Serena Williams Praises Meghan Markle After Wimbledon Visit

Meghan Markle selfie-snapper says he had ‘no idea she was there’ Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will attend Wimbledon together

As Kensington Palace also shared, "The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and The Duke of Cambridge will attend the Gentlemen's Singles Final of The Championships, Wimbledon on Sunday 14th July".

Despite being a public figure, Meghan insisted that she was at the Grand Slam in a "personal capacity" so to watch her friend Serena William play, and therefore off duty.

"I honestly couldn't really care less about taking a picture of Meghan, Harry or any of the royals - and, if I did, I'd ask first", he said.

"Any time I see her name attached to anything, I don't read it", she said.

The Duchess of Sussex arrived around an hour after Kate Middleton, who met with the players first.

Meghan will be out again this evening at The Lion King's London premiere, where she'll walk the red carpet with her husband Prince Harry.

Risking their health: Siberians flock to toxic lake for 'Maldives' selfies
The site has been increasing in popularity with Instagram users, who flock to the area to snap a photo with the otherworldly H20. The bottom of the dump is very muddy, the company warned, adding that getting out of the reservoir alone is almost impossible.

Google Just Launched A New Social Networking App
Shoelace is a hyperlocal app for organizing events and activities, called " Loops ", which makes it similar to Facebook Events. Not unlike a dating site, users are then "tied" together based on their interests, " like two laces on a shoe".

An official organising Meghan's visit claimed it had been hard, telling The Times, "It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare". Though palace officials declined to comment a source told The Daily Mail, "It's not uncommon for personal protection officers accompanying any members of the Royal Family to ask people not to take pictures so they can engage with people and events rather than camera phones".

Hasan, who queued from 5 a.m. and paid £25 for his Court One seat, said he did not know the Duchess was there and thought the bodyguard was asking him not to photograph the players with their shirts off.

This is the second time the sister-in-laws have watched the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final together. This year's match marks their second joint Wimbledon visit, after they sat front row in the royal box last summer for the finals of the tennis tournament.

And if this is a sign the rift has passed, the women's appearance together earlier this week will help confirm it.

Fans cheered loudest for Meghan and Kate.
