Kate Middleton issues first statement ahead of Wimbledon appearance

Princess of Wales Kate Middleton has issued her first public statement ahead of her much-anticipated Wimbledon appearance, breaking her silence with a heartfelt message of gratitude to tennis star Andy Murray as his Wimbledon career comes to an end.

Kate took to X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram stories to release her personal statement. “An incredible #Wimbledon career comes to an end. You should be so very proud Andy Murray,” she wrote. “On behalf of all of us, thank you! C,” the Princess added, signing off with the initial of her name, Catherine.

This statement comes as Wimbledon organizers remain “hopeful” that Kate will make an appearance before the tournament concludes on July 14.

Speaking to the Daily Beast about Kate Middleton’s much-anticipated public appearance since Trooping the Colour, a friend of hers expressed optimism. “It is no secret that she would dearly love to be there, but when you are having chemo, as she herself said, there are good days and bad days. A lot depends on the timing of the treatments.”

The insider continued, noting that Kate made it to Trooping the Colour, “so if she can make Wimbledon, she will.” As the future queen consort, Kate’s presence at Wimbledon is highly anticipated. Her public statement not only underscores her admiration for Andy Murray but also highlights her dedication to maintaining her public engagements despite personal challenges. The Royal Family and fans alike are eager to see her return to the Royal Box on Centre Court, showcasing her unwavering support for British sports.
