The Princess of Wales ran into a young royal fan during her most recent Wimbledon visit

Princess Kate’s interaction with young fan at Wimbledon captures fans’ hearts

The Princess of Wales unexpectedly arrived at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club earlier this week, igniting excitement surrounding Wimbledon.

Princess Catherine, 41, channeled Princess Diana by dressing in a vintage-inspired mint blazer from upscale label Balmain to recreate one of her most well-known looks from the 1980s. A silky pleated skirt and clean white Gianvito Rossi heels helped the royal upgrade her retro look.

Despite the fact that the wife of Prince William won Wimbledon fashion with her flawless mint ensemble, an unseen moment from the day also captured the hearts of royal admirers.

In a video posted by @katemiddletonprincessofwales, an Instagram account with thousands of followers, the royal is heard speaking to a young boy after he exclaims, “Hi Princess!”

The royal pauses before approaching the young boy and asking him for his name as she approached Centre Court before speaking to him.

The Princess of Wales took a keen interest in the young boy’s toy submarine, praising it as “very cool” before wishing him a nice day and waving good-bye.

The open exchange has been dubbed “charming” by royal fans, who took to social media as soon as the post began to circulate online. One admirer exclaimed, “You can tell she has children. The difference she made to that child’s day is going to last a lifetime. I like how she inquired about his fun toy.

“Such a sweet and caring Princess who is always aware of everything going on in her immediate surroundings. Such a reward,” added a third supporter.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, the Princess’s three children, who have not yet finished school for the summer, did not attend Wimbledon with her.

However, George, the eldest child of Prince William and Princess Catherine, is an enthusiastic tennis player who has taken lessons from Wimbledon record-holder and tennis legend Roger Federer.

Roger, a close friend of the Princess of Wales, called Prince George a “cute boy” and expressed his hope that as he grew older, he would continue to be passionate about playing sports.

His mother has always enjoyed their tennis, so I love to see them interested in sports. I’m hoping he’ll continue to say that in a few years,” Roger said.

The eight-time Wimbledon champion has since given up competing, but he still holds a legendary status after joining the Princess this week to watch matches from the royal box.
