Meghan and Kate watch on as Simona Halep is crowned Wimbledon champion

Meghan and Kate watch on as Simona Halep is crowned Wimbledon champion

And their presence hardly went unnoticed.

They were both pictured smiling as they made their way to their seats, with Meghan seated either side of Kate and sister Pippa.

Hasan Hasanov - one of the punters spoken to - said: "I had no idea she was there!"

Meghan and Williams have become friends over the years, with the 23-time grand slam champion invited to her wedding with Prince Harry.

Meghan's previous visit caused controversy after her royal protection officers told spectators not to take pictures of her while watching Williams because she was there "in a private capacity".

To be clear, it seems that the event may be a joke, and even supposed attendees acknowledge that. If you'll be in Nevada on September 20, there's a Facebook event that may pique your interest.

Meghan is good friends with finalist, Serena Williams, who is clashing with Simona Halep in this year's final.

During her first appearance, the Duchess of Sussex, dressed in a blazer and blue jeans, appeared to be wearing a necklace adorned with an "A," - the first initial of her son's name, while seated with two friends among rows of empty seats. She saw she played unbelievable.

Jephson claimed: "She knew it, accepted it and even turned it to her advantage: a few times a run of bad Press for her was miraculously reversed with a front page picture or a glossy magazine cover showing her at her most carefree and stylish in the Wimbledon sunshine". Kate stepped out in a handsome green Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she previously wore during a royal outing with husband Prince William in 2016. After all, this is the second time they have united to attend the Ladies' Singles Final.

When BBC presenter Sue Barker informed the winning finalist on court she was about to meet Kate, Halep replied: "That's wonderful, I didn't know that, so it's even more special now".

TV cameras captured that meeting minutes later, with Halep giving a deep curtsy as she was introduced to Kate before heading out to the balcony to show off her trophy to fans outside. The pro tennis player said, "You know, I didn't know there was negative media out there". "It was really, really impressive, so congratulations and enjoy the celebration".
