The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed the luxury of the Royal Box at Wimbledon today, but Prince George will not be allowed to join them until he is 17.

William sat in the exclusive seats with his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1991 when he was just nine.

But the age restriction is now 17, so he will have a long wait before he can enjoy a father-and-son day at the tennis with 11-month-old George.

Children aged under five are not allowed in any area of the All England Club's show courts.
