The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the royal representatives at Wimbledon on Sunday afternoon, turning up to watch Roger Federer take on Croatian Marin Cilic in the men's final.

The royal couple are well acquainted with tennis ace Federer, who became a friend of Pippa Middleton after the pair met at last year's tournament.

Pippa was also spotted at Wimbledon to cheer on her pal, and sat next to her mum Carole and brother James at the match.

Kate, who wore a cap-sleeved floral dress and carried a tote bag by British designer Victoria Beckham, and her husband Prince William weren't the only royals to grace Wimbledon on Sunday, as Prince Albert of Monaco also took his seat to watch the much anticipated final.
