Queen Elizabeth Invited Rafael Nadal but He refused
Queen Elizabeth was a big fan of tennis and a few years ago she was the champion of some award ceremonies at Wimbledon. Elizabeth has made some appearances and also has a special history with Rafael Nadal.
The Spaniard Rafael Nadal received an official invitation from Queen Elizabeth II during the 2010 Wimbledon Championships. And for the record, very few tennis players get this kind of pride, because this invitation does not pass by more than one award (as in the case of Andy Murray, when he was knighted). However, the Queen wanted the Spaniard to be at Buckingham Palace and to have lunch with him to exchange some words.
