The annual championships showdown at the All England Lawn Tennis Club is primarily tennis – along with plenty of glamorous spectators, excellent courtside fashion, plus Pimm’s, strawberries and cream. Royals come out in their summer finest, to present trophies and observe rallies from the Royal Box as aristocrats and A-listers descend in their droves. What other place attracts such an eclectic mix from public consciousness, from billionaire Jeff Bezos to supermodel Kendall Jenner, to the Beckhams and and Charlize Theron. Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler’s brilliant 2013 union is one that will go down in Wimbledon history, both for their matching suits and zealous courtside enthusiasm. Then, there’s Lily James, who turned up with Poldark’s Aidan Turner, and the year the Duchess of Sussex attended with the Middleton sisters. Here are some of the finest photographs taken at the fabled sporting event through the years.
