Being avid tennis fans, Princess Kate and Prince William will be making an appearance at the Wimbledon next week.  Kensington Palace confirmed the Wimbledon trip, reported by Hello magazine Thursday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be watching the quarter-final matches on the Centre Court on Wednesday, states Kensington Palace.  Last year, the royal couple also went to Wimbledon to watch Roger Federer take on Novak Djokovic in the men's singles final.   It was then that Princess Kate famously displayed an array of reactions, from cheering to clasping her hands in front of her face.

While the Duchess’ calendar is still light, Prince William’s appointment book is filled to the brim with royal engagements.  Starting July 13, the Duke of Cambridge will begin his full week of shifts as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.  But prior that, Prince William will be attending various functions to carry out his royal duties.

The day before attending Wimbledon, the young prince will be paying a moving tribute to the victims of the July 7, 2005 bombing which killed 52 people and left hundreds injured, reports UK’s the Standard.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack, and the royal will be joining the event to be held at the permanent memorial in Hyde Park.  This event was organised by the families of the victims to be themselves.

On Thursday, July 9, the Duke will visit the Imperial War Museum Duxford to accept a newly restored Supermarine Spitfire Mark I N3200 on behalf of the museum.  The following day, he will join the Queen and senior members of the family on the Buckingham Palace balcony to view a Royal Air Force (RAF) Flypast to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The announcement of the prince’s schedule comes weeks after William was accused of being "lazy," states Vanity Fair.  In April, it was revealed that the prince carried out an equivalent of 47 days on official duties since quitting the RAF.  It seems Prince William is determined to prove his critics wrong given the list of his royal engagements next week.

Meanwhile, the royal family is currently preparing for the upcoming christening of their daughter Princess Charlotte. Prince William and Princess Kate’s youngest will be baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, at St. Mary Magdalene Church on Sunday, July 5.
