Lewis Capaldi and Emma Watson were among the famous faces watching the ladies singles final between Ons Jabeur and Marketa Vondrousova at Wimbledon.
It was one of the first public appearances for Scottish singer Lewis after he struggled through his Pyramid stage performance at Glastonbury last month. Following the appearance, which saw the crowd help him finish his set as he fought to control his Tourette’s symptoms, he announced he is taking a break from touring “for the foreseeable future” as he learns to adjust to the impact of his diagnosis.
The 26-year-old, wearing a light blue jacket over a white T-shirt, watched the final with Harry Potter star Watson, 33, in the stands at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

US singer Nick Jonas and his actress wife Priyanka Chopra were also among the stars on Centre Court to watch Vondrousova become the first unseeded player to win the Wimbledon women’s singles title after beating sixth seed Jabeur 6-4 6-4.
The pair sat in the Royal Box, with Jonas in a tweed suit and Chopra sporting rectangular green-tinted sunglasses.
The 13th day of the championship also saw Lin-Manuel Miranda and Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield reunite in the Royal Box after Hamilton creator Miranda’s directorial debut Tick, Tick… Boom! starred Garfield as Rent lyricist and composer Jonathan Larson, and won him a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination.
Former Wimbledon presenter Sue Barker was also spotted watching the match from the Royal Box alongside former model Julia Lemigova and ex- tennis champion Martina Navratilova.
Barker left her role as lead anchor of the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage last summer after 30 years of presenting the tennis event.
Meanwhile the Princess of Wales consoled runner-up Ons after she was defeated.
As a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Kate presented Ons and unseeded Czech player Marketa with their trophies.
The princess rubbed Jabeur’s arm before the Tunisian player broke down in tears in front of a supportive crowd.
The runner-up joked in her on-court interview that she was “going to look ugly in the photos” before sobering up and adding: “I think this is the most painful loss of my career.”
Kate joined in with the applause after Jabeur continued: “I’m not going to give up and I’m going to come back stronger.”
She hugged and spoke with Jabeur after the presentation was finished.
