The restriction is usually severely enforced, but in recent years, exceptions have been made for young royals. Last year, Prince George beat the record by watching the final between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios.

He also violated another rule at the moment by announcing his support for Djokovic.

This year’s event was attended by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as well as their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales. Prince Louis, their brother, was nowhere to be seen.

“It’s Charlotte’s first time, George came last year,” Princess Kate told Ella Ottaway, Children, Young People, and Families Coordinator at Wimbledon.

“They’ve been eagerly watching. Charlotte you’ve been getting to grips with the scoring, haven’t you?

“Louis was very upset he wasn’t coming today.”

Regarding George’s earlier rule-breaking, Daily Express Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer told Pandora Forsyth on Royal Roundup: “Someone shouted out to George about who he wanted to win [the match].”

“He [George] appears to say he wanted Djokovic to win.”

Royals, according to Richard Palmer, “aren’t supposed to really do that.”

It is commonly known that the royals must remain politically neutral on a variety of issues. It appears that this expectation extends to sporting events.

Children are not permitted to sit in the Royal Box under any circumstances, a condition that is said to have irritated tennis spectators in the past.

The boy was the son of the Duchess’ late friend, she wanted to take the bereaved child out on a special day.

Then, in a statement, club chairman John Curry said, “Because of the demand for space in the royal box, we also ask that, apart from children of the royal family, children are not invited as they exclude other worthy people from attending, many of whom contribute to tennis.”
