A look at the Royals at Wimbledon over the past decade

Coveted as one of the most prestigious sporting traditions in history, Wimbledon is known to draw in high-status spectators from across the United Kingdom and beyond.

Perhaps the most highly-anticipated attendees each year are the members of the royal family, who are known to sit at Centre Court among well-connected celebrities, socialites and other attendees.

The past four years have shown the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William in highly-animated spirits, with Kate stepping out each year in conservatively-cut day dresses in unpredictable bold colors and prints.

This year's tournament will bring the excitement of potentially seeing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attend with their son, Archie Harrison, for the first time. 

Even Queen Elizabeth II has been known to get in on the action, and tennis and royals fans alike are waiting to see if she’ll stop by the courts for a quick match.

While we wait for the festivities to begin on July 1, here’s a look back at the royals attending Wimbledon over the last decade:
