Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon Appearance to Significantly Boost the Nation

The highly anticipated Wimbledon tennis tournament is back and the question on everyone’s mind is whether Princess Kate will be there this year. Legendary former royal correspondent Charles Rae has weighed in on the matter, saying that Wimbledon organizers would “love” to welcome the princess back.

Speaking to The Sun’s Royals editor Matt Wilkinson, Rae explained: “I think people at Wimbledon would love to have Catherine back because it would increase the audience and encourage people to come there.” However, he acknowledged the uncertainty surrounding her return, saying: “The problem is when we found out about her cancer, a lot of people put forward dates for her return, but we just don’t know when she’s going to be back.”

It is not yet known whether the Princess of Wales, who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, will attend the two-week sporting event. Traditionally, the tennis enthusiast attends many matches in the royal box and then presents the champions with their trophies at the end of the tournament.

Rae expressed hope that Kate would be able to compete in “one or two days at Wimbledon” but acknowledged that her health and recovery had to take priority. “If she doesn’t, well, we’ll have to be patient because I’m hopeful that she’ll be back one day,” he added.

All England Club chairman Debbie Jevans has confirmed that the club remains “flexible” about who will present the trophies to this year’s Wimbledon champions. “We hope that The Princess of Wales will be able to present the trophies as patron of the club, but her health and recovery is the priority,” Jevans told Telegraph Sport.

Since marrying Prince William, Kate Middleton has rarely missed Wimbledon, with the exception of 2013, when she was pregnant with Prince George. During an appearance in the BBC documentary “Sue Barker: Our Wimbledon” in 2017, the princess spoke of her lifelong love of the sport, saying: “It’s a huge part of the English summer, and I think it really inspires young people, it inspired me when I was younger to get involved in the game.”

As Kate Middleton continues her battle with cancer, the tennis world and royal fans are eagerly awaiting news of her potential Wimbledon appearance. The tournament is scheduled to run from Monday, July 1 to Sunday, July 14, with the women’s singles final on the last Saturday and the men’s singles final on the final day.
