Over the weekend, the Duchess of Sussex made her debut in the Wimbledon royal box as she joined sister-in-law Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, to watch the ladies’ singles final.

It marked Meghan and Kate’s first engagement together without their husbands.

For Meghan, it was particularly special as her close friend Serena Williams was playing in the final against Angelique Kerber.

Serena was among the guests at The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding in May.

Tennis icon Serena once told Vanity Fair of Meghan: “Her personality just shines.”

Kerber won 6-3, 6-3 to lift her first Wimbledon title.

Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry were back to work on Tuesday after a busy week.

Last week they attended the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge before a morning spent celebrating the 100th anniversary of the RAF in London that included a balcony appearance for a fly-past.

They jetted to Dublin later that night for their first overseas visit as a married couple.
