Dan, that is not quite right. Prince Philipp showed up at the Hoad-Cooper final 1957 and attended the victory ceremony. I have seen pictures of this. The Queen never has been especially Wimbledon friendly. She gave Laver the trophy in 1962 and Virginiai Wade in 1977. It could be that she was present as a young girl togther with her King Father, when Kramer won in 1947. Or was it Princess Margaret, maybe both young girls.
