The Duchess of Cambridge recently explained in a video that the upcoming tennis tournament will bring a lot of real action for the fans worldwide.
“Three-hundred-fifty days, 14 hours, and 12 minutes between the last ball hit and when the next was meant to be. Over the years, your support has shaped this historic event. No matter the time of day nor the names on the scoreboard, you have always been there come rain or shine.” Kate said.
The beautiful Duchess said that this year although the things and situations are pretty different yet spectators certainly get to wait, watch and celebrate the sport all over again. “So, when the time is right, and we open the gates, we will be back again, and it will have been worth the wait.” She told
As we know the Championship Tournament was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, this is for the first time the popular tennis tournament has been canceled since World War 2.
“Being able to go to Wimbledon and be part of an amazing atmosphere is special”- Duchess Of Cambridge
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton is now the Patron of the All England Tennis Club and this club had hosted Wimbledon, in 2016, taking over from The Queen.
Kate shared in an interview with the BBC back in the year 2017 that Wimbledon was a key part of her childhood memories.
“I was really taken by Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, Goran Ivanisevic and Steffi Graf. Those are my first memories. Being able to go to Wimbledon and be part of an amazing atmosphere is special. It inspires young people, including myself. Every time Wimbledon is on, I am thinking, ‘Yes, I could do the same,’ and get out the racket. Sadly, not the same results.” Kate told.
Kate has been quite active socially and has been attending Wimbledon matches every year as a prestigious member of the Royal Family. However, she refrained from being the same in 2013 as she was expecting her baby at that time.
Last year, she presented the Wimbledon trophy for the first time, to men’s titles’ to the fifth time winner Novak Djokovic. The Wimbledon Tennis tournament is all set to take place from 28 June to 11 July next year.
