Beyonce, Jay Z and Maisie Williams Lead Stars at Wimbledon Women’s Final

Beyonce, Jay Z and Maisie Williams Lead Stars at Wimbledon Women’s Final

The Wimbledon women’s final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber today attracted a whole host of big celebrities, including Beyonce, Jay Z and Maisie Williams.

It’s the start of finals weekend at SW19 and the battle for the women’s trophy kicked off on Centre Court just after 2pm.

As you’d expect, the stands were packed for this one, with Williams vying for the win which would see her equal Steffi Graf’s open era record of 22 Grand Slam titles.

There’s also intrigue to Kerber, as she’s already an Australian Open win to her name this year, beating Serena in the final back in January.

Star celebrities aren’t uncommon at Wimbledon, but they don’t come much bigger than Beyonce and her husband Jay Z – with both sitting in Williams’ box for the match.

British actress Maisie Williams – who is best known for playing Arya Stark in Game of Thrones – was also in attendance, while comedian Peter Kay and US TV personality Ellen DeGeneres were also spotted:

Hollywood actress Natalie Portman is also in attendance – seen picture on the right here:

If the women’s final is busy with stars then tomorrow’s men’s final between Andy Murray and Milos Raonic should too.

Canada’s Raonic should ensure more interest from North America, while the whole of Britain will be backing Murray to win his second Wimbledon trophy and the third Grand Slam of his career.
