Wimbledon is back for 2024! Not only do tennis fans get to enjoy all the action for the next two weeks, but they also get to keep their eye on all the court-side glamour. 

On the opening day of the 137th Championships, Princess Maria-Olympia, James Blunt and his wife Sofia Wellesley were among the A-list crowd to arrive at Centre Court. The couple appeared to be in great spirits as they prepared to watch the likes of Grigor Dimitrov, Carlos Alcaraz, Frances Tiafoe, Naomi Osaka and Emma Raducanu

This year, Novak Djokovic will have his eyes on the prize as he tries to claim his 25th Grand Slam singles title and eighth Wimbledon win. If he achieves the latter, he would be on par with retired tennis star Roger Federer's record.

Take a look at the pictures of which celebrities attended the first day of the annual tennis tournament…
