Prince William and Kate Middleton were among the attendees at this year's Wimbledon and it turns out the stress of the game was almost too much for the Duke of Cambridge. According to Hello, almost had a royal etiquette blunder while watching Cameron Nori take on Belgium's David Goffin. While cameras caught moments of the couple smiling and even one of Kate blowing kisses to her parents who were seated nearby, they also caught Prince William almost letting out the F-bomb.
As the match heated up, the camera panned over to Prince William who was seen mouthing the words, "Oh no, no, not...F" before the cameras panned away again. Some royal fans were convinced that the Duke was about to say the swear word while others thought he would never do such a thing. Fans took to social media to share their reactions with one fan saying, "He is saying no, no fudge... He would never use the f word." But others actually found the possible swearing endearing. "Can't be unseen! So glad he's human."
After the match, the couple took to their joint Instagram account to congratulate Nori. "What a day of tennis!" they wrote. Fantastic to be back @Wimbledon today and wonderful to see @norriee flying the flag in the singles! Just brilliant." The post featured shots of the tennis match as well as photos taken of the couple in their royal box at Centre Court.
