The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge watched Andy Murray storm into the Wimbledon semi-finals and remain on course for another SW19 title.

William and Kate were in the royal box on Centre Court as Murray beat big server Vasek Pospisil in straight sets.

They stood and applauded after the Scot sealed victory to set up a clash with seven-time champion Roger Federer tomorrow.

The Duchess, wearing a bright red dress, and the Duke were joined in the royal box by adventurer Bear Grylls, Olympic rower Sir Matthew Pinsent and Britain's greatest female distance runner Paula Radcliffe.

Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Countess of Wessex and Prince Michael of Kent were among the royal guests on Centre Court.

David Beckham was also in the crowd with his son Romeo.

Asked if he enjoyed playing in front of royals, Murray joked: "He (Beckham) wasn't a royal was he?", before adding: "There's been great support and it's great they were able to come today."
