Members of the royal family and celebrities alike trooped to the royal box to watch their favorites at the latest tennis tournament at Wimbledon. The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, after meeting with some wheelchair athletes along several ballgirls and ballboys at the players’ lawn, proceeded to the members’ dining room for a private lunch, before heading to the royal box for a front row seat to all the tennis action.

According to the official Wimbledon website, the royal box which contains a total of 74 seats is used to entertain “friends and guests of Wimbledon,” including royals from around the world, tennis stars, celebrities, commercial partners, heads of government, prime ministers and more.

The 71-year-old Duchess, however, was not the only royal attending the highly anticipated tournament. The son of the beautiful Grace Kelly, Prince Albert of Monaco, along with Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who wore a long blue patterned dress were also spotted at the sporting event.

Although her parents were seen at the Wimbledon event, Kate Middleton was not in attendance. The Duchess of Cambridge later went to support her husband, Prince William, as he and his brother, Prince Harry, played in a charity polo match.
