The Duchesses Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Kate's sister Pippa were all seen sitting in the front row at the Wimbledon Women's singles final.

The duchess, patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), also briefly met with Patrick Williams, its senior project manager for the recent redevelopment of No 1 Court and Gareth Healy from project contractor Sir Robert McAlpine.

It will be the second trip to Wimbledon for both women - Kate made a trip to Court 14 to watch the UK's Harriet Dart, before heading to Centre Court to watch Roger Federer in action.

Meghan Markle joined her just before the start of the match and is sat in between Kate and her sister, Pippa Matthews.

Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have been friends for a long time, with Williams attending Meghan and Harry's wedding previous year. "Low moments, high moments, she's always there", Williams said.

Hasan, who queued from 5 a.m. and paid £25 for his Court One seat, said he did not know the Duchess was there and thought the bodyguard was asking him not to photograph the players with their shirts off.

"She saw that she played unbelievably, and that's just the kind of person that she is", Williams explained.

Meghan was also not invited to the royal box as she turned up for the event wearing jeans breaking the dress code.

This is the second event that they're attending as a duo, the first being Wimbledon past year for the Women's final between Angelique Kerber and Serena Williams.

Meghan and Catherine were spotted together earlier this week when the Duchess of Sussex took her two-month-old son, Archie, to his first polo match - in one of his first outings since birth.

For Williams, who is married to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of the Reddit website, Saturday's defeat is her third grand slam final loss since giving birth in September 2017.

"I'm actually working on Olympia's game".

"We like to do a lot of sports with Olympia". The Prime Minister, Theresa May, was also there, ten days ahead of leaving office.
