Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton were both in the gaming spirit over the weekend as they attended a Wimbledon match.
When Novak thrashed Federer, he later on personally thanked both the Duke and the Duchess for attending the game. He in particular asked Kate if she was on top of her game.
She responded by saying that she had a bit of catching on to do due to the extra care her son George demanded from her.
The two royal figures are both amateur players and fans of tennis. William has confessed to being defeated several times by his wife who packs a mean wallop.
In fact, it appears to be the case that she is the more skilled player of the two. William has only fond memories of Wimbledon.
He used to attend the world-famous tournament with his late mother Diana. Prince Harry too went along with them.
This is the second time William and Kate are attending the Wimbledon series since they became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge respectively.
There is even conversation going on regarding Kate becoming an honorary ambassador to Wimbledon. At the recent match, David and Victoria Beckham hobnobbed with the royal couple.
Other VIPs who got to join the royal circle included: Hugh Jackman, Samuel L. Jackson and Bradley Cooper. Kate’s sister, Pippa, was there among the crowd and so were her parents.
As they say, the more the merrier. Meanwhile, the royal couple also decided to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the Tour de France.
This year, due to the presence of British winners, it was held in Yorkshire instead of France. The Duchess met with many of her fans. As the race of the ten speed bikes began, the Duke and Duchess looked on with eager anticipation.
They are definitely into sports and their level of enthusiasm and keen desire to participate and be spectators of the spectacle shows.
