Royals at Wimbledon - 2016


The Duke of Kent is President of All England Club, where Wimbledon is held. The Duchess of Gloucester is Honorary President of the Lawn Tennis Association. Their presence at the Wimbledon tournament is in a Official Capacity, and as such is usually announced well ahead of time.

I would expect the WessexsYorks, CambridgesPhillips/Tindalls, the other Kentsto all make a appearance over the 2 week tournament. Their appearance will most likely NOT be announced ahead of time, as their roles there is not in an official capacity.

In addition to the British Royal Family, expect some of their extended family, (I.e. Middletons, Camilla's sister, etc), as well as a few foreign royals.

The Royals almost always sit in the Royal Box at Centre Court. The day's matches in the Centre Court usually begin at 1 PM.
