However, according to Telegraph, they only became friends as the beginning of 2015, when Serena Williams approached Meghan Markle and suggested that they hang out.
On Meghan’s blog, The Tig,Markle talks about her friendship with Serena.
“We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff. So began our friendship.”
“She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was traveling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down to earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto. 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.”

If tennis royalty, Serena Williams is to be married this year, wouldn’t it be wonderful if her friend was to follow suit? Who’s to say that Meghan won’t be marrying her Prince Harry this year after all?
