The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, made her 2022 debut at Wimbledon alongside her husband Prince William on Tuesday.
Kate, an avid tennis player (she and William have a court at their country home of Anmer Hall), is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and typically watches matches from the Royal Box.

In 2021, she cheered the players on at both the women's final, where she presented winner Ashleigh Barty of Australia with the trophy, and the men's final, where she joined the crowd and dad Michael Middleton in doing the wave!

In September, Kate teamed up with 2021 U.S. Open women's singles winner Emma Raducanu for a doubles game at the National Tennis Centre in southwest London.
Sam Richardson, the Lawn Tennis Association head of programs, told reporters after the game of Kate, "her forehand is incredible."

"I think she was perhaps a bit nervous, as anyone would be coming on against four Grand Slam champions," Richardson added. "But she held her own — she was brilliant. I think she hit two shots that landed plum on the line. That's a pretty good shot. She looked like she was having a good time and was playing well."
