The passing of this patronage from the Queen to Kate doesn't come as a big surprise to me but seems to feel like passing on a patronage that will fit Kate like a pair of snug gloves. It will probably remain with Kate until, as Queen Consort, she passes it down the line to her successor.

The Duchess of Cambridge Charities and Patronages

The Wimbledon patronage just screamed Kate. The Queen never appeared to be a huge tennis fan and Kate is. The same thing with the English Rugby Union and Harry. The Queen is also patron of the Welsh Rugby Union too. I wonder if that would be turned over to William?

The news papers have been making quite a big deal of the Queen handing over these sporting patronages. However these are not sports that the Queen is much a fan of or has done much with - she hasn't attended rugby matches for over 20 years according to the Daily Mail and attending Wimbledon has been rare and when she does it looks like its the most boring engagement ever for the Queen.
It seems an obvious choice for it to be given to Kate who is passionate about tennis. Look forward to this being announced in the near future.

It's the Duke of Kent as President that has the high profile for The All England Club and attends most days of the Wimbledon tournament.

HMQ has only visited 4 times in her entire reign.

Even though QEII will be handing the patronage over to Kate, I still see the DoK being present throughout the tournament.

Why couldn't Kate present the Ladies champion trophy like the Duchess of Kent used to do? If the All England Club has grass roots tennis programs that could be something else Kate could do sort of how William helps promote grass roots soccer with The FA.

She'll have a role to play. The Queen just wasn't active in her role as patron.

Exactly and it is about time a Royal who loves the game passionately becomes the Royal Patron of Wimbledon. I think we'll be surprised by what Catherine will bring to the role, simply because Her Majesty is not a Tennis Fan and in turn, IMHO, this is one of her Patron of an Organization that when people think of Britain, they think of... Patronages. Which is no slam against Her Majesty, as we have all had to take things on we were bored to tears over simply because it was the right thing to do. Like when she turned up for Andy Murray's Semi Final a few years ago. I'm sure Her Majesty felt she like she was watching paint dry, but she was there to cheer on Andy and if she hadn't, the uproar would have been huge.

I hope what I'm trying to say is getting across.

One thing I'd love to see Catherine do, is attend some of the Paralympic Wheelchair matches. Not many know they also take part in the Grand Slams as well. Unless you follow Paralympic Sport that is. Her attendance at those matches would also bring the Press and in turn...Win Win IMO!!!

We'll have to wait and see, but I do think we'll be surprised to see what direction Catherine takes this in.

I also hope any of that made sense. I always watch as much live coverage from the Aussie Open that I can, but w/a Canadian in the mix!?! To say I'm Sleep Deprived is a huge understatement ATM!!

Oh I love the idea of her publicizing the Paralympic matches! Very good idea

I, too, think Kate will make an excellent patron for this. As she is to take over the Queen's role, I'm sure that she will eager to do all she can. One thing I do expect her to do though is respect the standing that the current President, the Duke of Kent holds. Kate just seems the type to be more apt to work with someone rather than just take over a top spot. For all we know, the DoK may actually welcome someone younger taking the reins more and more.

With all of Harry's focus on wounded service personnel and Kate's emphasis on youth, in the future it would be really nice to see more and more focus put on sports and disabilities and grass roots programs as a whole. Champions are to be found in every level and should be celebrated.

I'm so glad to see that the Queen is turning over these patronages to the younger generation, What I'm exceedingly glad of is that they are being turned over to someone who actually loves the sports they will be patronizing. Yes, Wimbledon screams Kate, just like rugby with William and Harry.

It's long been expected that Kate would take on this role - i wonder who will become the patron of the LTA which is another one of the patronages the Queen is giving up. I see this being for the Duchess of Gloucester who already works a lot for them and represents them on numerous engagements

This is great, Kate can be the de facto tennis supporter for the BRF now.
