Meghan Markle looks deflated as friend Serena Williams LOSES Wimbledon final

Meghan, who also wowed the Wimbledon crowds in a Ralph Lauren shirt and high-waisted pants, was of course supporting her close friend Serena Williams, who played Angelique Kerber in the final - returning to the tournament for the first time since having her daughter just 10 months ago.

Kerber looked impeccable during her 6-3, 6-3 win over Ostapenko where she dragged her young opponent all across the court.

The 30-year-old German lost to Williams in the 2016 Wimbledon final. She'll go for her record 24th Grand Slam title and eighth at Wimbledon on Saturday behind just Martina Navratilova's nine titles on the grass courts.

Williams, in her first major championship since giving birth to her daughter, Olympia on September 1, is playing just her fourth tournament since returning to action in March. "But our friendship is still exactly the same", she said. "I was really happy to get this far", said Serena during an on-court interview with the BBC.

Kensington Palace announced the news on Twitter, adding that Catherine would be back with William on Sunday to watch the men's final.

Queen Elizabeth II and President Donald Trump inspect an honour guard at Windsor Castle, July 13, 2018 in Windsor, England. Of those, President Obama, George W Bush and Ronald Reagan have all been hosted at Windsor Castle with their spouses.

The two duchesses will be watching an important game at the Ladies' Singles Final, with Williams up against Germany's Angelique Kerber. I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started. To all the mums out there, I was playing for you today, and I tried but Angelique played really well, she played out of her mind.

The American lacked consistency and finished the set with her 14th unforced error to Kerber's three.

The former champions began their match after 8 p.m. local time on Friday after Kevin Anderson defeated John Isner in the second-longest match in Wimbledon history. These aren't baby steps she's taking, these are giant strides. Two of those matches came in Grand Slam finals.

For Williams, today's final marks the culmination of a insane 10 months that has seen her become a mother for the first time.

She was off the tour for more than a year after her Australian Open title in January 2017 - won while she was pregnant, she later revealed.
