Meghan Markle makes surprise Wimbledon appearance to cheer on close friend Serena Williams


The Duchess of Sussex has taken time out from her maternity leave to spend an afternoon in the sunshine watching tennis. She gave birth to son Archie on May 6 and has rarely been seen since. Her surprise appearance comes just a couple of days before Archie’s christening in Windsor on Saturday.

Meghan was spotted at Wimbledon watching the match between Serena Williams and Kaja Juvan on Court One.

She was wearing an ivory jacket with mid length sleeves and a stripe pattern over a black top, with blue jeans.

She also had on sunglasses and was holding a trilby hat.

Meghan took her seat on Court One part way through the Serena’s match.

While there was no sign of the Duke of Sussex or their baby son Archie, Meghan was spotted wearing a necklace with an ‘A’ pendant, as well as sunglasses and a Panama hat.

Her visit to the All England Club comes after her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, made her own surprise trip to SW19 on Tuesday.

Kate enjoyed a behind the scenes tour at the Championships and made the rare move of watching part of Brit Harriet Dart’s match on an outside court.

Meghan arrived on one of the hottest days of the tournament so far this year, with temperatures expected to reach 26C.

Other famous faces at Wimbledon on Thursday included ex-Chancellor George Osborne, retired broadcaster Sir Trevor McDonald and former British tennis player Tim Henman.

Andy Murray is later set to play is first match at Wimbledon in two years as he begins his men’s doubles campaign.

He will be Serena Williams’s partner in the mixed doubles competition.
