Prince Louis has been gifted something very special from tennis legend Stan Smith.

While the prince is too young to sit in the box at Wimbledon, his mum Kate Middleton was there at the Men's Singles Grand Final.

As Kate and Prince William took their seats in the royal box, former tennis world champion Stan Smith was snapped handing the Duchess of Cambridge a pair of tiny white tennis shoes with "Prince Louis" emblazoned across them in gold that had also been signed by the tennis star himself.

It's been 47 years since the tennis champ won at Wimbledon and was later welcomed into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1987.

The Cambridges are well-known for their interest in tennis, with both Kate & Wills being big fans of playing and watching the sport.

Just last week it was reported that young Prince George was being coached by Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer.
