British Royal Family

Duchess Catherine makes her Snapchat debut with Serena Williams

The young royal is certainly proving she's very fashionable when it comes to technology.

Duchess Catherine has been credited with giving the monarchy a truly modern update, but her latest move is definitely a first.
The tech-savvy Duchess of Cambridge just made her very first appearance on Snapchat at Wimbledon.
Tennis star Serena Williams couldn’t believe her luck while meeting the mother-of-one and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, at the grand slam tournament so she decided to capture it on film.
And what better way to get the message out to millions of people, than to post it on Snapchat!
Check out Serena going total fan girl on Duchess Kate in the snapchat video below. Post continues.
And instead of saying cheese, Serena chose something much more regal: “I’m with Royalty!” she said, beaming.
Duchess Catherine looked incredibly amused by the encounter, roping Sophie, Countess of Wessex in for the photo at the last minute.
The Duchess took time out to meet with many people on her day out at the tennis.
And the military personnel looked almost as thrilled as Serena!
Serena gushed about the meeting later.
"It was really nice to meet with them," she confessed. "I actually didn’t know they were both here.
"It was really cool, we just had a chat about the matches.
"I was surprised - it was a good thing that I did not see that they were there, maybe I would have gotten a little nervous. But yeah, it was really cool."
The Duchess and the Countess had a marvellous day out together.
And Kate's look was glamorous as always.
Before the meeting, Kate had been in the royal box to watch Serena play, where she was surrounded by other celebrities keen to watch the match.
Right behind the young royal, was Barry Gibb of Bee Gees fame. Also in attendance were Downton Abbey’s Dame Maggie Smith and Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner, aka Sansa Stark.
Dame Maggie likes a bit of tennis!
Meanwhile Sansa... we mean Sophie, doesn't look too amused!
Meanwhile, the dress that Kate rocked for the occasion will be familiar to many Australians.
The canary yellow outfit by designer Roksanda made its first appearance at the Sydney Opera House when she and Princes William and George visited Australia.
We recognise that dress! On the left is the dress in Sydney, and on the right is Wimbledon.
The Duchess has long been a fan of recycling her fashions.
Just this year, she's recycled dresses she wore at Princess Charlotte's christening, Zara Tindall's wedding and various other fancy occasions.
We love a royal who knows how to live frugally!
