Pippa dazzled in a yellow summer dress as she arrived with husband James Matthews, whom she married in 2017.

And Pixie Lott stunned in tennis, arriving alongside big names including radio star Chris Evans and TV host Declan Donnelly.

Sir David Attenborough was also among the crowds to watch as the three biggest names of the "golden age" of men's tennis battle it out for a spot in the final.

Film stars including Hugh Grant, Steve Carell and Jude Law were also pictured smiling as they headed to their VIP seats.

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, golfer Nick Faldo, Leona Lewis and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were among the other big names to take their seats in the Royal Box.

David Beckham also returned to the action after his mum to a day at the women's semi-finals yesterday.

Stars flocked to Center Court this afternoon to watch as top seed Novak Djokovic faced off against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut.

The game will then be followed by the much-anticipated match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – the first time they've faced off at Wimbledon since their epic 2008 final.

Pippa's visit comes a day before her sister Kate will head to Wimbledon to watch the women's final with Meghan Markle.

And the Duchess of Cambridge, who is the Patron of All England Lawn Tennis, will head to the men's final with husband Prince William on Sunday.

It's the first time the royal women have stepped out, just the two of them, since they joined crowds at center court together last year.

Roberto Bautista is the underdog today and was so sure he would not make it to the second week of the tournament he decided to book a holiday to Ibiza for his work.

"I had planned to be in Ibiza right now," he said following his quarter-final victory.

But he added: "It feels better to be here in London."

All six of his stags have cut short their Ibiza holiday to cheer him on against Djokovic.
