Serena Williams has Meghan Markle's back and she proved it yet again when she addressed the Duchess of Sussex's controversial Wimbeldon outing at a press conference recently. Last week, Meghan Markle had made a surprise trip to the courts, where 23-time grand slam winner Serena was playing against Kaja Juvan. Her outing turned out to be a controversial one as Meghan's bodyguards asked watchers to not click her pictures. A few rows from where Meghan was seated were also cordoned off as the Duchess viewed the match with two of her friends. 

An official organising Meghan’s visit claimed it had been difficult, telling The Times, “It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare.” Meghan was also not invited to the royal box as she turned up for the event wearing jeans breaking the dress code. But that did not make a difference to the Duchess as she only wanted to watch her pal Serena play. 

In a post-match interview, Serena was asked about Meghan's appearance. The pro tennis player said, "You know, I didn't know there was negative media out there. Any time I see her name attached to anything, I don't read it. She couldn't be a better friend to me."

Serena further added, "Low moments, high moments, she's always there. That's all I want to be to her." Serena and Meghan have been friends since Meghan's filming days. Meghan even invited Serena and her husband Alexis Ohanian to her royal wedding with Prince Harry. Whereas, Serena hosted a baby shower for Meghan when she was pregnant with her first child Archie Harrison.
