The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have got a large and loyal social media fanbase, with 2.2m followers on Twitter and a huge 13m on Instagram.

While the majority of posts on their feeds are about their lives as senior royals (and parents to George, Charlotte and Louis), because Kate and Will are a busy pair, images and videos are often shared on their behalf.

But sometimes, the royal duo take their feeds into their own hands and craft personal posts, giving an insight into the causes and current affairs topics they're most passionate about.

As a lifelong football fan and President of the FA, Prince William can be seen posting about the sport every now and then, signing off personal musings with his initial "W".

And it's not just Will who's a big sport lover - in fact, Kate Middleton just posted a rare personal tweet of her own about an important sporting moment unfolding currently.

"What an incredible achievement at this year's #USOpen @EmmaRaducanu! We will all be rooting for you tomorrow," Kate tweeted, referencing the fact that London teenager, Emma, has made the final of the prestigious Grand Slam.

"Wishing you the best of luck!" Kate added, signing off her tweet with a simple "C".

In the early hours of this morning, Emma won her US Open semi-final in two sets to reach the hotly-anticipated final. Emma is the first British woman to earn a place a major singles final in 44 years.

The 18-year-old described her win as: “A surprise. A shock. Crazy. All of the above.”

She's spoken about the fact she booked her return flights to the UK for the end of the qualifying rounds, a few weeks ago, not expecting to reach this stage.

“Honestly, the time in New York has gone so fast,” she said. “I’ve just been taking care of each day and before you know it, three weeks later, I’m in the final. I can’t believe it."

As for the Duchess of Cambridge - she's a big tennis fan, regularly appearing in the royal box at Wimbledon to watch Men's and Ladies' matches, so we're sure she'll be cheering Emma on from afar.

The teenager will play in the US Open final tomorrow (11 September) at 9pm UK time.
