CELEBRITY British royal family
Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, in the Southwest of London, England, since 1877. Royals have been attending the event for years, and indeed they even have arguably the best seats in the house: the Royal Box.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are avid tennis supporters and have been spotted at Wimbledon many times. This year, however, they were overshadowed by a special guest! They were joined by their son, eight-year-old Prince George, for the very first time. The young royal made his debut for arguably the most exciting match of the season: the men's singles final. Reigning champion Novak Djokovic played against Australian underdog, Nick Kyrgios. Kyrgios has a reputation similar to that of John McEnroe. He tends to get into shouting matches with the umpire, use foul language, and has even been fined for throwing things before! No doubt it was an interesting entry into the world of professional tennis for Prince George.
