British Royal Family

Kate and Wills surprise fans with glorious appearance at Wimbledon men's final

Now here's a sight for sore eyes.

Wimbledon has well and truly delivered the action in 2019 - and we're not just talking about what's unfolded on the court.
Because the royal family shares close ties with the prestigious championship, we're inclined to expect that we'd see some stunning royal appearances take place over the fortnight of matches.
But we can safely say this year's tournament has gone above and beyond, with one final appearance by two very special royals officially warming our hearts and providing the ultimate spectacle.
In the first week of Wimbledon alone we had exciting appearances from Duchess Catherine and Duchess Meghan, who attended on separate days and provided us with plenty of viewing pleasure (their outfits alone were enough to have us ogling!).
Then, none other than Pippa and brother James Middleton kicked off week two by attended matches held on Monday.
By Friday, we'd had the pleasure of seeing Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Zara Tindall and Sophie, Countess of Wessex take the stands of the tennis grounds.
Saturday's women's final was also a true sight to behold, with our new favourite golden trio consisting Kate, Pippa and Meghan attending the whirlwind match between Serena Williams and Simona Halep together.
We genuinely didn't think we could get much better than that - these kinds of royal sightings don't come by nearly as often as we'd like.

But here to provide the ultimate royal spectacle of all is Kate and her husband Prince William, both of whom attended the men's singles final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic on Sunday evening.
Kate, 37, opted for a stunning powder blue Emilia Wickstead dress for the occasion, which she adorned with a beautiful bow-shaped badge featuring Wimbledon's official colours, marking her dedication to the sport as patron of the All-England Club.
Kate's beautiful dress, which featured crepe-style fabric with capped sleeves, was accessorised with a pretty printed clutch and a pair of her stunning pearl drop earrings.

Meanwhile, William opted for a smart grey suit with a light blue shirt.
There's no denying it, they make a very sharp couple!

After a private lunch at the exclusive members club, the pair then joined avid tennis fans in the crowd, taking their seats in the prestigious royal box.
A known tennis fan, Kate proved her passion for the sport might well be in her genes, as the royal couple were joined by her family, including Mum Carole Middleton, her sister Pippa, her brother James and his girlfriend Alizee Thevenet.
Like Kate, both Pippa and Carole have a flair for fashion. Pippa opted for a gorgeous pink floral dress while Carole wore a beautiful blue printed dress.

The match was certainly an exciting one, with the game lasting a whopping four hours and 57 minutes, the longest in tournament history.
And the match certainly provided plenty of action, with crowds often on their feet to cheer on the brave performance of both Federer and Djokovic.

In the end, the legendary battler Djokovic reigned supreme, taking out the match after a gruelling fifth set that ended in a tense tie-break.
And there ready to congratulate the Serbian was Kate Middleton herself, who had the incredibly special honour of presenting the trophy to the winner.
Sharing the special picture to the official Kensington Palace Instagram account, fans flocked to the page to share their excitement in seeing the royal's collaboration with the historic tournament.
Kensington Palace added that both Kate and William had taken time to meet some of the people who work hard to make the tournament a success.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thanked the ballboys, ballgirls, staff and referees for their tireless work in making this year's tournament a huge success," the caption read.
