Serena Williams was Asked about Meghan Markle, This is What She Said

Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have been really close friends as the latter was often spotted attending the tennis player’s matches

Famous sports personality, Serena Williams is currently playing in the Australian Open. Following her first round win against Anastasia Potapova, Serena sat in a post-match interview where she was asked several questions. But how many times are sports people - and even actors - asked about things that have nothing to do with their work life? Likewise, one of the reporter at the interview asked Serena about one of her close friends, Meghan Markle. The reporter had questioned her about Meghan’s decision to step back from the Royal family, to which the tennis player was quick to respond.

Serena said, “I have absolutely no comments on anything with that. But good try. You tried. You did good.” The reporter has asked her if she had been in touch with the Duchess of Sussex ever since her move to Canada. Serena and Meghan have been close friends for quite a while. Meghan attended several of Serena’s games in the past, whereas Serena was also spotted at Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry back in 2018 - which proves how close the two are.

On the other hand, Meghan and Prince Harry have been making a lot of headlines ever since they announced their decision to step back from ‘senior’ member positions from the Royal family. Media went in a frenzy and reporters started targetting Meghan for “breaking” the family. However, the Buckingham Palace later released a statement on behalf of the Queen that read, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties. The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family."
