The two Duchesses will attend the tennis tournament to cheer on Meghan's close friend, Serena Williams.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex will attend Wimbledon this weekend to cheer on Meghan Markle's close friend Serena Williams in the women's singles final.

This will be Williams attempt at bagging a 24th grand slam title at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, England so she'll no doubt be thrilled to have her friend cheering Centre Court-side.

 

Can’t help but smile. See you Saturday, #Wimbledon! ☺️

Serena was one of the many high profile guests from the USA that attended the royal wedding in May and she and Meghan have been pals for quite some time.

The Duchess of Cambridge is technically still on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis at the end of April but will happily make an exception for a day out at Wimbledon as she is the patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

Her husband, Prince William, is due to attend the day after to watch the men's singles final on Centre Court.

The ladies final will be the first royal engagement that Meghan and Kate have carried out together and before sitting down to watch the tennis they will be meeting previous Wimbledon champions as well as some of the ball boys and girls.

We can't wait to see what they wear!
