An array of stars and famous faces will litter the expensive seats for the Wimbledon tennis final later, to see Brit Andy Murray take on Roger Federer.

David and Victoria Beckham are expected at Centre Court this afternoon.

There was hope the Queen would attend, but longstanding private arrangements ruled that out, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

But the Duchess of Cambridge and Prime Minister David Cameron will be in the crowd - not a bad royal replacement!

Scot Murray has spoken of what impact a star-filled auditorium makes for him on the tennis court.

“I think it’s always going to make a difference when you have royalty in there,” said the 25-year-old.

“You know, it was an unbelievable privilege to play in front of those people.”

Murray also paid tribute to the support of his family, saying he hopes they can witness him “go one better” in today’s match.

But no matter who is watching, he is not too bothered about the stress they feel as they will him to victory.

“It’s a lot harder for me, that’s for sure.”

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond has also got his hands on a ticket for today’s final match.
