Prince George made an appearance at Wimbledon as Serb star Novak Djokovic claimed his seventh SW19 title against Australian ace Nick Kyrgios. Djokovic defended the title in four sets, winning 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6, as he claimed his 21st Grand Slam victory.
Back in 1999, when Pete Sampras defeated fellow American Andrea Agassi to win his seventh Wimbledon title, it was reported the Duchess of Kent was upset after she asked the All England Club if she could invite a young guest.
The 12-year-old guest was reportedly the son of the Duchess’ late friend and she invited him to Wimbledon in a goodwill gesture.
Despite the good intentions, the request was rejected.
SW19 instead opted to uphold its long-standing traditions in the royal box.
One Instagram user said: “Thank you for bringing Prince George.”
Another added: “You look so handsome Georgie.”
A third wrote: “It was beautiful to see George for the first time at Wimbledon.
“Congratulations to the tournament this year, the matches were incredible.”
