It is no secret that the royal family is full of tennis fans, especially Kate Middleton, a regular attendant at Wimbledon, and it seems she has passed on her love for tennis to her eldest son Prince George. And as a tennis fan, he got one of the biggest honour one can get, and that is meeting his favourite tennis player-Roger, Federer.
Not only did Kate Revealed George Has Played Tennis With His Favorite Player. This was revealed by Kate on Tuesday when she attended day two of Wimbledon. She talked about her and her sons love for the sport and revealed what his favourite player was. We don’t know where that match took place, but it most likely happened at the Cambridge’s country home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall.
Back in 2017, Kate revealed that Prince George had started learning to play tennis while visiting the Lawn Tennis Association. There she talked with LTA coach Sam Richardson and asked the experienced coach for advice. He later revealed: “She says with George just being four he wants to whack a ball, so she was asking what sort of stuff should she be doing.
They will struggle at that age to hit a ball. She said he’s interested in it, but more in whacking the ball.” Sam revealed that Kate had also been getting tips from Andy Murray’s mother, Judy. He said: “She said she spoke to Judy Murray and she suggested taking away the racket and do more of the basic stuff, which is absolutely right. But four-year-old boys want to swing the racket around.”
During her day at Wimbledon on Tuesday, Kate got the chance to meet with some of the tennis stars, such as Johanna Konta and Andy Murray-with the two taking a sneaky photo of themselves during their conversation.
The picture was later uploaded on Prince William and Kate’s official Instagram account, Kensington Palace, as well as a couple of photos of the Duchess watching the Harriet Dart vs. Christina McHale game. Kate was seated next to tennis stars Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong. Katie missed this tournament due to a back injury, while Anne has been retired from the sport for several years now.
