Even though Meghan Markle is the Duchess of Sussex, she still has time for friendships — especially the ones she had before becoming royalty. In fact, her bond with BFF Serena Williams is stronger than ever today.

“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” Serena, 36, told The Project in a new interview. “We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently.”

Serena also gushed about attending Meghan’s wedding on May 19. “I felt like we were literally watching history,” the pro tennis player shared. “I feel like in a few years, when I look back at that moment, it’s just gonna be so historic. It’s gonna be something people never forget.”

She continued, “The whole service was really wonderful and most of all, I just wanted to see my friend be happy and I think that’s what happened.”

We’re so glad Meghan has another friend in addition to Jess Mulroney to be there for her as she continues to adjust to life as a royal. Perhaps she’ll soon plan a secret trip to the US to visit Serena like she allegedly recently did to Toronto to see Jess.

“Meghan spent three days holed up at Jessica Mulroney and her husband Ben Mulroney’s home in Toronto,” royal contributor Omid Scobie shared on Good Morning America in late August. “They spent their days catching up, cooking together and, of course, playing with Jessica’s children, who love their ‘Auntie Meg.'” 

Scobie continued, “There was one evening when Meghan and Jessica secretly headed out into the town to meet some of Meghan’s old, good friends.” 

Perhaps Meg’s next girls’ trip will be with Jess and Serena! We’ll just cross our fingers for a selfie of the three if that actually happens…
