Kate Middleton perfected her royal wave long ago — but this is a completely different kind!

The tennis-loving mom (Kate and Prince William, both 39, have a court at their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk) returned to Wimbledon for the tournament's final day on Sunday. She even brought along a special guest: her dad, Michael Middleton!

While the father-daughter duo watched Britain's Gordon Reid play against Belgium's Joachim Gerard in the final of the Gentlemen's Wheelchair Singles, a crowd favorite at sporting events broke out. Kate and her father participated in 'The Wave' with smiles when it was their section's turn to throw their arms in the air.

Kate, a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club which hosts Wimbledon, later made her way to the Royal Box at Centre Court, where she watched as Serbia's Novak Djokovic won his sixth Wimbledon title and 20th Grand Slam with victory over Italy's Matteo Berrettini.

It was a very sporty weekend for the Duchess of Cambridge. She also attended the famed tennis tournament on Saturday with Prince William to watch the women's final, where Ashleigh Barty defeated Karolína Plíšková to win the title.
