Today the patron of All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club Duchess of Cambridge was back again in the centre court to watch the men’s final with Duke of Cambridge Prince William. Once again upon arrival Duke and Duchess were received by the President of the Wimbledon Foundation and his wife.
Duke and Duchess met with the tennis star Rod Laver and Kim Clijsters. Laver’s 200 singles titles are the most in tennis history. This included his all-time men’s record of 10 or more titles per year for seven consecutive years (1964–70). He excelled in all of the court surfaces of his time: grass, clay, hard, carpet, and wood/parquet. Clijsters is a Belgian former professional tennis player. She won 41 singles and eleven doubles titles during her career.
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also joined by the British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband in the royal box.
Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson were playing against each other today at the final match in which Novak Djokovic came out victorious.
William and Catherine seemed totally engrossed in the match.
There were few tense moments in the match that brought the beautiful emotions on Catherine’s face that all the Duchess lovers were awaiting. Catherine is a keen tennis fan and amateur player. Last year in a special interview for a BBC documentary Duchess revealed her lifelong love of the tournament. “I have watched Wimbledon, that was very much part of my growing up. I was really taken by Agassi and Sampras, Ivanisevic and Steffi Graf. Those are my first memories.” She told about the experiences when she queued for hours to get into the tournament before joining the Royal Family, “Being able to go into Wimbledon and be part of an amazing atmosphere is special.” She said: “It inspires young people including myself. Every time Wimbledon is on I am thinking ‘Yes, I could do the same’ and get out the racket. Sadly, not the same results.”
After the match, the royal couple congratulated the new Wimbledon champion and they discussed parenting tips as Djokovic himself is a father of 5 years old son who for the first time was present in his match to see him bringing the trophy home.
Yesterday Duchess enjoyed the women’s final at the centre court in a white Jenny Packham dress. Today bringing the sunshine elegance to the one of the grand tennis tournament, Duchess wore yellow Dolce & Gabbana Crepe dress.
The vibrant yellow fitted crepe dress is described as, “Crafted from smoothing crepe, this knee-length style is perfect for warm-weather events – think the races, weddings and garden parties. It’s subtly darted through the bodice for a figure-hugging fit and finished with ruffled sleeves.
The £805 dress belongs to the label’s tropical Resort ’17 collection.
