Kate Middleton was impatient. After having been forced to follow the Wimbledon tournament from her home in 2020, the Duchess was able to find the sensations of the stands this Friday, July 2. As usual, it is from the royal box that the wife of Prince William admired the players of tennis on the English lawn. The patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club attended several meetings: the double Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares to Nicholas Munroe and Vasek Pospisil, the defeat of Andy Murray against the Canadian Denis Shapovalov but also the incredible victory of Ons Jabeur against the tournament champion in 2017, Garbine Muguruza. And if Kate Middleton did not shy away from her pleasure to find Wimbledon, she did however witness a somewhat disgusting scene which took place in front of her eyes.
Indeed, before playing her match point, the Tunisian tenniswoman felt ill. Ons Jabeur was therefore put on the side of the field, just in front of the royal box where Kate Middleton was, to vomit. “Actually, I have a stomach problem. I have inflammation,” explained the sportswoman after her victory. “It’s been going on for a while. It probably bothers me with the stress.” But nothing to undermine the happiness of the Duchess of Cambridge, who followed these matches alongside former champion Tim Henman. For her return to the Wimbledon stands, she had bet on a casual outfit: an Alessandra Rich polka dot skirt, a Smythe jacket and accessories signed Mulberry and Jimmy Choo. Kate Middleton also visited the Wimbledon kitchen and tried to add the finishing touches to some afternoon tea treats.
