Serena Williams at Meghan Markleis back.
The tennis professional took the defense of the Duchess of Sussex Thursday after the royal had made the headlines after his appearance at Wimbledon last week.
As the royal admirers will remember, the new mom attended the Championship last Thursday to watch her best friend's match against Kaja Juvan. However, Meghan drew criticism after rumors spread that she had asked her protection officers to tell the audience not to take a picture of her because she was participating in the tournament "privately". Some even drew attention to photos of Meghan sitting next to a few people in the stands with empty rows behind them.
When asked if she hoped that the king would ignore the enemies and continue to watch his matches, Serena said that she "did not know that there was negative media." .
"Every time I see his name attached to anything, I do not read it," she says. "She could not be a best friend for me – weak moments, strong moments – she's still here, that's all I want to be for her."
It can not be denied that the two are close. After all, the two have known each other since 2014 and Meghan invited Serena and the tennis champion's husband. Alexis Ohanian at his royal wedding with Prince Harry. Serena even organized a baby shower for Meghan when she was pregnant with her first child Archie Harrison.
As to whether Meghan will watch Serena play again, it's invisible. After winning his match against Barbora Strycova, the star athlete has secured a place in the tournament finals. Royal admirers will have to wait and see.
