There was royal approval for today’s Wimbledon men’s final as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with baby Prince George, arrived to watch the action.
She cheered on Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina alone as she watched from the Royal Box with Tom Cruise, who is patron of the All England Club. Prince William and her eldest son, Prince George, are at SW19 today to see if Novak Djokovic can retain his Wimbledon title or if Aussie bad boy Nick Krygios can win his first Wimbledon crown.
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived to witness today’s Wimbledon men’s final, with Prince George in tow making his first appearance at SW19. She cheered on Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina alone as she watched from the Royal Box with Tom Cruise, who is patron of the All England Club.
Novak Djokovic is back at SW19 to defend his title against Aussie bad boy Nick Krygios, who has been joined by Prince William and their eldest son, sports fan Prince George. At the championship, Kate introduced George to four new stewards: Lieutenant Colonel Lucy Smith, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Philip Morton, Lieutenant Commander Chris Boucher, and Sergeant Jacquie Crook.
This ensures that people are doing the proper thing, sitting in their assigned seats, as well as ensuring that everyone and everything is secure.
It was clear to Kate and George how important stewards are after meeting them at the championship – Lt. Col. Lucy Smith, deputy assistant commissioner Philip Morton, Lt. Commander Chris Boucher, and Sergeant Jacquie Crook.
After a concert, she said: “They make sure everyone is safe and happy. They make sure everyone is doing what is appropriate, sitting where they should be, and making sure there is no danger.”Syed Arez and Dior Knorr, along with ball girls Amy Granger and Dylan Mulvey from Wandsworth, will toss the coin.
Dylan later revealed this: “I was confident it would be a life-changing experience for me and one that would make my family extremely proud. After meeting with the royals, he added: “It was a good, engaging, and enjoyable talk. They had a great disposition.”
Amy chimed in: “My time with the royals has been wonderful. “It was an amazing experience. I was apprehensive at first. They were quite cordial and enquiring, and I appreciated their efforts.
What questions did they ask us about our training and how we made it to this point, and if we had found it enjoyable?
According to the couple’s official Twitter account, the following was tweeted: “Going to the Wimbledon final for men! You know what they say “It’s going to get hot!”At the conclusion of the final round. The awards for the winner and runner-up will be presented by the duchess.
Tennis is a favorite pastime for Prince George, who has been taking lessons since the age of five. There’s little doubt Prince George is talented with a tennis racket since Roger Federer has previously confirmed that he’s given him private lessons.
His response was: “At that point, all you need to do is to touch it.” Prior to the finals on Saturday, Kate was able to meet with the future stars of the sport and those who labor to keep the tournament running well. Having just witnessed Rybakina win the title in three nail-biting sets, she was full of appreciation for both players’ efforts in the oppressively hot arena.
“Wow, what a final!” she tweeted afterward. Congratulations, Elena Rybakina, and my sympathies, Ons Jabeur. Brilliant contest on a glorious day. Thank you, Wimbledon for making us proud every year! ‘Til we meet again!
Their support for Cameron Norrie’s quarterfinal victory over Belgian David Goffin was evident earlier this week.
Congratulations to both players, but also to the unsung heroes who helped make this event possible.
“Wimbledon, you make us proud every year! Thank you!” Later this week, Cameron Norrie beat Belgian David Goffin to reach the semi-finals of the men’s singles tournament. When Norrie lost in the semi-finals against Serbia’s six-time Wimbledon champion, the royal couple were nowhere to be seen.
The Duchess of Cambridge had to cancel her appearance on Centre Court on Thursday because it was her children’s last day of school before they went on vacation for the rest of the year. Rafael Nadal had to withdraw from the semifinals of the Australian Open because of an abdominal injury, and Novak Djokovic stated he was pleased to see Kyrgios.
There was also a news conference following Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal, in which Nick Kyrgios claimed to have developed a “bromance” with Novak Djokovic. “You’ll probably never see anybody who just wins and just plays the game so good as a winner than Djokovic,” he added.
