Meghan Markle, 37, and Kate Middleton, 37, spent Saturday afternoon watching Serena Williams contend for what could be her 24th Grand Slam at Saturday’s Wimbledon final. The royal sister-in-law’s were dressed to impress in feminine looks. Meghan looked stunning a white button down shirt tucked into a blue, black and white maxi skirt, while Kate looked equally as beautiful in a green Dolce & Gabbana dress. Meghan sat next to Kate in the Royal Box, with Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, seated on Meghan’s other side. The women appeared in good spirits, smiling and laughing together while cheering on Serena. Former tennis champ Martina Navratilova sat behind them.
Ahead of the match, Kensington Palace announced on Twitter that the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex would be in attendance. This year’s match marks their second joint Wimbledon visit, after they sat front row in the royal box last summer for the finals of the tennis tournament. Kate and Meghan were recently spotted at separate matches during this year’s tournament just days before they attended the Final together. Meghan watched Serena play against Croatian pro Kaja Juvan on July 4 with friends Genevieve Hillis and Lindsay Roth. Just days earlier, Kate attended with British tennis players Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong, where they supported Brit Harriet Dart, who played against the U.S.’s Christina McHale.
The royals are present to support Meghan’s good friend as she takes on Romania’s former world No.1, Simon Halep. Serena is eyeing to avenge last year’s final defeat by Angelique Kerber, where Kate and Meghan were both in attendance. If Serena takes the trophy, she will tie Margaret Court for the all-time record, meanwhile, Simon is aiming for her second major.
Both Kate and Meghan are regulars at the tournament. This year’s appearance comes just one year after their first one-on-one outing at the tennis tournament, when they watched Germany’s Angelique Kerber beat Serena. The tournament also comes after Meghan and Prince Harry welcomed their first child together, a son named Archie in May.
