THE Duchess of Sussex now has a jam-packed schedule filled with balls and launches.
In July 2018, she was in Wimbledon for the Ladies’ Singles final, where her friend Serena Williams was competing. Here’s the lowdown.
When did Meghan Markle attend Wimbledon 2018?
Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan would attend Wimbledon’s Ladies’ Singles Finals on Saturday, July 14 with Kate Middleton.
The 36-year-old had attended the tennis championship before.
She was snapped courtside back in 2016, when she and Prince Harry first began dating.
In her signature fedora, Meghan cut a low-key figure as she cheered on the competitors.
What was Meghan wearing?
Meghan and Kate Middleton arrived at Wimbledon at around 12pm.
The sisters-in-law waved and smiled at fans as they made their way towards Centre Court and the Royal Box.
It really was Meghan’s lucky day. As well as seeing her friend Serena compete she also got to see the conclusion of Rafa Nadal vs Novak Djokovic after their match ran too late to be completed the night before.
Both the Duchesses exuded Wimbledon chic, with Meghan teaming a loose-fitted blue and white-striped shirt with high-waisted white trousers.
Glamorous Kate sported a white frock with black circular striped spheres and gorgeous drop earrings.
Was she sitting in the Royal Box?
This time, Meghan had the best seats in the house.
A fully-fledged member of The Firm, she was allowed to sit in the Royal Box.
Reserved for royalty or distinguished guests, Meghan never has to queue for a ticket again.
And with pal Serena Williams on court, she had all the more reason to go along.
The tennis ace had previously dropped hints her friend could come to watch her play, depending on if she was still in the competition.
When asked if Meghan would come, Serena replied: “I don’t know. We’ll see. If I keep winning.”
How did Meghan become friends with Serena Williams?
The two women are firm friends with Serena bagging an invite to Meghan’s wedding, alongside her husband Alexis Ohanian.
They met in 2010 at the Super Bowl, and were pictured there together at the same event in 2014.
In her former blog The Tig, Meghan wrote about Serena: “We hit it off immediately.
“Taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff.”

Meghan was there when Serena launched her clothing line during New York Fashion Week in 2016.
Although she was unable to make her wedding to Reddit founder Alexis due to filming commitments for Suits, the four all had a double date.
Serena, Alexis and Meghan attended the Audi Polo Challenge to watch Harry play.
After Serena’s outburst at the US Open in September 2018, the tennis player told Australian news program The Sunday Project: “We have known each other for a long time, but we really kind of are relying on each other right a lot recently.”
Of the Royal Wedding, she added: “The whole service was really wonderful, and most of all I just wanted to see my friend be happy. And I think that’s what happened.”
