Kate is an avid tennis fan, patron of the Lawn Tennis Association and a fixture at Wimbledon. Today is her first appearance at the championship this year.

The royal parents-of-three looked in excellent spirits as they took their seats in the Royal Box, which also featured David Walliams to watch defending champion Novak Djokovic.

Defending champion Djokovic will get the action going on Center Court as he takes on a high-flying Jannik Sinner for a spot in what looks set to be an exciting match.

Djokovic is followed on the center court by the third Saat Ons Jabeur, who does not have to give up a set on the way to the quarter-finals because she is playing against the unseeded Marie Bouzkova.

Britain’s Cameron Norrie will look to cement a place in a Grand Slam semi-final for the first time when he takes on David Goffin on Court 1 this afternoon. The ninth seed had never advanced past the third round in a slam before.

Kate, who wore an Alessandra Rich dress previously worn at the anniversary weekend, was joined at the event by her parents Carole and Michael Middleton, who also received an invitation to the Royal Box.

The Duchess’s appearance today comes at a busy time for the King, who was visiting Cambridgeshire with husband Prince William earlier this month.

During her recent County Day appointment at Newmarket Racecourse, Kate looked delighted as she held a boy wearing a pink dress.

A video of the sweet moment shows the mother-of-three smiling and talking to the baby, who asked her if she could hold her and told her mom, “I love babies.”

Meanwhile, Prince William was spotted lounging nearby watching his wife cuddle the tot, and Kate was certainly in no rush to leave as he urged her to move on.

The baby’s mother, Marianne Provoost, who traveled from the Netherlands for the event, said the Duchess asked to hold her child, saying: “I love babies.”

Her daughter, four-month-old Norah, was returned to her and Ms Provoost told the Duchess: “Enjoy your day and enjoy your children.”
