A source told the Times, “It is a last-minute trip. Excited to support her friend, and then come back.”

People added that the Duchess of Sussex, who, it’s said, took a commercial flight following the recent private jet backlash, was making the trip without her husband Prince Harry or four-month-old son Archie.


Another insider told royal reporter Omid Scobie that Meghan is “super excited” to be in NYC to cheer Williams on. “It wasn’t originally in the diary, a last minute trip, but you support your friends no matter what.”

The Duchess was seated with William’s husband Alexis Ohanian for the match.

Other celebs in the box included Spike Lee, Taraji Henson, Betty Gilpin, Andy Cohen, Taye Diggs, Uzo Abuba, Rick Fox, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Cara Delevigne, Ashley Benson and Anna Wintour.

She’s expected to return to the U.K. by week’s end.
