Meghan Markle Makes Surprise Appearance At Wimbledon To Support Serena Williams

Meghan Markle stunned audiences at Wimbledon when she appeared to support her friend Serena Williams. The Duchess of Sussex was spotted in the stands alongside pals Lindsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis to watch the tennis star play.

The former American actress previously attended the tournament in 2016, which was around the same time she was set up on a blind date with her future husband, Britain’s Prince Harry. Last year, she joined sister-in-law, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, for the tournament, marking their first joint event together.

Markle first met Williams, 37, at the 2010 Super Bowl in Miami where they quickly became friends. Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian would go on to attend the royal wedding in 2018 and then joined Markle to watch Harry, 34, compete in a polo match in Ascot, England. Williams also helped throw a star-studded baby shower for Markle in New York City earlier this year.

The two stars also have motherhood in common and the appearance has sparked rumours that the 37-year-old, who was with two of her oldest and closest friends, has chosen the women to be godparents for son Archie’s christening on Saturday.

Though Meghan’s appearance at Wimbledon was unannounced, this was her second appearance since she put to bed. Back in June, Markle attended Trooping of Colour to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday parade.

The new mum looked characteristically stylish in a black cami, blue jeans and a white pinstripe blazer, paired with black court shoes and sunglasses.
