Princess Kate charms Wimbledon staff as she recalls queuing she was younger

Princess Kate enthusiastically discussed how the queues are managed for one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world.

Speaking to authorities in the Wimbledon grounds, the Princess of Wales fondly asked the Metropolitan Police if it “has been hard to manage the queues outside”.

She added: “It has almost become a thing, in a way, which I loved doing when I was younger.”

Princess Kate, 41, had returned to Wimbledon to watch the ladies’ singles final on July 15, marking her second appearance at this year’s tournament.

Recalling her own time spent queuing in her youth, Princess Kate said: “Coming to see Wimbledon, it was part of the anticipation.”

Speaking from within the grounds, Princess Kate offered her congratulations to the staff stating it was a “team effort” to manage the excited crowds gathered to see the prestigious tennis tournament.

Before the women’s singles final, the Royal had met representatives from the British Army, London Ambulance Service, London Fire Brigade and Metropolitan Police.

The Princess of Wales also cheekily asked the staff members if they are able to watch some of the games as she did her walkabout.

Later in the day, Princess Kate took a seat in the Royal Box on centre court to watch Czech player Marketa Vondrousova take on Tunisian, Ons Jabeur.

Ms Vondrousova became the third Czech woman to win the ladies’ single title, defeating Ons Jabeur 6-4, 6-4.

After her win, the tennis star exclaimed: “I made a bet with my coach, if I won a grand slam he was going to get a tattoo too – I think we are going to go tomorrow!”

The Princess of Wales beamed as she handed the Venus Rosewater Dish to the star after an emotional win.

Wearing a £420 Lime green dress from Self Portrait, the Princess accessorised with cluster pearl earrings from Cassandra Goad, costing a huge £4,927.

Kate sat next to tennis great Billie Jean King in the Royal Box on Wimbledon’s Centre Court to watch the players compete for the title and had been seen chatting to Wimbledon staff including a ball girl and ball boy.

As a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Kate is a regular face at SW19.

She had a rain-hit visit on the tournament’s second day when she took shelter under an umbrella on Court 18, where she was watching British number one Katie Boulter.
