Serena Williams says she and Meghan Markle ‘are relying on each other a lot’

Serena Williams knows she can always count on pal Meghan Markle to have her back.

Discussing her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in an interview with Australia’s “The Project,” which took place three days after her US Open defeat, Williams, 36, said she and Markle, 37, stay in touch regularly.

“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” revealed the tennis ace.

“We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently,” she added.
While Markle supported Williams at Wimbledon over the summer, the newest member of the royal family missed her friend’s outburst on the court at the Open earlier this month.

Williams exploded on chair umpire Carlos Ramos after being penalized for getting coached on the side by her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. She believes she was unfairly treated because of her sex.

Serena Williams wore sneakers to royal wedding reception

Serena Williams is a fan of comfy kicks on and off the court.

Like the rest of the royal wedding guests, the tennis great, 36, changed into a second outfit in between Saturday morning’s ceremony and the evening reception. She traded her pink Versace dress and matching fascinator for a floral Valentino gown, new Bulgari jewels, and a pair of sneakers perfect for dancing the night away.
