Duchess Catherine has been credited with giving the monarchy a truly modern update but her latest move is definitely a first.

The tech-savvy Duchess of Cambridge just made her very first appearance on Snapchat at Wimbledon.

Tennis star Serena Williams couldn’t believe her luck at meeting the mother of one and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, at the grand slam tournament so she decided to capture it on film.

And what better way to get the message out to millions of people, than to post it on Snapchat!

And instead of saying cheese, Serena chose something much more regal: “I’m with Royalty!” she said, beaming.

Duchess Catherine looked incredibly amused by the encounter, roping Sophie, Countess of Wessex in for the photo at the last minute.

The Duchess took time out to meet with many people on her day out at the tennis.

And the military personnel looked almost as thrilled as Serena!

Serena gushed about the meeting later.

“It was really nice to meet with them,” she confessed. “I actually didn’t know they were both here.

“It was really cool, we just had a chat about the matches.

“I was surprised – it was a good thing that I did not see that they were there, maybe I would have gotten a little nervous. But yeah, it was really cool.”

The Duchess and the Countess had a marvellous day out together.

Before the meeting, Kate had been in the royal box to watch Serena play, where she was surrounded by other celebrities keen to watch the match.

Right behind the young royal, was Barry Gibb of Bee Gees fame. Also in attendance were Downton Abbey’s Dame Maggie Smith and Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner aka Sansa Stark.

Dame Maggie caught the action at Wimbledon.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner was also courtside for the big event.
