Serena Williams and Meghan Markle are more than just friends.
The tennis champion spoke about her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in a recent interview with Australia’s “The Project,” in which she said they stay in touch regularly.
“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” said Williams, adding, “We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently.”
The women reportedly met in 2010 and their bond has grown stronger ever since. In May, the athlete and husband Alexis Ohanian attended Markle’s historical wedding to Prince Harry.
“To have such a monumental moment in England, nonetheless of all the places, I felt like we were literally watching history,” Williams said of the royal wedding. “I feel like in a few years we are going to look back at that moment and it’s going to be so historic. It’s going to be something that people never forget. The whole service was really wonderful, and most of all I just wanted to see my friend be happy. And I think that’s what happened.”
And we are super happy for them, too!
