Duchesses Meghan and Catherine set to attend Wimbledon final

Pippa Middleton joined her sister, Kate, and Meghan Markle in the Royal Box to watch the Wimbledon women's singles final in London on Saturday. Meghan and Kate were all smiles as they sat together in the Royal Box on Centre Court.

Both Kate and Meghan have attended this year's Wimbledon on separate solo occasions.

The pair also watched the 2018 Women's Singles final together, so it's possible that this is a budding tradition.

Despite being a public figure, Meghan insisted that she was at the Grand Slam in a "personal capacity" so to watch her friend Serena William play, and therefore off duty.

Serena Williams appeared to defend her friend Meghan, who was heavily criticised after her royal protection officers told spectators not to take pictures of her at a previous Wimbledon appearance.

That might be quite the fitting nickname for Meghan Markle as she has flouted rules in favour of her privacy. "She, too, was happy for Simona".

When asked about the negative press, Williams said she never reads anything about Meghan in the news.

"Really well done, honestly it was inspiring to watch", she said. It's so good to have people like that just to know. The delivery of baby Archie was kept a secret, she refused to pose for a picture on hospital steps after giving birth and now, the Wimbledon incident could be used as justification for the new nickname.

"It seemed insane to me because all I did was take a selfie to send to my wife", Hasanov said of his prime seats.

TV cameras captured that meeting minutes later, with Halep giving a deep curtsy as she was introduced to Kate before heading out to the balcony to show off her trophy to fans outside.

"You know, winning in this position, it's very nice, it's unforgettable", the tennis player added.

Snigur trailed 4-1 in the opening set before winning five straight games, then came from 3-0 down in the second set. And I'll stay a fan of the royals, ' he said. Just days earlier, Kate attended with British tennis players Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong, where they supported Brit Harriet Dart, who played against the U.S.'s Christina McHale.

The Wimbledon win is Snigur's first major title.
