Wimbledon | Surprise Royal visit

The Duchess of Cambridge was pictured laughing with pals as she made a surprise appearance at the Wimbledon Championships today.

Swapping the Royal Box for a low-key seat on Court 14, the Duchess lent her support to British wildcard player Harriet Dart.

The Duchess, who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, will spend the day at Wimbledon meeting players and watching the second day of action.

Expected to sit in the Royal Box on Centre Court for the most high profile matches of the day, she surprised ticket-holders by arriving to watch Dart play American Christina McHale, accompanied by Anne Keothavong and Katie Boulter, and joined by a small number of staff and security in the ordinary seats in Wimbledon’s outer courts.

Dart, 22, is one of 8 British players in action at The Championships today, with Johanna Konta due on No 1 court later to play Romanian Ana Bogdan.

Elsewhere, Katie Swan will be playing against Germany’s Laura Siegemund on Court 12, and Dan Evans starts his Wimbledon against Argentine Federico Delbonis on Court 18.

Nineteen-year-old wild card Paul Jubb, who was raised by his grandmother on a Hull council estate, will play Joao Sousa from Portugal.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a sleek tennis-style white shirt dress and shared a joke with Boulter, who is not competing this year because of a back injury, and Keothavong, Britain’s Fed Cup Captain, as they sat in the stands together.
