While it’s reported that sister-in-laws Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton aren’t BFFs, it looks like their bond is extending beyond their royal connection since spending time together at Wimbledon on Saturday.
Exactly two months after taking a front-row seat at Meghan’s wedding to the Duke of Sussex in Windsor, Williams took centre stage at Wimbledon.
The pair will watch Meghan’s close friend Serena Williams play in a 10th Wimbledon singles final on Saturday.
One report from In Touch claimed that both Markle and her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, are expecting at the same time, though the story has been shut down by Gossip Cop as being absolutely false.
Serena and Meghan have been friends for many years, and Meghan has been seen courtside supporting her in previous matches at the Grass Court Grand Slam.
It was the first public engagement for the women without their husbands, Prince Harry and Prince William.
The Duchess of Cambridge was also keen on showing the new royal the ropes while offering subtle cues of protocol that Meghan “face-watched”.
Meanwhile, Catherine opted for a classic polka dot summer dress.
Meghan went nautical for her appearance, pairing a blue-and-white striped shirt with a pair of wide-leg white pants, both by Ralph Lauren.
The duchess has cheered on players from the royal box most years since marrying Prince William.
He said he was contacted by Harry and Meghan following the paparazzi photo scandal, the couple assuring him he didn’t have anything to worry about and arrangements had been made to escort him to the airport for the wedding.
Meghan hit up Wimbledon alongside her sister-in-law Kate Middleton on Saturday, July 14 to support her pal Serena Williams, wearing a classic blue striped button-down shirt and crisp white wide-legged trousers from Ralph Lauren to the match.
But the American lost in straight sets, failing in her bid for an eighth ladies’ singles title. Last week, she beat Julia Görges 6-2, 6-4 in the Wimbledon semifinals and now stands at one win away from her eighth championship.
Kerber, on her part, had nothing but praises for the runner-up.
