Prince Charles attends Wimbledon
Jun 28, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Prince Charles attended Wimbledon for the first time in 42 years yesterday (27.06.12).
The Prince of Wales was accompanied by his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, at the All England Tennis Club as they took their seats in Centre Court's royal box.
They were joined by TV host Sir Bruce Forsyth and wife Wilnelia as they watched Roger Federer beat Fabio Fognini on the iconic court.
Earlier, Camilla chatted with former finalist Andy Roddick, who said it was 'a lot of fun' to meet the duchess.
He added: 'I got to meet the queen a couple of years ago and these are things you realise you don't get to do very often, they are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. We always forget the magnitude of Wimbledon and who might be watching.'
Charles last visited SW19 in 1970, while his mother Queen Elizabeth attended Wimbledon in 2010. Camilla was a spectator last year as was Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
Catherine - who also goes by her maiden name of Kate Middleton - is rumoured to be planning to visit at some point this year, along with mother Carole and sister Pippa.
