Duchess presents Novak Djokovic with trophy after marathon Wimbledon battle

Duchess presents Novak Djokovic with trophy after marathon Wimbledon battle

The duchess, patron of the All England Tennis Club, had joined the duke, the club's president, in the Royal Box at Wimbledon for what turned out to be a classic clash and the longest Men's Singles Final in the tournament's history.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived early to the Wimbledon Women's final with her sister, Pippa Middleton.

The Duchess of Sussex's guard warned off several fans who were sitting nearby from clicking selfies.

Fabulous in floral! Pippa Middleton looked chic in a blue and white patterned dress for her outing to the Ladies Singles Final, where she applauded from the Royal Box.

The couple dressed their best for the occasion, with Kate in a £1,390 powder blue Emilia Wickstead dress and William wearing complementary blue pants with a shirt, tie, grey blazer, and brown suede shoes.

The Duchess wore bespoke green Dolge & Gabbana midi dress that she previously wore when she visited Kelowna during her 2016 royal tour of Canada alongside husband Prince William.

Serena also revealed she felt supported by her good friend Meghan, despite admitting her component had played "out of her mind".

British Prime Minister Theresa May was also present at the match.

Both duchesses also attended last year's final, when Williams lost to Angelique Kerber.

"I can watch it from my phone, it will be worth it even just to get in to see him win", he said.

The Centre Court crowd applauded Djokovic as he knelt to the ground after his win and ate some grass - his celebratory tradition.

"I have learned that it's a normal match - not thinking that much about the trophy, just going there and trying to be the best you can", she added.

"I know lots of people would like to get pictures of Meghan and I know people get cross when she gets upset because she's a public figure". You played an incredible game.
