Duchess Kate Reveals Why Princess Charlotte Didn’t Attend Wimbledon

The Wimbledon finals also marked Prince George’s debut at the tennis tournament, as the young royal joined his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in the Royal Box of the centre court.

It seems that the timing of Prince George’s debut at the tournament wasn’t a spontaneous moment and his father wanted his son to follow in his footsteps and attend Wimbledon just shy of his ninth birthday, the same age William was when he first attended alongside his late mother Princess Diana.

However, some of you may wonder why Prince George was the only one of his siblings to be in attendance for the final between Djokovic and Kyrgios – we certainly did.

Prince Louis wasn’t there as he’s still too young, Wimbledon rules state that children have to be over five so they aren’t a disturbance to the spectators and players, therefore the young royal isn’t even allowed into the event.

Unfortunately, we don’t know why Princess Charlotte wasn’t there – perhaps she just wasn’t keen.

Even Prince George is a bit young for the event, as children are very rarely seen in the Royal Box. Unless members of the Royal Family children aren’t even allowed to sit in the Royal Box, it seems George behaved himself and was a pleasant addition to the box.

The minimum age, of course, applies to everyone, even the players! Wimbledon singles champion Novak Djokovic is also keen to bring along his daughter to watch a match, but he’ll have to wait till next year.

“She’s not five years old yet so she wasn’t allowed to watch a match live, but next year hopefully if she’s interested, which she wasn’t so much in tennis, she can watch daddy play live,” the Serbian told Sue Baker.

As for Prince George, Wimbledon isn’t his first large sporting event, as he previously attended the Euro finals last year, cheering on the England team from the sidelines.

Though the young royal seemed to have enjoyed Wimbledon very much and he was seen smiling the entire time while watching from his seat in the Royal Box.

George isn’t the only one who enjoys the sport, as the commentator revealed during the final. All three of the Cambridge children seem to have inherited their love for the game from their mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is known for her fondness of the game.
