Kate Middleton wasn't actually playing tennis at the Wimbledon quarter-finals, but she was very into the game!

The duchess and hubby Prince William cheered on Andy Murray from the royal box at London's All England Club Wednesday, but royal support wasn't quite enough! The 2013 Wimbledon champ was knocked out of the championship following a shock 1-6, 6-7, 2-6 loss to Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov, and Kate and Wills felt his pain!

The disappointed prince placed his hands on his head, while his highly-animated wife's jaw dropped to the floor. (Although Kate was was upset, she still looked supercute in a white Zimmermann dress and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.)

Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark joined Prince George's parents in the royal box and were, understandably, also sad to see the former British champ lose to his opponent.

The Scottish athlete is well-regarded by the royal family and was actually inducted into the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Prince William this past October during the future king's first investiture.

Andy described the royal as "very nice" and "a normal person." He also revealed, per the Telegraph, that Kate had written to him for winning Wimbledon in 2013, noting, "She has unbelievable handwriting." (Of course she does.)

Perhaps this year, Kate will send a card letting Andy know he played a good game, and she's looking forward to seeing him win Wimbledon next year!
