In a rare personal message, Kate said: “An incredible #Wimbledon career comes to an end. You should be so incredibly proud @andy_murray. From all of us, thank you! C.”

Andy was scheduled to play in a mixed doubles match with Emma Raducanu on Saturday, but the female athlete withdrew due to “stiffness” in her wrist.

Both Andy and his brother Jamie lost their doubles matches on Thursday, bringing Andy’s Wimbledon career to an impressive end.

Andy Murray was emotional during his last match and at the end he was treated to a spectacular tribute in the form of a montage of highlights from his career. As Andy watched, he was cheered on by the crowd, his wife and their two daughters.

Sue Barker came out of retirement to write about Murray one last time. She asked him what’s next in his life and he joked “Well, they’ve been waking my wife and me up at 5am for eight years now, so they’ll keep doing it.”

All joking aside, he said about his family: “They’re great, I’m looking forward to that, spending more time at home.”

Princess Catherine is the Royal Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC). She usually attends matches and presents trophies to the Wimbledon champions.

Kate is a keen amateur athlete and told Sue Barker in a 2017 BBC documentary that watching Wimbledon “was a huge part of me growing up. It’s such an essential part of the English summer, and I think it really inspires youngsters, myself, it inspired me when I was younger to get involved in the game. It hasn’t changed either, I think that’s what’s great.”

Kate stayed home for her treatment this year, but her parents Michael and Carole were present on the fourth day of Wimbledon.
