Sunday, 14 Jul, 2019

Duchesses Meghan and Catherine attended Wimbledon on Saturday to watch Serena Williams and Simona Halep compete in the women's singles final.

The royal pair attended the Ladies' Singles Final at Wimbledon; which was the first event they appeared at together sans husbands one year prior.

Rumours of tension between the Sussexes and Cambridges was fuelled when a royal author claimed the palace deliberately tried to "avoid diary clashes" between Harry, Meghan, William and Kate, to prevent "competition".

The granddad and keen tennis player was delighted when he discovered that he'd bagged himself the prime spot to watch eight-time Wimbledon champ Roger Federer.

And their presence hardly went unnoticed.

Wimbledon always brings out the stars, especially the royal family. "It was an honor to play in front of her".

This marked the time Meghan and Kate were photographed out together without husbands Prince Harry and Prince Williamsince feud rumors between the two couples sparked late a year ago. Meghan and Kate were all smiles as they sat together in the Royal Box on Centre Court.

Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have been longtime friends.

Following the game, Williams also praised her own biggest royal fan: pal Meghan.

"Just having her in general as a friend is great".

Meghan and Williams are close friends, with Williams attending her wedding to Harry last summer. "She, too, was happy for Simona".

Speaking on Sky News' The Pledge, Ms. Malone said: "Princess Privacy has been at it again, reportedly asking bodyguards to stop spectators at Wimbledon from taking photos of her.As she sat with 12,000 people watching a match broadcast to millions of people".

Claiming Diana's "last words to me that night still sound like the best advice any royal ear could be lucky enough to hear", the ex assistant revealed she had interpreted his advice as "keeping quiet and getting on with the job". And that was before she was told that as the new champion, she'd get to meet them after.
