The Royal Box has the best seats in the house when it comes to watching the action live at Wimbledon. The coveted places are usually reserved for the likes of Prince William and Kate, who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and other members of the royal family. To secure an invitation to one of the 74 seats available, you have to be invited by the Chairman of the All England Club. Guests usually include heads of government, people from the world of tennis, commercial partners, British armed forces, prominent media organisations, supporters of British tennis and more. Let's take a look at who's donned their prettiest dresses and finest jackets and ties for day eleven of Wimbledon…
