The Royal Family attend Men’s Wimbledon Final to see Roger Federer take on Marin Čilić

Members of The Royal Family are attending the Men’s Final of The Championships, Wimbledon today to see Roger Federer take on Marin Čilić.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are seated in the Royal Box to watch the match along with the Duke of Kent.

The Duchess of Cambridge is Patron of Wimbledon after taking over the patronage last year from Her Majesty The Queen.

The Duke of Kent has been President of Wimbledon for almost 50 years and is expected to present the trophy to whoever wins today’s match.

Also in the Royal Box are Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Gloucester.

Prince and Princess Michael’s son, Lord Frederick Windsor joins his parents alongside his wife, Sophie Winkleman.

The Duke of Kent’s eldest son, the Earl of St Andrews is also present alongside the Countess of St Andrews.

Overseas royalty is also enjoying the tennis in the shape of Prince Albert of Monaco.

Non-royals taking their seats in the Royal Box include Prime Minister Theresa May, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, actors Eddie Redmayne & Hugh Grant, and golfer Justin Rose.

Switzerland’s Roger Federer is hoping to make history today by being the first man to win eight Wimbledon titles.

He equalled Pete Sampras’ record of seven titles in 2012 after beating British Number One, Andy Murray.

Croatian Marin Čilić is hoping to stop Federer in his tracks and take the Wimbledon glory.

The 28-year-old, who won the 2014 US Open, is seven years Federer’s junior and is seen to be the underdog in the championship.

However, this does not mean he can be discounted. Yesterday, Spaniard Garbiñe Muguruza won the Women’s Wimbledon Final against Venus Williams.

Spain’s former Monarch, King Juan Carlos, watched from the Royal Box as Muguruza became the first Spanish player to win Wimbledon since 1994.

Following the win, the Duke of Kent presented Muguruza with the winner’s trophy.
