British Royals Attend Wimbledon Day Four
The Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester were among the many who headed to Wimbledon for day four of the tennis competition.
Camilla was in the stands of Court 1 to watch Scotsman Andy Murray defeat Dutchman Robin Haase in straight sets. She was accompanied by the Chairman of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Philip Brook, who gave her the sweatband he caught that Murray threw into the crowd at the match’s conclusion. The Duchess wrinkled her nose at the object, but tucked it into her purse for safekeeping.
Prior to the match, the Duchess met with players in the pavilion, wishing Rafael Nadal – “Rafa” as she called him, like many tennis fans – luck in his next match (which he unfortunately lost in four sets) and joked with Daniela Hantuchova that she must have “come in her push chair!” when she played her first match at Wimbledon 15 years ago.
The Duke of Kent, President of the All England Club, and the Duchess of Gloucester, Honorary President of the Lawn Tennis Association, were present on Centre Court for the day’s matches.Filed under The United Kingdom
