The Duchess of Cambridge hinted that Prince George could be a future Wimbledon star when she revealed that he has a racket and is already playing tennis.

Kate also said she plays tennis with William - but he is "frustrating" to play against as he is left-handed.

The Duchess met players, ball boys and girls and members of the armed and emergency services as she arrived at Wimbledon for ladies' semi-finals day.

She was greeted by the chairman of the All England Club, Philip Brook, at the players' entrance, before being introduced to staff and officials on the players' lawn.

She told Briton Greg Rusedski, who is here in the men's invitational doubles, that George has already taken an interest in the game, despite being just two years old.

Rusedski said after meeting her: "She talked about George, her little boy, playing tennis."

Asked what she said, Rusedski said: "He's got a racket and he enjoys playing tennis, and obviously she plays with William...

"So they obviously enjoy the sport very much."
