Serena Williams has opened up about her friendship with Meghan Markle.

The tennis player, who has known the Duchess of Sussex since 2014, attended Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

Aside from it being her dear friend’s wedding, Serena has since described the Royal Wedding as a “monumental day for for African Americans.”

Speaking to The Project, the mother-of-one said, “I felt like it was just really, we were literally watching history.”

“And I feel like in a few years we’ll look back at that moment and it’s just going to be so historic, that it’s going to be something people never forget.”

Serena also opened up about the intense media scrutiny that comes with being famous, and admitted that she and Meghan have been “relying on each other a lot lately”.

The 36-year-old has had a tough time as of late, following her loss at the 2018 U.S. Open.

The sports star lost to 20-year-old Naomi Osaka, but before that, Serena got into a heated argument with the court’s umpire Carlos Ramos, which led to her calling out sexism on the tennis court.

Speaking about Meghan, Serena said, “We were actually just texting each other this morning.”

“We have known each other for a long time. We really are relying on each other a lot lately.”
