rumors are true that Kate will take over as a patron and maybe when the Duke dies that she will absorb both these role into some kind of new role?

Seeing as the Duke of Kent has always enjoyed this patronage, I would think that knowing that the Cambridges, especially Kate, have a keen interest in the sport and the patronage would be a kind of a security blanket for him. As we get older, we do tend to think more and more of how things will be taken care of should we not be able to do them anymore and knowing he has backup in the wings has to be a good feeling.

I'm seeing this backup kind of thing more and more as a pattern in the BRF. Transition and continuity where no matter what happens, the gears in the machine of the monarchy are well oiled to keep running smoothly.

The Duke of Kent is president. The Queen is Patron. It's entirely possible (and probable, imo) The Queen will pass the patronage to the Duchess of Cambridge and leave the Duke of Kent as president. Best of both worlds

I agree. They're very private, but those little loving moments between the two is always nice to see.
