Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle attends the 4th day of Wimbledon. The Duchess made a surprise visit to support her best friend Serena Williams.
Meghan Markle stepped out on Thursday to watch Serena’s Wimbledon match against Kaja Juvan. University friends Genevieve Hillis and Lindsay Roth accompanied the Duchess. Both the Duchess’s friends will be attending Archie Harrison’s christening on Saturday.
Meghan wore a black camisole, blue jeans, and a white pinstripe blazer, paired with black court shoes and sunglasses. She also wore a necklace with a tiny ‘A’ initial as a tribute to her son, Archie.
Serena Williams battles it out
Serena Williams battled it out against an 18-year-old Slovenian. After losing the first game, Williams pulled up her socks and took the match to 2-6 6-2 6-4.
Williams, 37, is playing to win the eighth Wimbledon title. In 2016, she took a break from the game to have a baby. The tennis player needs one more grand slam victory to equal Margaret Court’s unbreakable record of 24.
Today, Williams will play mixed doubles with two times Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. In 2017 Murray had hip surgery and is now looking forward to playing in the court.
