Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, is patron of Wimbledon’s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) and has both days of the tournament’s final weekend. On Saturday she watched the women’s finals with her husband Prince William, 39, at her side while on Sunday she enjoyed a day out with her father Michael Middleton.

Photos of Kate and Michael at Wimbledon show them smiling and laughing together in the stands and even taking part in a Mexican wave.

A body language expert has analysed pictures of Kate at the tournament with her father and share her insights.

Body language analyst and author Judi James told Express.co.uk: “With William presumably on his way to Wembley with his fingers still crossed for tonight’s match, it was Kate’s father on stand-in duty, and the change in roles between royal wife and daughter are visible in Kate’s shift in body language signals.”

The Duchess’s status signals shift in the presence of her father, Judi claimed.

She added: “Arriving looking every inch an elegant and confident future Queen, Kate seems to have settled into a look that is much less about status and more about dad-and-daughter fun once they got into their seats.”

Kate is able to relax and have fun with her father and is “less upright” than she sometimes is with her husband William, the expert claimed.

Judi added: “She settles back here, instead of sitting upright as usual, and we can see her throwing herself into the Mexican wave with a huge grin of delight, cheering as she does so.”

Kate’s joy during the day out is clear in the way she laughs “uninhibited”, Judi explained.

The expert added: “When she laughs her nose wrinkles in a gesture of uninhibited fun and happiness that she has probably retained since childhood and when she and her father sit with their heads together chatting, the mirrored smiles and head angles show the strong bonds of affection that exist between them.”

The Duchess looked striking in a baby pink belted dress, cream heels and a colourful face mask for the final day of the two-week tournament.

It is a big weekend of sport for the Cambridges and Kate, William and their son Prince George, seven, are all expected at Wembley to watch England take on Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday evening.

Royal fans were delighted to see George at the England vs Germany game earlier in the tournament with some dubbing the prince England’s lucky charm.

Both William and the Queen have issued messages of encouragement to the Three Lions ahead of this evening’s match.

Speaking in a special video message on Sunday morning, the Duke, who is head of the FA said: “Gareth (Southgate), Harry (Kane), and to every member of the England team on and off the pitch, I just want to wish you the very best of luck for tonight.

“What a team performance it’s been.

“Every member of the squad has played their part, and all the back room team as well have been truly essential.”

William added: “I can’t really believe this is happening.

“So exciting and I just wish you the very best of luck.

“You bring out the very best of England and we are all behind you.

“The whole country is behind you. So, bring it home.”
