Wimbledon use secret 'code word' for David Beckham and other celebs at the tournament

Wimbledon use secret 'code word' for David Beckham and other celebs at the tournament

Security staff use a special code to help keep VIPs and celebs safe.

So many high-profile celebrities attend Wimbledon that security staff use a secret code word to help keep them safe.

Every year Wimbledon is one of the highlights of the British sporting calendar, with the top tennis players from across the world competing at the All England Club.

Unsurprisingly, thousands of tennis-lovers descended on SW19 watch their favourite players in action, including hundreds of celebrities.

A-list celebrities ranging from Royals to athletes, actors to musicians and even politicians are often found sitting in the Royal Box or in the posh seats.

The Prince and Princess of Wales are often present at Centre Court for the final matches of the tournament, and other celebrities like David Beckham attend every year without fail.

In 2023, William and Kate, Daniel Craig, Brad Pitt, members of the Lionesses and Beckham were all in attendance in the Royal Box.

Wimbledon security staff run a huge operation in order to keep the VIPs safe and to prevent them from getting bombarded with photo and autograph requests from fans.

According to The Sun, staff use a special code phrase to communicate when VIPs and big-time celebrities are present at the All England Club: "Full jug of Pimm's."

On Monday, Beckham was spotted sitting alongside broadcaster David Attenborough in the Royal Box during Carlos Alcaraz's first round match against Mark Lajal.

Alcaraz, the current men's world number three, is looking to defend the Wimbledon title he won in 2023.

The Spaniard came into the tournament off the back of a round-of-16 exit in the Queen's Club Championship last month, although 11 days before that he won the French Open by beating Alexander Zverev in Paris.
