Meghan Markle Wears Serena Williams’ Blazer on Royal Tour, and She’s Loving It
By Rachel McRady
The Duchess of Sussex threw her friend, Serena Williams, some support while on her royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.
Meghan Markle stepped out in Dubbo, Australia, on Tuesday for her second day of engagements in a gray plaid blazer. As it turns out, the jacket was designed by none other than Williams.
Of course, her tennis pro pal noticed the fashion nod, posting a photo of Meghan to her Instagram account, writing, “The face you make when you and Meghan have matching @serena blazers #BeSeenBeHeard.”
This isn’t the first time Williams has publicly spoken out in support of Meghan’s work since becoming a royal. Last month, she praised her friend's taking part in Hubb Community Kitchen's cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook.
“I used to call you Meghan (and I still do) but dear Duchess of Sussex your first project 'Together' a cookbook bringing women of all cultures together,” she began, “I could not be more excited about it and proud of you. It’s beautiful — diversity, inclusivity, coming together in grief or joy — there is just so much love.”
In addition to supporting her pal, Meghan also used her fashion to make a statement on Tuesday. The Duchess sported black jeans from Outland Denim, a company who works to help sex trafficking victims in Cambodia.
She paired the look with a white button-down Maison Kitsune top and black heeled J.Crew boots.
