The Guardian report:
Men invited into the royal box are expected to wear a jacket, tie and shoes. In a second image posted on his Instagram account on Sunday, which he captioned “Wimbledon”, Hamilton was wearing neither a jacket, nor a a tie. A spokesman for Hamilton said: “Due to an unfortunate misunderstanding regarding dress code at Wimbledon, Lewis is very disappointed to have missed the men’s final.”
A Wimbledon spokesman confirmed that Hamilton had been due to attend the match, but would not comment on the reason he had not done so. The spokesman said: “If he was not adequately dressed, you could infer that he would not have been let in, but we do not comment on our guests. If he came without a jacket, tie or shoes, he would have had two choices – not staying, or going to get some extra stuff.”
