She joined her older brother, Prince George, for the first time in the Royal Box to watch Carlos Alcaraz beat tennis legend Novak Djokovic in five sets to win his first Wimbledon title and deny his Serbian opponent a record eighth tournament win.
The Spaniard beat Djokovic in a thrilling final on Centre Court in SW19 to win his first Wimbledon title and second Grand Slam at the age of 20.
The eight-year-old greeted Wimbledon staff, police dog Stella and British wheelchair doubles' champion Gordon Reid.
Highlights from day 14 at Wimbledon
In the Player's Lawn, Kate told Ella Ottaway, who runs the All England Club's young people programme, that Prince Louis was "very upset" that he was not attending.
"It's Charlotte's first time, George came last year. They've been eagerly watching," she said.
"Charlotte you've been getting to grips with the scoring.
"Louis was very upset he wasn't coming today."
Kate also told 16-year-old ball boy Joel that Louis has been practising being a ball boy.
After their conversation, Joel said: "He (Louis) tries to practise the standing and staying serious like us.
"He tries to practise the stands and how we stand at the back of the court and next to the players."
Charlotte petted Stella the springer spaniel, who searched Centre Court on Sunday morning on her last day at Wimbledon before retiring.
The young princess was also introduced to eight-year-old Mu'awwiz Anwar who is representing the charity WaterAid and who performed the coin toss at the match.
Meanwhile, Sunday marks Kate's third visit to Wimbledon this year, this time wearing a green dress by Roland Mouret.
The princess attended on Saturday and consoled a tearful Ons Jabeur after the Tunisian lost the ladies' singles final against Czech player Marketa Vondrousova.
She also had a rain-hit visit on the tournament's second day when she took shelter under an umbrella on Court 18 while watching British number one Katie Boulter.
