Earlier this week it was announced that the Duchess of Cambridge was in self-isolation due to coming into contact with someone who later tested positive for COVID-19. But now Kate has ended her isolation and attended Wimbledon with husband Prince William to watch the ladies’ singles final.
The Duchess looked smart in a green dress as she took her seat in the royal box on Centre Court just before 2 p.m. to watch world number one Ashleigh Barty play number eight seed Karolina Pliskova. After Barty won the nail-biting three set match, Kate stepped onto the court to present the trophies. “What an incredible match and performance by both athletes!”, the Kensington Palace Twitter account posted. “Congratulations @ashbarty on being crowned #Wimbledon champion.”
Today is Kate’s second appearance at the championships this year, and it has already been announced that she will also attend the men’s final tomorrow. She took over from the Queen as Patron of Wimbledon’s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in 2016 when the monarch handed over some patronages in the year she turned 90.
It was also announced yesterday that the Duke of Kent is stepping down from his role as President of the AELTC, a position he has held for more than 50 years. The Queen’s cousin will present the trophies for the final time this weekend. In a statement he described his time in the role as an “honor.”
Kensington Palace announced on Monday that Kate was isolating after coming into contact with COVID-19 but said that she was not experiencing any symptoms. She followed government guidelines which meant that she has to complete a 10-day isolation person, starting from when she was last in contact with the person who tested positive. The Duchess, 39, previously announced that she had received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination on May 28 at London’s Science Museum. She has since had her second dose. She also takes tests twice a week as part of the royal household’s testing program.

William, meanwhile, is unlikely to attend as he prepares to watch England take on Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
Kate had joined her husband and son Prince George, seven, for the Three Lions' win against Germany on June 29 but was absent for Wednesday's semi-final against Denmark.
She was alerted by the app that she had come into contact with someone with the virus after taking her seat in the Royal Box, leaving immediately and missing Britain's Dan Evans taking to court.
Buckingham Palace is yet to confirm whether Kate or George will attend the Euros final.
George was described by fans on Twitter as the team's “lucky charm”, and was likely missing from the semi-finals due to the late kick-off.
With many schools across England allowing pupils to head in a little later in the morning on Monday due to 8pm start, one person joked: “Get George in an England shirt, tell his teacher he won't be in school Monday.”
It was claimed George had “begged” his dad to go to Wembley with him for the Germany game, with them both wearing a matching suit and tie.
Avid tennis fan, Kate, predicted at the start of the tournament that Brits Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray would go all the way.
