Kate Middleton upcoming Wimbledon attendance calls for ‘flexibility’ | Pro Hub of News

Kate Middleton is expected to attend Wimbledon in her role as the patron of the Lawn Tennis Association, confirmed by Buckingham Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge will be present at the Lawn Tennis Association President’s Lunch and at the Championships held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in Wimbledon, according to reports.

Debbie Jevans, chair of AELTC, expressed optimism about Middleton potentially presenting the trophies as the Club’s patron, while emphasizing that her health and recovery remain the top priority.

“We’re hopeful that the Duchess of Cambridge will be able to present the trophies as our patron, but her health and recovery are paramount,” Jevans told Telegraph Sport. “We are prepared to be flexible and supportive, depending on her situation.”

Regarding alternative plans if Middleton is unable to attend, Jevans stated, “We will assess closer to the time who would be the appropriate person to present the trophies, if necessary.”

Emily Andrews, a royal expert, mentioned to Grazia magazine, “Her treatment is ongoing and will continue for the next few months, but it’s understood she would like to attend the Wimbledon tennis tournament — a role she cherishes — if she feels well enough to do so.”

The plans underscore the importance of flexibility and consideration for Middleton’s health as the event approaches.
