Meghan Markle Tearing Up at Wimbledon 2018

Aw! Meghan Markle Tears Up Watching Close Friend Serena Williams at Wimbledon

Meghan Markle and Serena Williams have a rain-or-shine kind of friendship. The Duchess of Sussex stepped out with sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, to cheer on Serena at Wimbledon, and she couldn't help but shed some proud tears for her friend along the way.

Serena went head-to-head with fellow tennis pro Angelique Kerber during the women's finals on July 14, and while she finished as runner-up, it's clear it took a powerhouse to make it that far. During an interview, Serena was praised as a "super human, super mum," and while the 36-year-old athlete modestly demured at the compliments, a video shows Meghan tearing up in the stands around 40 seconds in. While the royals are famously polite and reserved in their support at public events, it's clear Serena has a special place in Meghan's heartshe was a guest at the royal wedding, after all.
