However, a friend of hers and Prince William's told the outlet, “It's no secret that she would love to be there, but when you're having chemo, as she said herself, there are good days and bad days.”

Although there is hope, the friend said it all “depends on the length of treatment.” He added: “She's made it to Trooping the Colour so if she can make it to Wimbledon she will.”

The royal family has a long history with the world's oldest tennis tournament. It all started in 1907, when the then-Prince of Wales George V and his wife, Princess Mary (later Britain's king and queen), attended Wimbledon.

Since then, the royal family has continued the tradition, and in 2016 Queen Elizabeth handed the patronage over to Kate. The Princess of Wales is known for her enthusiasm for tennis, leaving royal fans wondering if she will attend this year. Despite there being no official confirmation of her coming, Wimbledon officials have expressed hope.

Tournament chairwoman Debbie Jevans told the Daily Telegraph: “We hope the Princess of Wales will be able to present the trophy as patron of the club but her health and recovery is the priority. We don't know what we don't know. All we have said is we will work with her and give her as much flexibility as possible.”
