Prince Charles sees Federer win at Wimbledon

The Prince of Wales returned to Wimbledon for the first time since 1970, and got to watch Roger Federer defeat Fabio Fognini from Centre Court's Royal Box. 
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, chatted with former British Nº1 Tim Henman and Andy Roddick before taking their seats in the Royal Box. Later, they met Roger Federer, who bowed to the Royals before and after the second round match. 
Earlier in the day, BBC asked Roger Federer what he thought when he heard the Royals would be at the match and the Swiss said: "Don't do anything stupid!". Fortunately, nothing stupid happened and Federer rolled to the third round. Here are some videos of the royal visit on Day 3 at Wimbledon (second video  shows meeting with Henman and Roddick).
