Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to watch Wimbledon men’s singles final

William and Kate will watch Serbia’s Novak Djokovic take on South Africa’s Kevin Anderson on Centre Court.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend Wimbledon on Sunday to watch the men’s singles final.

William and Kate will watch Serbia’s Novak Djokovic take on South Africa’s Kevin Anderson on Centre Court.

Anderson, 32, comes into the match after a marathon semi-final lasting six hours and 36 minutes against John Isner on Friday.

Three-time former champion Djokovic, 31, took five-and-a-quarter hours – over two days – to secure victory over Rafael Nadal.

This year’s Championships are set to finish in the same heat they started, with the Met Office forecasting highs of 27C for SW19.

Kate also attended the tournament on Saturday, with the Duchess of Sussex as her guest.

Meghan was cheering on her good friend Serena Williams as she played Angelique Kerber.

But the American lost in straight sets, failing in her bid for an eighth ladies’ singles title.

Also expected in the royal box are Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip, and actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne.
