Duchess Kate was delighted as she took her seat

Kate is an avid tennis fan.

Back in 2017, during an appearance on BBC documentary, Sue Barker: Our Wimbledon, Kate shared some insightful anecdotes about her tennis-loving family - including one moment when her dad Michael Middleton left her feeling "mortified".

Kate is truly glowing 

She recalled the moment her father tried to play it cool in front of the former British number one tennis player Tim Henman, telling broadcaster Sue: "My father is not going to appreciate this but we were walking past Tim Henman and we had just seen Sampras play.

"My dad said very coolly, 'Hi Pete'. I was mortified!"

Speaking about her love for the sport, Kate said: "I have watched Wimbledon, that was very much part of my growing up.

"It's such a quintessential part of the English summer, and I think it really inspires youngsters, myself, it inspired me when I was younger to get involved in the game. It hasn't changed either, I think that's what's so wonderful."

Laughing, Kate also revealed: "Roger [Federer] is my mother's heartthrob.

"I don't think she will mind me saying that! I think he probably knows that too."
