Royal Family news – Wimbledon sees Kate Middleton not self-isolating as Duchess & Prince William attend ladies final

Kate and William are at the Wimbledon women's singles final on Centre Court as the Duchess comes out of Covid self-isolation.

The duchess wore a green dress, while William donned a light blue suit jacket, light-coloured shirt, dark trousers and tie, with the couple both wearing face masks as they took their seats.

Kate's appearance at Wimbledon follows a period of self-isolation after being in close contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid-19.

Kensington Palace said by Saturday her self-isolation period would have finished, but did not confirm when it officially ended.

Kate is a keen tennis fan and patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, and she has regularly attended the Wimbledon championships since her marriage to William in 2011.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY WIN AWARD FOR ‘ENLIGHTENED DECISION’ TO ONLY HAVE TWO KIDS

    Charity Population Matters said it was recognising the couple with the "Special Award" for reducing their impact on the environment.

    The Sussexes, who quit as senior working royals last year, had baby Lilibet "Lili" Diana on June 4, following the birth of their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6, 2019.

    The UK-based charity, which campaigns to achieve a sustainable population, said the couple were being acknowledged as "a role model for other families".

    A spokesman said: "In choosing and publicly declaring their intention to limit their family to two, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are helping to ensure a better future for their children and providing a role model for other families.

    "Having a smaller family reduces our impact on the Earth, and provides a better chance for all our children, their children and future generations to flourish on a healthy planet.

    "We commend the Duke and Duchess for taking this enlightened decision, and for affirming that a smaller family is also a happy family."

    MEGHAN AND HARRY’S SECRET MESSAGE

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have uploaded a new cryptic message to their supporters urging them to be “compassionate” – after claiming they didn’t feel listened to by the Royals.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s post on their Archewell website could be taken as a subtle dig at the Firm after their bombshell claims that they “didn’t act” on their concerns.

    Meghan, 39, told Oprah Winfrey during their bombshell interview that she sought help after telling Prince Harry she “didn’t want to be alive anymore”.

    But she said she had been told she would not be able to seek help as it “wouldn’t be good for the institution”.

    DUKE OF SUSSEX ACCUSED ROYAL FAMILY OF ‘TOTAL NEGLECT’

    The Duke of Sussex has also accused the Royals of “total neglect” in his Apple TV documentary series, The Me You Can’t See.

    Buckingham Palace announced that they would investigate why Meghan wasn’t given support for mental health problems.

    Meanwhile, the couple’s pleas for stories on their Archewell website have come under scrutiny, after Private Eye revealed that the couple could be using them for commercial gain. 

    For every submission there is a Terms & Conditions section which appears to state that Harry and Meg can benefit from it themselves.

    NUMEROLOGIST PREDICTS BABY NUMBER THREE FOR HARRY & MEGHAN

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are to have a third child – or so their numerology predicts. 

    A leading numerologist, who analyses people’s “numbers” to determine their traits, claims to have worked out exactly what lies ahead for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

    The practise works by matching numbers that represent the letters of a person’s full name, added with a date of birth – and we also have an individual number that will show our traits.

    Heather James, a numerologist for top dating agency Mogul Matchmakers, told Fabulous that they are extremely compatible. 

    She explained: “They definitely have a past life connection. They’ll also work brilliantly in business together. I predict that they will have a third child in three years’ time too – their numbers say it all.”

    PRINCESS PUSHY

    Meghan Markle upset people from the early days of her joining the Royal Family, a royal biographer has claimed.

    Penny Junor claimed palace insiders told her the Duchess of Sussex was “not as charming as she seemed.”

    “I was hearing very bad stories from early on that Meghan was upsetting people,” she told the ITV documentary, Harry & William: What Went Wrong?

    “She was not as charming as she seemed.”

    Junor went on to say that the Duchess’s approach is not just Californian but “showbiz-y, celebrity.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE REACHED OUT TO NAOMI OSAKA

    Tennis ace Naomi Osaka has revealed that Meghan Markle reached out to her after she stepped down from the French Open.

    The Duchess of Sussex is one of many famous faces who reportedly wanted to support the young tennis star after she quit amid the controversy over her press briefings.

    Osaka, 23, said that she had an outpouring of support from people in the public eye including Michelle Obama and fellow sports stars Michael Phelps, Steph Curry and Novak Djokovic.

    Speaking to Time Magazine for an Olympic preview issue, the athlete spoke about her decision to boycott media conferences during the French Open, having tweeted that she found the briefings like “kicking a person while they’re down”.

    And the tennis ace said: “There can be moments for any of us where we are dealing with issues behind the scenes. Each of us as humans is going through something on some level.”

    FOOTBALL FAN WILLIAM WEMBLEY-BOUND FOR ENGLAND’S EURO 2020 SHOWDOWN

    The Duke of Cambridge will be among those hoping to celebrate Euro 2020 glory at Wembley for Sunday’s final.

    William, who is president of the Football Association, has witnessed much of England’s journey through the tournament at close quarters, having cheered the Three Lions to victory at Wembley on multiple occasions already.

    He was present with other dignitaries to celebrate the team’s extra-time victory over Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday, alongside the likes of former England skipper David Beckham and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    The duke was also seen celebrating England’s historic 2-0 victory over Germany in the last 16 stage, where he was joined in the stands by the Duchess of Cambridge and their son Prince George.

    The Aston Villa fan also saw the group D victory over the Czech Republic and the quarter-final demolition of Ukraine, and appears to have worn the same claret-and-blue striped tie to each game.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY QUIT ROYAL DUTY FOR LA TO BE ‘SOCIAL-IMPACT INFLUENCERS’

    Catherine St-Laurent, who quit her top role after less than a year, confirmed the couple stepped back to become “talented and creative leaders” instead.

    The Duke and Duchess vowed they’d continue with a lifetime of “service” – after the Queen confirmed they’d be stripped of their royal titles after Megxit.

    And now Ms St-Laurent, who left a plum job with Bill and Melinda Gates to work as Harry and Meghan’s chief of staff last year, has revealed their plans for the future.

    “I think they have the potential to be very influential leaders in the social-impact space. I look forward to continuing to be a part of that.” she said.

    COMPASSION’ MEANS A LOT TO HARRY AND MEGHAN

    The couple have again urged their fans to submit their own personal stories on their Archewell website after launching the initiative early last month, in what could be seen as a slight to the royals.

    Writing on the website they said: “To us, compassion means more than the dictionary definition.

    “It means listening with open ears to the suffering and celebrations of communities and people beyond ourselves.

    “It means taking the time to understand their perspectives, experiences and needs based on what they say, rather than assuming what they need.” Compassion is at the core of everything we do. We hope you’ll join us in building a better world, one act of compassion at a time.”

    Meghan has previously claimed when she reached out for help with the Palace’s Human Resources team, she was told because she was not a paid employee, she could not be supported.

    HERE’S THE AWKWARD REASON THE QUEEN HAS ONLY BEEN TO WIMBLEDON ONCE

    WHILE the royals are usually regulars at Wimbledon, there’s one key member of the family who often gives it a miss.

    The Queen has only attended the prestigious tennis tournament four times, and all have been official visits.

    It is despite the fact the monarch, 95, was patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for 64 years – a role she passed over to Kate Middleton in 2017.

    According to Hello! Online, she is not a particular fan of the game, and has only ever attended in an official capacity.

    In contrast, Her Majesty has a well-known passion for horse racing, and has attended Royal Ascot almost every year for decades. She last visited Wimbledon in June 2010 when she watched Andy Murray triumph over Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen.

    She was last seen at the tennis tournament in 2010.

    WILLIAM PRAISES NHS STAFF DURING BUCKINGHAM PALACE GARDEN PARTY

    The Duke of Cambridge has paid tribute to the “extraordinary” efforts of NHS staff during the pandemic as he hosted a Buckingham Palace party in their honour.

    William welcomed 28 specially selected health service workers – from nurses and cleaners to care workers and caterers – to the Queen’s official London home for the Big Tea event on the 73rd anniversary of the NHS. He was without wife Kate who is self-isolating after coming into contact with a Covid sufferer, Kensington Palace announced earlier.

    William made up for her absence by chatting to guests for an extra 30 minutes as he moved around five tables laid out in the palace’s garden.

    The Queen gave the Cambridges permission to plan the event at the start of the year, heralding a small return to garden parties that have been cancelled since the pandemic began.

    William told them: “I am delighted you could all come here and thank you. What you guys are doing on a daily basis is just extraordinary, I don’t know how you all keep it up, it’s been truly relentless.”
