Kate Middleton blows kiss during emotional Wimbledon performance

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed a rare emotion in public as they made a surprising move at Wimbledon.

The Duchess of Cambridge blew a loving kiss on her parents Carole and Michael Middleton as they took their seats in the Royal Box at Wimbledon this morning (AEST).

Kate Middleton, 40, and Prince William, who were also greeted by comedian and author David Walliams, looked on cheerfully as they watched Wimbledon holder Novak Djokovic take on Jannik Sinner on Center Court.

Prince William was also spotted putting on a highly animated display, clenching his teeth during a tense serve, before bursting into laughter with his wife.

In a surprise move, the royal couple then sneaked into Court No. 1 – away from the Royal Box – to enjoy the epic five-set battle in which Britain’s Cameron Norrie reached the semi-finals in wacky scenes.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Court No. 1, alongside Tim Henman, during the third set, after witnessing Djokovic’s comeback win over Jannik Sinner – and her husband arrived in the fourth just as Norrie turned the match around.

His win makes him only the fourth British man to reach a Wimbledon singles semi-final in the open era.

The royals were seen in some of the photos, letting their emotions run wild as they shouted in support of Norrie.

Previously, the Duke and Duchess were spotted waving to fans as they crossed the bridge from the Millennium Building to Center Court after entering the SW19 grounds through the players entrance.

The frugal Kate looked quintessentially chic, sporting an elegant display in a $2500 recycled Alessandra Richn blue polka-dot midi dress, which she first wore to a local street party to celebrate the Queen’s platinum anniversary.

The mum of three completed her ensemble with a pair of white slingback heeled sandals from the same designer and matching Mulberry handbag.

Kate wore her long brown locks loose and kept her makeup natural, with a hint of blush and a pink lip. Meanwhile, Prince William looked neat in a light gray plaid. suit which he paired with a navy blue tie and matching dress pants.

Kate – who is a patroness of the Lawn Tennis Association – is a fixture at Wimbledon.

Now Cameron Norrie really is a true British tennis hero – because he has put the nation through the wringer in the traditional painful way.

Like Andy Murray or Tim Henman in their splendor, Norrie won a nerve-wracking, chaotic Wimbledon marathon from David Goffin to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final, against Novak Djokovic on Friday.

The match lasted three-and-a-half hours, five sets, and featured two cabinet resignations in between, as Norrie backed out of a set-down twice to take the most important win of his life, with a 3- 6 7-5 2-6 6-3 7-5 behind.

Norrie, 26, said: “I’m so happy to get through. It didn’t go the way I wanted, I didn’t feel well, David played very well, but thanks to the crowd I managed to stay as patient as possible. It was all just adrenaline.

“Winning a race like this gives me flashbacks to all the hard work and sacrifices I’ve had to make – it certainly paid off.

“It’s only going to get harder now – I’m going to enjoy the semi-finals.”

Norrie is seeded ninth, but until this Wimbledon, had never reached the fourth round of a Major, or been properly lauded by his adopted nation.
