Britain's Duchess Catherine is reportedly being lined up for a major role in British tennis.
The duchess - who was among those in attendance for the recent Wimbledon final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer - is to be made a vice-patron of the historic All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in recognition of her passion for tennis.
A club insider told the Daily Express newspaper: "The duchess is a passionate supporter of tennis and it is felt she has a valuable role to play in the sport."
If Catherine, the wife of Prince William, takes on the role she will be given responsibilities such as sharing the presentation of trophies with the club's current president, the Duke of Kent.
The source added: "There is plenty of scope for the duchess to play a big role. The title of vice-patron has been mentioned and it's understood she is keen to be involved.
"To have the duchess there on finals day presenting the trophies would make an already special day in the sporting calendar extra-special."
However, a royal spokesperson insisted that there are currently "no plans" for Catherine to work with the organisation.
They said: "There are no plans at present for the Duchess of Cambridge to take up an official role at the All England Tennis Club."
Queen Elizabeth is currently patron of the club.
