Wimbledon-logoIt was great to see Prince William and his new wife Kate in the royal box at Wimbledon yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at centre court unannounced to watch British number one Andy Murray. He successful got through to the quarter final joining the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

It was wonderful to see the royal support- Kate and Prince William even joined in a Mexican wave with fellow centre court spectators. I thought that Kate looked so stylish, dressed perfectly for Wimbledon in a traditional white outfit.

The tournament is getting more and more exciting as we get closer to the finals at the weekend. Yesterday’s day of play brought some unexpected action as number one in the world and 2010 Wimbledon champion, Nadal suffered an injury to his foot, and sad news for the Williams sisters as both Venus and Serena were out after their matches.

Keep up to date with Wimbledon on BBC channels. Today at Wimbledon is the ladies quarter finals.

Wimbledon is well and truly underway. I am sure that many of you were happy to see Andy Murray cruise through to third round yesterday making him one step closer to the grand slam final.

Although the weather has been a little unpredictable, and the Wimbledon roof has had to be used. I thought that it would be great chance to share a lovely recipe that is perfect for Wimbledon celebrations- rain or shine.

Summertime Champers and Jelly is the ultimate in summer indulgence. I love to include summer fruits when I make this summer time treat; strawberries would be great, and of course very in tune with Wimbledon.

This charming recipe will go down perfectly at the Wimbledon final; I’ll be making a ‘practice’ portion this weekend too… Enjoy!

Rory McIloryIt’s a bright day for sport as Wimbledon starts today and golf fans will be basking in glory after Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy made a record breaking victory at the US Open last night.

I am so pleased for 22 year old Rory, who is now the youngest US Open champion since Bobby Jones is 1923. His record breaking win saw him score an unbelievable -16 under par score. It’s great to see him succeed so marvellously since a tiresome defeat at the Masters earlier this year.

Rory dedicate the victory to his Dad, which I can only presume was the most fantastic Father’s Day gift. What a fabulous victory for the Rory dubbed the ‘next Tiger Woods’- Congratulations!

On this side of the Atlantic players and spectators have got their fingers crossed for sunshine at Wimbledon, which starts today. The oldest tennis tournament in the world, and the only grand slam played on grass is a favourite of mine as it’s a sure way of telling that summer is in full swing.

wimbledonI’m not edging my beats on who will win this early on. Although it would be great for Andy Murray to triumph he’s got some stiff competition from the likes of Nadal and Federer.

Of course, Wimbledon means lots of traditional British tea’s… strawberries and cream, and we mustn’t forget the champagne.

If you’re off to Wimbledon have a fabulous time. I would recommend having a read of the official Wimbledon website which has some handy hint including how to get there and a great easy access guide for disabled guest. Enjoy.
