Rumours of a royal feud fell by the wayside on Sunday when Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle attended Wimbledon to watch Serena Williams take on Simona Halep in the Women’s Singles Final.
Photos and video from the match show the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex laughing and joking as they sat next to each other. This marks the second joint appearance for the sisters-in-law this week, when they attended a charity polo match together on Wednesday.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, reports indicate that Middleton arrived ahead of Markle in order to have lunch with former Wimbledon champions and club members, with the official Wimbledon Twitter account

The Duchess wore bespoke green Dolge & Gabbana midi dress that she previously wore when she visited Kelowna during her 2016 royal tour of Canada alongside husband Prince William.
The duchesses arrived together, and were joined by Middleton’s sister, Pippa Middleton, who sat next to Markle, who wore a white button-down shirt paired with a pleated white Hugo Boss skirt.

Unfortunately for Markle, her pal Serena Williams lost the match to Halep, who was quoted by The Guardian after the match. “It’s an honour to play in front of the Royal Box,” she said. “I don’t have the words to explain.”
