Catherine & Sophie attend Wimbledon semifinals…appearing on Serena Williams’ Snapchat!

When Wimbledon is on the calendar we all know it is only a matter of time before we see Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in the Royal Box.

This year she surprised us by attending the Women’s Semifinal matches, and was was joined by Sophie, Countess of Wessex, another tennis fan.


The Royals enjoyed the competition and watched as Serena and Venus Williams each faced off in a semi-final match. Sadly it will not be an all Williams final as Venus Williams lost her match to Angelique Kerber.

But the biggest news that may have come out of the day was not the tennis match.  It was not Kate’s enjoyable facial expressions – it was Serena getting Catherine and Sophie on Snapchat after the event.

No telling what the Duchess and Countess were really thinking but they seemed to enjoy themselves, and besides…it’s Snapchat, it’ll disappear in 24 hours, right? Sorry ladies I think this one is permanent.

Catherine also met the ball boys and girls before the match.

It has been rumoured, but not confirmed, that Kate will take over The Queen’s support of Wimbledon, as the All England Lawn and Tennis Club’s patron.


The Duchess of Cambridge also revealed that Prince George, almost 3, loves tennis and even has his own racket. She also shared that she plays with William but finds that due to his being left-handed he is a frustrating opponent.
