Kate's the queen of Wimbledon's court
William and Kate take in the action at Wimbledon on Monday. Sitting behind them is all-time tennis great Billie Jean King.
Tennis fan that she is, you just knew that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wasn't going to be able to stay away from Wimbledon.
Taking time out from her preparations for her Canadian tour with Prince William beginning Thursday, the royal couple entered the All-England Tennis Club at 12:30 p.m. (London time) on Monday, just in time to catch Britain's Andy Murray take on Richard Gasquet of France in the fourth round.
Fans cheered as the couple took their seats in the 33C heat.
The Duchess wore a pleated Temperley's Moriah Dress, reports the Daily Mail, which cost about $625.
St. James's Palace said William and Kate were at the All England Club “privately.” The palace said Kate has been to Wimbledon “quite a number of times” and is a keen tennis fan.
The Queen came to Wimbledon last year for her first visit in 33 years.
Murray advanced to the quarter-finals with a straight-set victory over Gasquet, and before leaving the court, bowed to the royal couple.
"It was nice," Murray said of the royal spectators who were cheering him on. "I didn't know they would be there.
"As I walked off the practice courts a journalist told me. I didn't practice the bow - I didn't know if my source was correct or if they were winding me up.
"I think it's great for tennis any time you can get royalty to come along."
