Tennis winner Emma Raducanu has received congratulations from members of the royal family, including the Queen and Kate Middleton, following her straight-sets win at the US Open this weekend.

Speaking to the BBC about how much the Queen's message meant, Emma shared she intends to frame the special letter.

The 18-year-old said, "It meant everything to get a written message from Her Majesty. I mean, she's such a great inspiration and role model for the whole country so to have a note from her, I was extremely honoured and very, very grateful for that… I can't believe it, I'm maybe going to frame that letter or something."

The Queen's letter read, "I send my congratulations to you on your success in winning the United States Open Tennis Championships. It is a remarkable achievement at such a young age and is testament to your hard work and dedication. I have no doubt your outstanding performance, and that of your opponent Leylah Fernandez, will inspire the next generation of tennis players."

The new British number one was lucky enough to receive congratulations via Twitter from the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Beatrice.

Kate wrote: "Huge congratulations @EmmaRaducanu on your stunning performances and historic Grand Slam victory! Incredible –we are all so proud of you. @LeylahFernandez well done on your amazing achievements at this year’s #USOpen, it’s been a pleasure to watch. C".

Beatrice echoed the sentiments, tweeting, "Congratulations to @EmmaRaducanu that was a remarkable game of tennis and what a journey over these last three weeks. Thank you for inspiring us with your smiles and joy on the court."
