The Special Connection Meghan Markle Shares With Pal Serena Williams

Get the Full StorySerena Williams has been dominating Wimbledon, and on Saturday, the 36-year-old tennis champ will have a special friend cheering her on in the stands: Meghan Markle. On Thursday, Kensington Palace released a statement saying that both Meghan and Kate Middleton would be attending the women's singles final, and we could not be more excited.
