Queen Camilla attends Wimbledon for the first time in four years

True story: Queen Camilla is a big tennis fan, and over the years, she’s made a point of attending many matches at Wimbledon. While she’s reportedly a huge fan of Rafael Nadal, she’ll go to other players’ matches. Well, after skipping for a few years, Camilla was out today at Wimbledon for the quarterfinal matches on Centre Court. She arrived early to watch the entire women’s match (Ons Jabeur vs. Elena Rybakina) and I would assume that she’ll stay for the men’s quarterfinal, Carlos Alcaraz vs. Holger Rune. Maybe she has a thing for Spanish men – Carlos has been billed as Rafa Jr. (their games are very different though). Still, Camilla has good taste in tennis matches – she chose to go to Wimbledon for some of the most exciting match-ups of the tournament (and she avoided Novak Djokovic, lol). Alcaraz vs. Rune should be amazing and Jabeur-Rybakina was last year’s women’s final.

When Camilla does attend Wimbledon, she usually goes with her sister, and that’s what happened today. Camilla’s sister Annabel Elliot was with her in the Royal Box. Annabel is also one of Camilla’s ladies-in-waiting/companions. Camilla also greeted some of the Wimbledon officials when she arrived and they made a big fuss over her.

By my admittedly haphazard research, this seems to be the first time Camilla has gone to Wimbledon since 2019? I wonder why she skipped it for four years? Is it because of Kate staking her claim on the tournament? Perhaps. I also think it’s interesting that Kate has, thus far, only been to Wimbledon one day. A pretty poor showing from the royal patron. Kate has missed some great matches.

    That second picture…

    😂🤣😂 so that’s what the Russian story was about, Cams is about to stake her claim on Wimbledon tennis this year, watch out Kate you are being out manoeuvred 🤣

    • Jais says:

      It does feel like Camilla is encroaching on Kate’s tennis turf. Technically, Kate and Camilla could have gone on the same day or together. Imagine Camilla, Camilla’s sister and Kate and maybe even throw in Pippa😂. Just saying, it could be that Camilla and Kate do not want to be spending that much time together.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Tit for tat, Kate encroached on the Chelsea Flower Show diverting attention from C&C’s visit so this seems like payback.

    I just finished watching the tail end of the quarterfinal and I realized I consume too much royal news when during the match she just happened to be in the background and I thought that Rottweiler looks like Camilla! Sure enough later they mentioned the Queen was in attendance..that sounded so jarring to me..alas.. she is The Queen

    • Tessa says:

      She still is not monarch. Not in the same category as the monarch Queen Elizabeth II. No replacement for her. Out of respect for his mother, I wish Charles had let the Queen Consort title be the one used.

      • Leslie says:

        I will never get used to calling her “Queen”. For me, there was only one Queen and that was Elizabeth.

      • Cerys says:

        Camilla is titled Queen Camilla whether people like it or not. Consort is her role not her title.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Cerys, I think we all know what the Escort’s role is.

  4. Theresa says:

    What a sour miserable face

    • bubblegum dreams says:

      Damn she looks older at 75 than the Queen did at 95. What is she going to look like at 95, if she makes it to 95.

  5. Lady Esther says:

    Don’t smoke, people. I mean….wow

  6. Rapunzel says:

    I wonder if the Russians&Kate story is connected to this? My tinfoil tiara says Kate loves photo-ops and attending with Cams would’ve been a good one. So why isn’t she there too? Maybe Cams said, “no photo ops with me; I’m going alone” and now Kate is all, “fine, screw Wimbledon then, if I can’t get the headlines” which explains the stories setting up her not attending.

  7. Is she letting Can’t know that she should be at Wimbledon as she is the Patron or some such? Horsilla is trying to convey something here and I’m sure we will find out soon. This is so interesting.

  8. Tessa says:

    I remember when she attended with her sister. That dress is ruined by those stripes. She needs a solid pastel or white color.

  9. Amy Bee says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Kate shows up tomorrow. I’m just reminded that there was only outrage when Meghan took her mother on an engagement.

  10. MSTJ says:

    Is that counted as ‘work’ for her?

  11. Becks1 says:

    Mary Berry!

    I do think this is interesting since Camilla hasn’t attended in a few years and now this year she’s back as we’re getting stories about poor delicate Kate maybe having to hand out a trophy to someone who is from Russia.

    i dunno, maybe she just felt like going today, but its easy to read too much into some of these things.

  12. Flower says:

    The overwhelming sense I get form Chuck & Camilla is that they want to be liked and popular so badly yet can’t seem to compute why the opposite is true.

  13. Ameerah M says:

    That second photo – JUMPSCARE.

  14. Beverley says:

    Beware, Daughters. Your Queen has set an example. This is what too much drinking, conniving, plotting, hating, and smoking does to your face. You’ve been warned.

  15. Cerys says:

    I think Wimbledon became less attractive to Kate once it was classed as work.

  16. Laurie G. says:

    I can’t help it, but whenever I see a picture of her, she looks to me like someone who smells bad. Also, WHY can she not wear a bra that actually fits??

  17. Sugarhere says:

    The most realistic scarecrow I’ve seen in years.

    Not taking care of yourself always catches up with you as you age.
