Meghan Markle and Serena Williams have been friends for a couple of years, with Markle uploading pictures of the two on Instagram (when she had an account) and discussing their friendship on her now defunct blog, The Tig. She described Williams as the “confidante” that she’d text while traveling, and as the friend she’d rally around for her tennis matches.
Even though it’s speculated that many celebrities will attend the royal wedding, Serena Williams’ attendance is still unknown, with her politely changing the subject whenever she’s asked about it. No matter what, her friendship with Markle has never been in question.
According to the Huffington Post, Williams has some advice for Markle when it comes to her wedding and making the most out of her situation. Says Williams, “I think if I could give her any advice it would just be to enjoy the preparation and enjoy the planning. It just goes so fast.” She also emphasized enjoying the wedding cake, saying, ” I didn’t get to eat mine at [my] wedding. We were just having so much fun!”
Other celebrities that are expected to attend the royal wedding include Priyanka Chopra, Victoria Beckham, Melanie B, Elton John, Misha Nonoo, and the entire cast of “Suits”.
