Meghan Markle's son Prince Archie betrothed to marry Serena Williams daughter Adira River -Revealed their reasons


Serena Williams and Meghan Markle are friendship royalty!

The tennis star and the Duchess of Sussex first met at the Super Bowl in 2010; after crossing paths again in 2014, the two hit it off “immediately” and have been close since.


From Markle’s travels to watch the Grand Slam champ’s tennis tournaments and Williams’ attendance at Markle’s royal wedding to Prince Harry, the two always find time to cheer each other on despite their respectively busy schedules.

“We are both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations – our endless ambition,” Markle previously wrote on her blog The Tig.

In addition to showing up for one another, the two often praise each other publicly and share advice on industry pressures and navigating motherhood.

Here’s a timeline of Williams and Markle’s decade-long friendship.
