Wimbledon 2017 - Royal Attendance


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. 

Royal attendance is not usually announced in advance. Except for Duchess of Gloucester (President of LTA& Duke of Kent (Presidents of Wimbledon), and occasionally Duchess Kate (New Patron of LTA & Wimbledon) & Duchess Camilla.

Royals to look out for:  
Cambridges, Camilla, WessexsYorks, Phillips/TindallsGloucesters, Duke of Kent, Prince & Princess Micheal of Kent

Expect some of their extended family, (i.e. Middletons, Camilla's sister, etc), as well as a few foreign royals. Maybe, Meghan Markle? She is a fan of tennis and has attended Wimbledon in the past (before her relationship with Harry, and never in the Royal Box). Hopefully, she will bring Prince Harry along to his 1st Wimbledon Match.
