Yesterday, the Daily Mail‘s Richard Kay revealed that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge accepted an honorary membership at the prestigious All England Club. Her Royal Highness is a keen tennis fan, having attended several Wimbledon matches at the historic club.
“The Duchess was pleased to accept the kind offer, particularly given her interest in tennis,” a royal aide said. Catherine is already an honorary member of the Queen’s Club in West London.
Some say she may be offered the position of club president once its current holder, the Duke of Kent, 77, steps down.
The new member will most likely be watching this year’s tournament from Kensington Palace (or the hospital), as she is due to give birth in July.
Wimbledon 2013 kicks off Monday, June 24th.
