Kate, 33, will also attend the gentleman’s singles final on Sunday alongside Prince William.

This will be the first Wimbledon royal box experience for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, although the 36-year-old has attended the tournament in previous years before meeting now-husband Prince Harry.

It will be a particularly special day out for Meghan, as she’s known to be good friends with Serena, 36, who was among the guests invited to the royal wedding in May.

Serena told reporters this week that she and Meghan have “always had a wonderful friendship”.

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.

“We always have supported each other, just been there for each other through a lot,” said Serena.

“I look forward to it.”

Serena gave birth to her first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, less than a year ago and if she wins Wimbledon, she’ll be the first mother since 1980 to pick up the trophy.

It’s been a busy week for the royals with multiple public appearances.

They started the week with 11-week-old Prince Louis’ christening on Monday, which marked the first time The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had been pictured with all five children. They’re also parents to George, four, and Charlotte, three.
