    • Give them a break, it is nice to have different photo’s and the public appreciate seeing who is at the tennis

    • Yes everyone feels good when we see them. The players too! They feel great that the royals have graced their presence. Go Serena!

  2. Looking at the photo of the Duke and Duchess at the end of that post, I hope she loves how her father-in-law looks because in that photo William is so like him. Not that I mind I think Charles is a far more intellligent, caring person than people give him credit for.

  3. I think William was over dressed in suit and tie in a sporting event, smart casual would’ve been better.

  4. I agree Helen Sutton! Just look at them, enjoy their photos and for our sake leave them alone. It not necessary for the public to have an opinion on everyone………
