When is Meghan Markle attending Wimbledon 2018?

Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan will attend Wimbledon’s Ladies’ Singles Finals on Saturday, July 14 with Kate Middleton.

The 36-year-old has attended the tennis championship before.

She was snapped courtside back in 2016, when she and Prince Harry first began dating.

In her signature fedora, Meghan cut a low-key figure as she cheered on the competitors.

Will she sit in the Royal Box?

This time, Meghan has the best seats in the house.

Now a fully-fledged member of The Firm, Meghan can now sit in the Royal Box.

Reserved for royalty or distinguished guests, Meghan won’t have to queue for a ticket anymore.

And with pal Serena Williams on court, she’s got all the more reason to go along.

The tennis ace dropped hints her friend could come to watch her play, depending on if she is still in the competition.

When asked of Meghan would come, the mum-of-one replied: “I don’t know. We’ll see. If I keep winning.”

How did Meghan become friends with Serena Williams?

The two women are firm friends with Serena bagging an invite to Meghan’s wedding, alongside her husband Alexis Ohanian.

They met in 2010 at the Super Bowl, and were pictured there together at the same event in 2014.

In her former blog The Tig, Meghan wrote about Serena: “We hit it off immediately.

“Taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff.”
