THOUSANDS of people have queued up in the glorious sunshine for day two of Wimbledon.

It is one of the social scene highlights of the summer, and unlike most major sporting events it still sells tickets on the day.

So those willing to queue can join in the fun and glamour of the event and take part in some of the traditions that make it so quintessentially English. Glass of Pimms and a dish of strawberries and cream anyone?

It is also a favourite site for the paparazzi, with The Duchess of Cambridge being the star attraction this morning. Dressed all in white she took her place, not in the Royal Box, but in the stands of Court 14 to watch British player Harriet Dart take on Christina McHale from the US.

For those more interested in the tennis, amongst the star attractions today are eight-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer who is up against Lloyd Harrison centre court, with Rafael Nadal playing Yuichi Sugita on Court No1.

Serena Williams will start her quest for her eighth Wimbledon singles title against Giulia Gatto-Monticone from Italy this afternoon.
