Serena ready for royal date with Meghan Markle at Wimbledon
Serena Williams thinks of herself as Wimbledon royalty and the seven-time champion will be cheered on by her friend the Duchess of Sussex in Saturday’s final against Angelique Kerber. Just two months after attending her friend Meghan’s wedding to the Duke of Sussex in Windsor, Serena will perform in front of the new royal on Centre Court.
“There’s word on the street,” Williams said when asked if Meghan would attend the final. Told that Kensington Palace had announced the Duchess would be there, Serena smiled and said: “There you go. It came from the palace that she is coming on Saturday.” The US star is so close to Meghan that she postponed her preWimbledon media duties to go with her to watch her husband Prince Harry play polo in Ascot. Two weeks on from that outing, Williams has reached her first Grand Slam final since becoming a mother, only 10 months after giving her birth to daughter Olympia.
