Serena Williams and Meghan Markle are close friends—so close, in fact, that Williams planned an extravagant baby shower for the Duchess of Sussex back in February. Given their tight-knit relationship, it makes sense that the tennis star has already found time to visit Markle and spend some quality time with her new baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
According to the Daily Mail, Williams is one of the first of Markle's celebrity friends to meet the royal baby. The outlet claims that Williams "popped in to see him last week, making a flying visit before she headed for Paris to prepare for the French Open tournament...[she] was accompanied by her husband Alexis Ohanian, 36, and their one-year-old daughter Olympia."
While Williams hasn't confirmed the visit, she did post a few photos on Instagram, and they all seem to have been taken in a state room in London. In one post, she simply wrote, "Here’s to my 11million followers dance. Thanks everyone. I love all of you!!!" Her followers wrote back questions, wondering if she was on royal grounds with Markle.
“Planning something like that takes a lot of effort. I'm a perfectionist, so I'm like, ‘Let's make it perfect,’” she said. “It's been a lot the last few days."
Now that the baby is here, she isn't the only person eager to spend time with him. Sources recently spotted Markle's best friend, Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney, boarding a plane to London. She had mentioned taking a mother-daughter trip with her six-year-old daughter, Ivy, on Instagram, immediately igniting rumors that she was off to see the Duchess and her newborn. It seems like Archie already has had quite a few visitors, and there are still tons more people who can't wait to meet him.
