Needless to say, the internet erupted at the news, with Twitter users struggling to contain their excitement.

Williams and Meghan have been close for years, with the 36-year-old tennis ace attending the royal wedding in May in with her husband, Alexis Ohanian.

It won’t be the only Wimbledon outing for Kate, who will attend the men’s singles final with her husband, Prince William, on Sunday. Her family, including sister Pippa Middleton, have also made repeat appearances at this year’s event.

The duchess is a patron of the Grand Slam tournament, while her new in-law attended two games in 2016. Time to move on up to the royal box!
