Looks like Meghan Markle isn't the only royal family member Serena Williams looks up to!
The 36-year-old tennis pro is featured on the cover of InStylefor August, and in honor of the magazine's first-ever "Badass Women" issue, she was asked who she thinks is the No. 1 badass.
"Well, obviously Beyoncé," she gushes. "That goes unsaid. Rihanna goes unsaid. Kate Middleton!"
Williams -- who shares one child, baby girl Alexis Olympia, with husband Alexis Ohanian -- continues on, marveling over how impressed she was when Middleton stepped out of the hospital and took pictures for the press just moments after giving birth to her and Prince William's third child, Louis, in April.
"She was … standing!" Williams raves. "So, she’s officially No. 1."
