Wimbledon, London:

Prince Charles visited Wimbledon on Wednesday for the first time in 42 years, meeting with some former players and watching Roger Federer's match from the Royal Box on Centre Court.

Charles chatted with former British No. 1 Tim Henman before taking his seat in the Royal Box alongside his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who also came to Wimbledon last year.

Queen Elizabeth II made a visit to the All England Club in 2010, but Charles had not attended the tournament since 1970.

Federer and his Italian opponent Fabio Fognini both bowed to the royals before the second-round match.

Camilla arrived to the club before her husband and also chatted with former runner-up Andy Roddick.
