“Prior to the start of the day, Their Royal Highnesses will meet a number of former Wimbledon Ladies Champions, as well as some of The Championships’ ball boys and ball girls, to hear more about their experiences of the tournament.”
The two duchesses will take to the royal box to watch the match. It will be definitely a memorable experience.
Meghan will be able to watch her close friend Serena Williams compete against Angelique Kerber for the chance to win a record-breaking 24th grand slam title.
And Kate, she is Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and a keen tennis fan. Therefor we are not surprised she will be taking a break from her maternity leave to attend the match.
She and William will also be attending the men’s singles the day after.
Before the game, the duchesses will meet a number of former Wimbledon ladies champions. Also some of the Championships’ ball boys and ball girls to hear more about the experiences of the tournament.
This will be their first joint engagement for Kate and Meghan. And we are so excited to see their bond on display.
When the Palace announced the news, it pleasantly surprised many fans.
One commenter said: “Yeah! Can’t wait to see these two beautiful, great ladies together!”
Another said: “YES! Duchess day out!”
Yes, Meghan attended Wimbledon two years ago as a guest of Ralph Lauren. Still, she hasn’t made an appearance in the royal box this year.
However, Serena Williams, her close friend, hinted that Meghan will attend Wimledon. Whenasked if Meghan would attend, she suggested she may on one condition – that she is “winning”.
She said: “I don’t know. We’ll see. If I keep winning.”
This week was definitely a busy one for both Meghan and Kate.
On Monday they appeared for the christening of Prince Louis. And the next day, they joined other senior royals at a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force at Westminster Abbey.
