Prince William and Duchess Catherine thrilled British tennis fans by making a visit Monday to Wimbledon. According to People, William smiled at their enthusiastic ovation as they took their seats in the Royal Box at Centre Court — even blushing a little at the level of adulation.

A royal spokesman said the couple were at Wimbledon “privately.” Kate, 29, is a well known fan of the sport and plays regularly, while William — “a keen player,” People said — used to visit the tournament often as a boy with his mother, Princess Diana.

The couple is in London preparing for a 11-day tour of Canada and Los Angeles set to begin Thursday.
