Serena Williams Praises Meghan Markle After Wimbledon Visit

Serena Williams Praises Meghan Markle After Wimbledon Visit

The BFFs have known one another since 2014 and they are so close that Serena and her husband Alexis Ohanian were on the guest list for the Royal wedding in May of a year ago.

Kate, wearing a bespoke green D&G midi dress, and Meghan - in a white pleated skirt and blouse - arrived to the venue in south-west London earlier today separately, with Kate thought to have lunched with former champions beforehand.

The palace also announced the Duchess of Cambridge will be joined by her husband Prince William at the Wimbledon men's singles final on Sunday afternoon. Meghan dressed for the occasion in a Ralph Lauren collection shirt and high-waisted cream pants, while accessorising the look with an Altuzarra bag, while Kate wore a classic white dress by Jenny Peckham and carried a small Dolce and Gabbana handbag.

Tennis fan Hasan Hasanov was photographed being told off by the Duchess of Sussex's security team for snapping a selfie of himself with the players in the background.

Serena Williams is hoping to equal the world record of 24 grand slam titles won by a female player, which was set by Australian Margaret Court and has stood since the 1970s.

Kate waved to a cheering crowd calling out her name as she entered the Centre Court building. Social media users have described the pattern as a "surprise delight" on Twitter.

This is the second time the sister-in-laws have watched the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final together.

The appearance at the tennis tournament marks the second visit for both Duchesses, who have been spotted at separate matches during the 2019 Championships. Last week, Meghan Markle had made a surprise trip to the courts, where 23-time grand slam victor Serena was playing against Kaja Juvan.

Sweeping her dark hair back into a sleek low ponytail, Meghan elevated her look with pretty studs and a cream bag complete with gold chain.

The seven-time Wimbledon victor has already won 23 grand slam titles.
