Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle will not be able to attend the event they have made a tradition of this year. The two have attended the Wimbledon tennis tournament together for the past couple of years, and the Duchesses could have been planning to repeat the tradition this summer.
Unfortunately the tennis tournament has been called off due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Kate, who has attended the event for the past eight years, will probably be very disappointed by the news.
Wimbledon was due to take place between June 29 to July 12.
However, the London-based event will not go ahead at all this year, and have been postponed to 2021.
The couple looked delighted to be in each other’s company as they chatted together.
That’s perhaps why they decided to repeat the success and attended Wimbledon together again last year, with the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton.
In 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex watched as Meghan’s close friend Serena Williams took on Romanian tennis player Simona Halep for the women’s title.
Meghan and Kate enjoyed the match and were pictured laughing and cheering on the players.
Meghan and her husband Prince Harry stepped down as senior royals on March 31, after announced their intention to do so in January.
The couple undertook their final official royal engagements in March.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have moved to North America with their son Archie Harrison.
They were first living on Vancouver Island in Canada, but has since moved to Los Angeles, USA, to be closer to Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
