The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex will attend Wimbledon this weekend to cheer on Meghan Markle's close friend Serena Williams in the women's singles final. When Williams defeated Kerber in the 2016 Wimbledon final, she was supported by royalty of a different kind, with Beyonce and Jay Z among her supporters.
Then world No. 1 Kerber suffered a dramatic dip in form during a terrible year, seeing her ranking slide out of the top-20, while Williams called time on her season after winning the Australian Open in order to give birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia.
Kerber had endured a significant slump a year ago after wining her previous major titles at the Australian and US Opens in 2016.
Just 10 months after giving birth, Williams can complete an incredible comeback as she bids to become the first mother to win the tournament for 38 years.
She played doubles with her sister Venus Williams at the Fed Cup in February.
During the trip, all eyes were on Meghan's many outfit changes and fabulous looks as the newlyweds hopped from one engagement to another. That should be a compelling enough reason for the new duchess and her sister-in-law to pop by the courts for a spot of tennis-watching.

She briefly hit back, breaking to love in the fourth game, but then produced another error-strewn effort, including two double faults, to gift a 4-3 lead to Kerber.
Kerber reached the final via a 6-3, 6-3 win over Jelena Ostapenko.
The match is being played with the Centre Court roof closed - the same conditions that the first three sets were played under.
Saturday's matchup is a rematch of the 2016 Wimbledon final, when Williams beat Kerber.
I think today there was one ball which I really explained to me how I felt probably the last five years of not making the ball where it landed right next to me, and I was not able to hit that ball because it jumped somewhere else.
The pair arrived ahead of the Ladies' Final this afternoon, which will see Serena Williams face off against Angelique Kerber at 2pm.
