The Patron's Picnic: The Duchess of Cambridge welcomes children to her garden

As the royals tend to do, Middleton usually keeps it pretty low-key with her makeup, favoring a look with products and shades that enhance her natural features: eyeliner and mascara, a bit of blush, a lip color that's more rosy than red.

The 15-year-old Gauff has made waves at Wimbledon after becoming the youngest player in the professional era to qualify for the main draw before beating Venus Williams and 2017 semi-finalist Magdalena Rybarikova to reach the third round.

Adding fuel to rumours of a rift between the two Duchesses, Catherine was the only royal to appear at the tennis yesterday.

She was spotted taking her seat at an outside court at Wimbledon where British player Harriet Dart was in action.

Clarke said she felt bad and lost sleep over the last-minute swap, but couldn't pass up playing with Gauff. The Belgian reached the last 16 here previous year, upsetting defending champion Garbine Muguruza on the way, and she has a powerful swinging serve.

However, Kate did return to the royal box at Centre Court later in the day to watch Tatjana Maria play Angelique Kerber, where she was sat with Wimbledon Chairman Philip Brook.

Kate, who is a regular fixture at Wimbledon and cheered Roger on this week, is known for her love for tennis, and is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, a patronage she took over from the Queen.

She's due to watch British number one Johanna Konta play Romania's Ana Bogdan on Court 1.

Among the famous faces at Wimbledon on Tuesday were former cricketer Geoffrey Boycott actor Will Poulter, former children's presenter Baroness Floella Benjamin, ex-world heavyweight champion David Haye and television presenter Melanie Sykes. She annually attends an worldwide tennis tournament.

The Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles as she was joined by two good friends, Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong - and they didn't sit in the royal box! "That sounds very exciting", he said.
