'Won't get three kisses' Kate braced for very embarrassing and 'awkward' Wimbledon moment

The Duchess of Cambridge, patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club,

could be forced to congratulate Nick Kyrgios, who faces a charge of assaulting his ex-

girlfriend, if he is triumphant after Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from Wimbledon ahead of their semi-final clash.

The Australian has been handed a walkover into Sunday's final,

where he will face either Novak Djokovic or Cameron Norrie.

But Ephraim Hardcastle, writing for the Daily Mail, predicted

he wouldn’t "get three kisses from the duchess” if triumphant.

It comes after Wimbledon banned players from Russia

and Belarus to “spare the blushes” of Kate.
