CAMBRIDGES AT WIMBLEDON, 2011: CATHERINE WEARS WHITE FOR THE EVENT

WIMBLEDON 2011:  THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE ATTEND

Wimbledon sizzled on Monday, June 27th and not just because temperatures soared in into the 90s.  Tennis fan Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge made her first attendance as a royal at Wimbledon.  She and William, who also enjoys tennis, were cheered by 15,000 fans upon their arrival.  From the royal box, the couple watched Briton Andy Murray defeat Frenchman Richard Gasquet 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 6-2 to earn a spot in Wimbledon’s quarter finals.  Murray bowed to the couple after his victory.  “If I’d known they were coming,” Murray said, “I would have shaved . . . it was very nice to meet them.”

Catherine visited Wimbledon in 2007 and 2008.  This year as part of Wimbledon’s 125th anniversary celebrations, officials displayed a letter the duchess wrote when she was still Catherine Middleton thanking officials for their help and for finding tickets for her for Centre Court.  This year, she and William attended Wimbledon in a private capacity, with Catherine wearing a summery tiered dress in white, the dominant color donned by players.  It was clear the royal couple were enjoying their time at Wimbledon.  At one point, Catherine even managed to convince William to join in the wave  from the royal box.
