Wimbledon has always been one of the highlights of the summer for the royal family. Avid tennis lovers include the Prince and Princess of Wales, Mike and Zara Tindall, and the Duchess of Edinburgh.

The royals have stepped out to view the action from the Royal Box over the years and we love seeing their reactions, particularly during a nail-biting match. Kate is a big tennis fan and regularly attends the tournament - check out her best moments from SW19 in the video below...

WATCH: Princess Kate is the ultimate Wimbledon fan

The likes of Kate, Meghan Markle, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have also impressed us with their courtside outfits, from Wimbledon whites to bold block-coloured ensembles.

Take a look at some of HELLO!'s favourite photos of the royals at SW19…

The Prince and Princess of Wales

A tense moment!

The Princess became patron of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club in 2016, a patronage that was passed on to her from the late Queen. Kate has always been a regular at Wimbledon, attending as a child with the Middleton family, but now she has pride of place in the Royal Box. Kate's facial expressions are priceless, and she gets just as anxious as the rest of us!
