The Duchess of Sussex will watch her close friend Serena Williams play in a tenth Wimbledon singles final on Saturday.

Such is the German's intensity and focus, she might not even notice any celebrity faces gathered around this rectangle of grass.

She said former Suits actress Meghan had supported her in previous years at Wimbledon and although this time around Meghan will be watching from the royal box, their friendship has not changed.

"She's doing incredible", says the Quantico star.

Austin State University graduate and her friend met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during a trip to the United Kingdom.

Kate will make her debut this year alongside her sister-in-law the Duchess of Sussex, who will be attending the tournament for the first time as a royal.

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

On day two, Meghan, 36, started off the day with President Michael D. Higgins, where she wore a grey Roland Mouret dress, estimated at £1,500.

"I'm really proud to be back in the Wimbledon final, especially after previous year where things weren't like I was expecting".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have only been married a hot minute and they're being bombarded with baby questions.

"There's word on the street", Williams said when asked if Meghan would attend the final. Now she's supporting me in a different role. "The Duchess of Sussex, her highness was looking absolutely stunning on her special day and I have an utter respect and admiration for her". But our friendship is still exactly the same.

If she wins on Saturday, Williams will become the first to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since Goolagong triumphed 38 years ago. She's someone that I've always looked up to for her style.

In the comments, Martin responded, "I didn't but she's so good doing it herself, right?"

Angelique Kerber is chasing her third Grand Slam title. Either way, despite having Wednesday her Prince, it seems Markle definitely isn't about to start shying away from topics she's passionate about-which gives us even more reason to love her.
