The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's parents were among the VIP arrivals to watch the action at Wimbledon on Friday.

Carole, 66, and Michael, 72, made quite the stylish entrance as they arrived at the tennis tournament.

The businesswoman donned a floaty red midi dress with white wedges and a straw hat, while Michael looked smart in a navy suit with a patterned tie.

Kate, who is Carole and Michael's eldest child, will watch the Wimbledon finals this weekend, after completing a period of self-isolation. The Duchess will be joined by her husband, Prince William, for the ladies' single final on Saturday.

Joining the Middletons at SW19 on Friday were David Beckham, Christine and Frank Lampard, Jenna Coleman as well as Prince Michael of Kent with his son, Lord Frederick Windsor and wife, Lady Frederick Windsor.
