Roger Federer is Prince George’s favourite tennis player:
Last week, Federer revealed he had recently played tennis with Prince George – Kate and Prince William’s oldest – describing the young royal as a “cute boy” who had “good” technique. Federer spoke about the lesson during a press conference on 4 July.
Federer is believed to be the young royal’s favourite player and is a long-term friend of the Middletons – attending Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews in 2017 with wife Mirka.
He said the lesson took place at Kate’s parents’ house in Bucklebury.
“At that stage, it’s all about just touching the ball…same with my boys,” he said.
