Princess Kate question slapped down by Wimbledon star

During her press conference after losing in the semi-finals of the famous championship, Wimbledon standout Elina Svitolina brushed off a question regarding Princess Kate.

Marketa Vondrouová defeated Svitolina 6-3 6-3 to finish her incredible run in the competition.

In past competitions, as well as this year's Wimbledon, the Ukrainian athlete declined to shake hands with Russian and Belarussian players.

The Princess of Wales has been patron of the All England Club since 2016, and as part of her position, she gives trophies to each of the tournament winners.

On Thursday, Belarusian sensation Aryna Sabalenka competed in the other semi-final.

In the final, Elena Rybakina defeated Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, and Kate delivered the Wimbledon trophy to the tennis star.

Wimbledon's decision to prohibit Russian competitors resulted in the tournament losing its authority to award ranking points to participants.

Rybakina won Kazakhstan's first major singles champion.
