Prince William and Kate to attend Wimbledon next week

As a keen tennis fan, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will be making an appearance at Wimbledon next week, Kensington Palace has confirmed. Kate will be joined by her husband Prince William to watch some of the day's quarter-final matches on Centre Court on Wednesday.

Last year the couple caused a frenzy among fellow attendees when they were spotted taking their seats in the Royal Box.

William and Kate were watching Roger Federer take on Novak Djokovic in the men's singles final, and it was then that Kate famously displayed an array of emotions and was pictured cheering and clasping her hands to her face.

While the mum-of-two, who gave birth to her daughter Princess Charlotte in May, has not yet made a return to the royal circuit, her husband William has a long list of engagements scheduled.

The Prince will commence his first full week of shifts as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance on Monday 13 July, but before then, the future King will carry out various duties.

The day before attending Wimbledon, William will join survivors and families of victims of the 7 July 2005 London bombings at a memorial event in Hyde Park. The event, held on the tenth anniversary of the attacks, has been organised by the families themselves and will take place at the permanent memorial in the park.

On Thursday 9 July, the Duke will visit the Imperial War Museum Duxford to accept the gift of a newly restored Supermarine Spitfire Mark I N3200 on behalf of the museum. William will watch an aerial display and tour the Battle of Britain exhibition, followed by a visit to the Aircraft Restoration Company workshop where the classic aircraft was restored.

The following day he will join the Queen and other members of the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to view a RAF Flypast to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The group will then attend the 75th Anniversary lunch at the RAF Club alongside some very special guests – the six remaining RAF Battle of Britain pilots and the squadron commanders of Battle of Britain squadrons still serving in the RAF.
