In cute snaps the family were pictured cheering for 20-year-old Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz’s after he beat seven-time champ Novak Djokovic.

Charlotte‘s first visit to the Royal Box on Centre Court was action-packed as the athletes played out a full five sets.

The Princess, eight, sat in between mum and eldest brother George, nine.

The siblings, who both play tennis, sat and giggled together as they watched in awe.

Many viewers have since pointed out the royals broke an ancient rule to enjoy the spectacle.

A time-old tradition states kids can attend Wimbledon, but only if they’re quiet, and are not allowed in the Royal Box.

However, an exception has been made for the Firm over the last few years.

Other rules for the box include women not being able to wear hats, so they don’t block the view, and visitors must dress smartly.

Despite the relaxed rules for the family, children under the age of five are still not allowed at Wimbledon – which explains Prince Louis‘ absence.

Despite turning five in April, Prince William and Kate made the decision to keep their youngest at home.

Kate, who is patron of the All England Club, told Ella Ottaway, who runs its young people programme: “This is Charlotte’s first time, George came last year. They’ve been eagerly watching.

“Charlotte you’ve been getting to grips with the scoring.

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

She told ball boy Joel, 16, how Louis has been auditioning for a courtside role.

After their chat, Joel said: “He (Louis) tries to practise the standing and staying serious like us.”

Kate spoke of her admiration for the tough job, telling another ball boy: “You feel it on your legs because you’ve been doing squats all day.”

The three royal siblings all play tennis — with Swiss star Roger Federer even giving George a private lesson.

Kate stunned in a £750 Roland Mouret green dress with matching earrings while Will looked dapper in a suit and sunglasses.

George looked just like dad William in a navy suit and striped tie in Wimbledon colours.

Charlotte wore pink sunglasses when the sun came out, and had her hands on her head after the unbelievable game.

Wills also introduced George to James Bond actor Daniel Craig, seated a few rows behind.
