Wimbledon | Meghan and Kate to watch women’s final together

The Duchess of Sussex will join her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge to watch the Wimbledon women’s final tomorrow.

Kensington Palace confirmed the two Royals will attend the sporting spectacle, which is taking place on Saturday.

“The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and The Duchess of Sussex will attend the Ladies’ Singles Final at The Championships, Wimbledon on Saturday 13th July,” a statement released on Twitter said.

Serena Williams and Simona Halep will face-off in the final, which will be played at 2pm.

Kate will also attend the men’s final on Sunday along with her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, the Palace announced.

Both Duchesses have attended previous days of the tournament and visited last year, in what was their first engagement as a duo.

Meghan’s impromptu visit to see Williams, who is a friend, play last week caused controversy when Royal protection officers told visitors not to take photos because she was there.
