The reason the other royal kids were not at Wimbledon alongside Prince George

The reason the other royal kids were not at Wimbledon alongside Prince George

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were joined by their eldest child Prince George at Wimbledon on Sunday 10 July, marking the first time he’s attended the popular sporting event.

Kate, 40, and Prince William, also 40, brought their eight year old son along to watch the Men’s Final, but left their two youngest children, Princess Charlotte, six, and four year old Prince Louis at home.

It appears that dad-of-three William wanted George, who turns nine on 22 July, to follow in his own footsteps, as he first attended Wimbledon when he was the same age alongside his late mother Princess Diana.

However, some royal fans have been wondering why George attended the final while Charlotte and Louis stayed at home.

Louis is currently too young to be allowed into Wimbledon as he is only four years old, and the event only allows children over the age of five to attend in order to minimise disruption.

The reason behind Charlotte’s absence is yet to be revealed, but it appears that George is a keen sports fan like his parents, after he was spotted at the Euros 2020 final last year and back in February he joined Kate and William at the rugby at Twickenham too.

The young prince appeared to enjoy his day at Wimbledon, and could be seen laughing and watching intently alongside Prince William as they sat in the front row at the royal box.

Mum-of-three Kate is an avid tennis fan and has attended a number of matches at this year’s event over recent days.

On Saturday 9 July, she presented Elena Rybakina with her first Wimbledon trophy after the 23 year old beat Ons Jabeur to claim victory in the women’s finals.

While she attended Saturday’s match alone, earlier on in the week she and William headed to Wimbledon for a day out together, with the duo watching as British number one Cameron Norrie scored a quarter-final victory on Tuesday.

The Cambridges opted for matching blue outfits for the outing, with Kate looking glamorous in a blue polka dot gown while William donned a light blue shirt and a contrasting navy blue tie.

Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, were also in attendance on Tuesday, but the foursome were unable to sit together.

However, as soon as Carole caught Kate’s eye she playfully stuck her tongue out at both the Duchess and her husband, leaving them both in stitches.

Kate and her parents, along with her younger sister Pippa, 38, are all known to be avid tennis fans and have been spotted at Wimbledon together on a number of occasions over the years.
