"I was really happy to get this far. For all the moms out there, I was playing for you today"— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 14, 2018

Meghan Markle and Serena Williams have a rain or shine kind of friendship. The Duchess of Sussex stepped out with sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, to cheer on Serena at Wimbledon, and she couldn't help but shed some proud tears for her friend along the way.
Serena went head-to-head with fellow tennis pro Angelique Kerber at the women's finals on July 14, and while she finished as runner-up, it's clear it took a powerhouse to make it that far. During an interview, Serena was praised as a "super human, super mom" and while the 36-year-old athlete modestly denied the compliments, a video shows Meghan tearing up in the stands around 40 seconds in. While the royals are famously polite and reserved in their support at public events, it's clear Serena has a special place in Meghan's heart — she was a guest at the royal wedding, after all.
