Even as the newly appointed Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is still making time for her friends!
A royal source tells ET that Markle -- who was Serena Williams' guest in the players box at Wimbledon in 2016 before her first date with Prince Harry -- is due back to cheer on her friend at this year’s tournament, most likely sometime next week.
"Meghan has been settling into life in London. She’s got a great group of friends and Harry's friends have embraced her warmly. She was at ease this past weekend as Harry played polo for his charities and has been getting prepared for her big trip to Ireland," the source says. "She’s keen to prove how serious she is about her new role and focusing on her new life as a representative of the British royal family."
Following 36-year-old Williams’ first round win against Dutch tennis player Arantxa Rus on Monday, the tennis pro spoke about the possibility of Markle, 36, making an appearance at this year’s competition.
"I don't know, we'll see. If I keep winning," Williams quipped.
