Friends are forever, and that’s certainly how it seems for close pals Meghan Markle and Serena Williams. Though Meghan’s life has seen some major changes since becoming the Duchess of Sussex, one thing is certain: Their friendship is stronger than ever. At a press conference on Monday (July 2), the tennis champ opened up about her recent afternoon with the royal, giving fans a hint at whether or not her 36-year-old friend will be spotted in the Wimbledon stands this summer.
When asked if Meghan plans to attend, the 36-year-old tennis star laughed and stated simply, “I don’t know, we’ll see. If I keep winning!” And if her past seven Wimbledon Grand Slam Singles titles – on top of six Grand Slam Doubles titles – are any indication, it’s likely fans will be seeing Serena rallying to the end of this year’s nail-biting tournament.
Being an athlete herself, Serena also took a moment to commend the princes for their athleticism in playing polo, saying it’s a very “intense” sport. The mother of one and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, paired up with the Suits alum to watch Prince Harry and Prince William ride at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England on Saturday (June 30). The brothers were playing for charity, and the trio cheered them on from the sidelines.
The famous couple also attended Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding on May 19. Though their adorable baby girl, Alexis Olympia, wasn’t in the pews, she made a few appearances on her mom’s Instagram while the family was in England for the big day. Serena dazzled in a beautiful pink Versace dress and matching fascinator for the ceremony, slipping into something a little more floral – a long Valentino gown, similar to what Amber Heard wore in Cannes earlier this year – for the exclusive evening reception.
