The Wimbledon finale happened yesterday, and it seems Nick Kyrgios’ colorful language during his match has offended the royals…
As we know, Kate Middleton and Prince William attended the event with eight-year-old Prince George, and many believe Kyrgios’ behavior wasn’t suitable.

Now, the royal family has made headlines a lot over the last few years.
In recent years, people have been, understandably, more concerned for the Queen. Losing a partner of more than seventy years must be horrific. And right after that, she was struck with another painful blow just a few months later.
At the time, according to friends, the Queen was using her dogs to help cope with the grief of losing Philip…
The Queen is known for being a true animal lover, with one animal, in particular, that’s always been associated with HRH.
The Queen was given her first corgi, Susan, on her eighteenth birthday in 1944.
It has been estimated that the Queen has owned more than thirty dogs during her reign, all of which were from the same family.
Her most famous dog is Monty, who appeared with her in a sketch for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics…
The queen had planned not to get any more dogs after Vulcan, her dorgi – a dachshund-corgi cross – passed away last year. She was left with just 1 corgi called Candy.
She acquired 2 new four-legged friends when Philip was hospitalized…
And their names had truly special meanings…
Fergus was named after her uncle Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who was killed in action during the First World War.
The second dog, Muick, pronounced Mick, is a pure-bred corgi and named after Loch Muick, a favorite spot for the Royals during their summer holiday.
When the news of the new dogs came out, Royal biographer Penny Junor said: “Her corgis are hugely important to her.”
“They have over the years been closer to her than any human being. The corgis are intensely loyal and loving and they have never let her down.”
But sadly, just a month after Philip died…
Her 5-month-old puppy Fergus passed away.
Fergus had been purchased by Prince Andrew to help his mother cope with the grieving process.
But sources confirmed Fergus passed away in May, just a month after she lost her husband.
A source told The Sun: “The Queen is absolutely devastated.
“The puppies were brought in to cheer her up during a very difficult period.”
“Everyone concerned is upset as this comes so soon after she lost her husband.”
It seems that as she tries to handle all her grief, Queen Elizabeth appears to be struggling physically as well as emotionally…
She was snapped at Westminster Abbey with her daughter for the Thanksgiving service…
To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the British Royal Legion.
But as soon as she stepped out of her car, people noticed something concerning…
She was using a walking stick to support herself, something she hasn’t been seen with for seventeen years.
The only other time the Queen has been pictured with a stick was after her knee operation back in 2003…
But she quickly recovered and stopped using it the following year, in 2004.
The pictures have clearly left a lot of people worried about her physical health…
However, although it might be a little alarming, the Queen still looks to be her usual upbeat self.
But royal doctors are reported to have given her a stern health warning.
And people were left worried all over again…
Queen Elizabeth has reportedly been told to stop drinking by royal doctors.
As per Vanity Fair, 2 sources claim that doctors have advised the queen to cut out alcohol except for special occasions.
“The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” the source said.
“It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”
Doctors are said to have given her the warning about alcohol to ensure she is as healthy as possible for her full schedule.
It also comes ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
However, things went from bad to worse as the queen suffered a sprained back, resulting in her absence from the Remembrance service in London.
The service would have been her first appearance since being admitted to hospital, after which she was advised by her doctors to rest for 2 weeks and only undertake “desk-based duties,” as per Buckingham Palace.
The palace released a statement ahead of the Remembrance event…
“The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.”
“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service,” it continued.
“As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by the Prince of Wales.
“His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned.”
The Queen has only ever missed 6 cenotaph ceremonies in her sixty-nine-year reign…
But that’s not the only commitment that’s had to be canceled as the Queen’s in-person appearance at the General Synod was also canceled with the Earl of Wessex attending instead.
While attending the Synod, the Earl read a speech to bishops and clergy at the Westminster headquarters of the Church of England on behalf of the queen, The Sun reported.
But what the Queen had to say in her speech has broken hearts…
In her speech, the queen praised the Church of England for offering “hope” during the pandemic.
A period of time that she described as full “of anxiety, grief & weariness.”
“It is hard to believe that it is over fifty years since Prince Philip and I attended the very first meeting of the General Synod,” the Earl also read on her behalf.
“None of us can slow the passage of time; and while we often focus on all that has changed in the intervening years, much remains unchanged, including the Gospel of Christ and his teachings.”
She’s shown her nation just how motivated she is to carry on with her duties.
As she returned back to work after telling Armed Force Chiefs that she couldn’t move.
The Queen was back to work, smiling, and performing duties for her nation.
And she did so via a Zoom conference call.
The Queen virtually welcomed ambassadors, and definitely displayed her ability to power through.
Attending the virtual call was Ambassador of Finland Jukka Siukosaari, with Mariella Siukosaari, and the Ambassador of Jordan Manar Dabbas, with Muna Abuhassan.
And she even managed to crack an adorable smile for her audience.
Despite feeling tense after yesterday.
And it’s safe to say, that the Queen has had a lot to feel tense about lately.
Especially after Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus.
And after the news that Prince Andrew made a settlement of £12 million amid Virginia Giuffre claimed she was s*xually abused by him.
Which, according to the Telegraph, he will pay using money from Queen Elizabeth II, who also recently stripped him of all of his military titles.
However, that doesn’t stop the Queen from ensuring her job continues on.
Including her partaking in her Platinum Jubilee celebration over the weekend…
The celebration, which marked a whopping 70 years of the Queen’s reign, was well attended.
The vast majority of the royals were there for the many different ceremonies and events over the four days.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were there with their children.
Alongside Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla.
And as ever, all eyes were fixed on the family in the hopes of seeing some drama.
Particularly between Kate Middleton and her son, Prince Louis.
Because it seemed as though little Louis really wasn’t enjoying the celebrations…
As he was spotted pulling a series of amusing facial expressions that got the whole internet talking!
“Oh my Gosh!!!! I can’t!! Cuteness overload!! Prince Louis is so freaking adorable!” one fan wrote.
Another agreed, adding, “Prince Louis is stealing the show once again.”
However, others think Kate was ‘furious’ at the little one’s behavior…
“He’s going to be trouble! Kate looks furious!” one person wrote.
While some are questioning whether Kate is truly angry with her child, it seems others are just happy to see the Prince acting like a normal kid.
“So lovely to see him acting like any other child! They seem to be lovely parents who are doing a brilliant job raising their family!” one person wrote.
“They might be royal, they are still human!” another said.
We have to say, we’re loving this cheeky behavior!
He’s certainly one of a kind.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge later poked fun at their son’s behavior.
So, we guess it squashed the assumption that his mom was furious at him.
Taking to Twitter, the couple shared in a thread just how much they enjoyed their weekend spent celebrating the Jubilee.
In their first tweet, they shared how “fantastic” the weekend was for them, saying: “What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special.”
The pictures presented showed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in conversation during a street party, as well as displaying a picture of Kate with her children, and a picture of the crowds of people who showed up to celebrate the occasion.
The thread continued…
“Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember,” they wrote.
The second thread of pictures contained a picture of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince George, the outside of Buckingham Palace, and a snapshot of Kate smiling as she indulged in conversation.
Arguably the most memorable moment of them all, the final tweet poked fun at Prince Louis’ behavior as they celebrated the Queen’s seventy years on the throne.
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…” they finished their thread with a picture of the young Prince standing next to his dad.
But now his older brother, George, has been thrust into the limelight…
And it’s not for his behavior, like his little brother Louis.
It was because he was wearing a full suit in London’s scorching temperatures…
And, let’s just say some Twitter users weren’t too impressed…
“I know there is a strict dress code in the Royal Box at @wimbledon and his mum and dad are very respectful of such things, but did Prince George really have to wear a suit and tie in that heat?” wrote one user.
While another wrote: “Poor Prince George in a suit and tie at Wimbledon.”
But it didn’t just stop there, as there were a lot of agreements to say the outfit was not weather appropriate — and fans even gave their suggestions on what he should’ve worn…
“Shocked at seeing little Prince George sitting in a suit and tie in the sun at Wimbledon in that heat yesterday! What are they thinking?” one person expressed.
“Poor Prince George. Trussed up in a suit and tie on the hottest day at Wimbledon. I know he’s third in line but he’s a little boy, for crying out loud. A nice, collared cotton tee and a pair of slacks would be much more comfortable, poor kid,” said another.
And of course, some weren’t too fazed by the outfit and said it’s “up to them how they chose to dress George.
“Nothing to be judgy about. Loads of obvious reasons to be dressed this way, of course. I’m sure had they dressed him a different way, there would also be loads of judgy comments.”
But that’s not all people are talking about…
Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has been fined for swearing repeatedly in front of the young royal.
Kyrgios was competing against Novak Djokovic in the men’s singles finals when he let his outrage show.
Kyrgios could be seen shouting obscenities, blaming a spectator for disrupting him, after which he asked for another first serve due to a double fault, yelling: “It’s a f*****g joke.”
For this outburst, Kyrgios was fined $4,000 due to him swearing in front of royalty.
People have since taken to social media to share their thoughts on the incident…
One amused fan wrote: “Prince George asking his Mother Catherine about the meaning of those 20 different swear words Nick Kyrgios using while playing against Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon finals!”
Another commented: “Prince George getting a whole new vocabulary list today! If only Prince Louis were there he’d cover George’s ears up! That or he’d just shout right back at @NickKyrgios.”
A third person said: “Nick Kyrgios has probably taught Prince George a few new words today.”
