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

And Pixie Lott stunned in white for the 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 treating his mum to a day at the women’s semi-finals yesterday.

Stars flocked to Centre Court this afternoon to watch as top seed Novak Djokovic faced off against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut – beating him 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to book a spot in Sunday’s final.

But all eyes were on the much-anticipated match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal which saw the Swiss champ advance to the final, beating the Spaniard 7-6(3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

It was 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 then 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 centre 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 stag do.

“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.

A spokesman for the Met Office said Wimbledon attendees could expect some sunshine in the morning with a few showers from about 9am onwards.

“The showers will continue into the first part of the afternoon with a 20% chance of it causing some disruption,” he said.

“It will clear away to the middle of the afternoon leaving the rest of the day dry and bright.

“It will be slightly cooler and breezier day than the last few days with a maximum temperature of 24C.”
