The stars come out for Wimbledon: William and Kate, Drake and more

The historical Wimbledon grounds outside London have seen as many A-list celebrities in the stands as exciting tennis matches. This year, an impressive mix of royals, musicians and actors - among them the Duke of Cambridge and a freshly tressed Duchess (née Kate Middleton), Drake, Sienna Miller and new father Benedict Cumberbatch - have descend on the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to watch the world’s top players battle for glory.
