Cleared Cliff Richard back at Wimbledon as Pippa wows the crowd

By Nina Massey

Sir Cliff Richard was among a host of famous faces who turned up to watch play on the opening day of Wimbledon.

The 75-year-old singer wore a cream summer suit to the Championship and was spotted near the Royal Box.

A regular at SW19, the entertainer is not believed to have been seen at the tournament last year - reportedly saying that he did not want to detract attention from the tennis after historical sex abuse allegations were made against him.

Sir Cliff, who was in the crowd to see Novak Djokovic play Britain's James Ward, always strongly denied the allegations.

Earlier this month, South Yorkshire Police announced he would face no further action over the claims.

Pippa Middleton was also in attendance, dressed in a cream floral printed dress with a ruffle shoulder detail and dipped hem.

She sat with her brother James and enjoyed the tennis through sunglasses.

A keen tennis fan, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister is a regular at the Championship - making appearances ever since the Royal wedding in 2011.

Also present were Sir Jackie and Lady Stewart and actress Rebel Wilson.

Meanwhile, Britain's James Ward crashed out of the Wimbledon men's singles in straight sets after losing to defending champion Djokovic.

The world number 177 later revealed he had voted to leave in the EU referendum.
