Kate Middleton was once forced to make a shock exit from the royal box at Wimbledon after receiving an unexpected medical alert.
The Princess of Wales, 41, is a regular attendee at the world-famous tennis competition, with many members of the Firm frequenting the tournament.
However, back in 2021 when she was about to watch British star Dan Evans take to the court, Kate discovered she had been in contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid-19.

Strict isolation rules at the time meant anyone who had been in close contact with a confirmed case had to remain at home in a bid to quash the spread of the virus.
This meant Kate was forced to rush home to Kensington Palace to carry out her quarantine period.
At this point, the then-Duchess of Cambridge had received her vaccine and it is believed she tested negative for the virus, reports the Mirror.
However, it did mean she had to miss some engagements that week.
But she was out of isolation to return to Wimbledon for the ladies' final, which saw now-retired former number one Ashleigh Barty take the title.

She was also back at the club a day later for the men's final, won by Novak Djokovic for the third year in a row, before she paid a trip to Wembley for England's Euro 2020 final against Italy.
Top tennis players from around the world have descended upon southwest London once again this summer in a bid to win the Championships.
And even Kate recently tried her hand at the sport, going head-to-head against the legendary Roger Federer – and beating him.
The princess beat the eight-times champion when they had a quick head-to-head during a royal visit to the iconic court, where she shone a spotlight on the important work of ball boys and girls.
Swiss ace Federer couldn't contain his awe and gasped "Amazing!" as the royal served up her winning shot.
