Kate Middleton and Prince William's eldest child Prince George attended Wimbledon for the first time on Sunday, and it was special for more than one reason as the eight-year-old met the winner of the match, Novak Djokovic.

While the Cambridges spoke to and shook hands with the seven-time champion, the young royal appeared to be standing confidently beside them.

However, footage captured by the BBC seemingly shows Prince George feeling overwhelmed by the exchange.

He could later be seen running off and sitting on a sofa before using his hands to cover his face, as if he was starstruck.

Though it was Prince George's first time at the tournament, he's known for playing tennis with his siblings, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, and he previously played with Roger Federer.

He was lucky to be able to sit in the royal box for the event, which saw Djokovic win victory over Australian contender Nick Kyrgios, as few children have had the same opportunity.

It's usually occupied by people in the Tennis community, which only members of the royal family can join.

Middleton, who was recently dubbed a 'down-to-earth mum', is known for wanting her kids to have a normal life that includes enjoying the outdoors.

The duchess, who stresses the positive impact that the outdoors and the environment can have on children's development, has been spotted playing tennis with her children too.

Prince George isn't the only sports fan, as Prince William revealed last month that Prince Charlotte is a 'budding' football player.

During a visit to England Women's team at St George's Park, he said: 'Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is really good at goal.

She said "Please tell them that." She's a budding star for the future.'
