Two years after losing to Williams with a title on the line at Centre Court, Kerber came through.
7-time champion Serena had reached the final and been declared the favourite despite just returning from birthing her child in September. I think Wimbledon is something special.
She is the first German to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since Steffi Graf in 1996. As Williams reflected afterwards, she was "really happy to get this far", and that was certainly a rare achievement.
"If you look at it that way, it was probably really the only way to schedule it, yeah". So she was as expert at this formality as she has proven expert in tennis itself over her remarkable career. Kerber clinched the coveted trophy, denying Williams a chance to grab her 24th Grand Slam title.
Kensington Palace announced the news on Twitter, adding that Catherine would be back with William on Sunday to watch the men's final.
Seven-time champion Williams had been bidding to claim a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam crown but made too many errors as Kerber ran out a comfortable victor in the final.

After Williams held serve, all eyes were on Kerber, including those of British royalty.
While Williams' 2018 Wimbledon campaign has marked not least a remarkable comeback since maternity leave - her daughter, Alexis Olympia, was born in September a year ago - Kerber, too, has been making a comeback of sorts.
Williams had fought back from a set down in the quarter-finals against Camila Giorgi, but the fighting spirit was clearly spent this time. As she admitted in Being Serena, a recent documentary, they also lurked in her mind. "To all the mums out there, I was playing for you today and I tried".
Williams said: "We've always had a wonderful friendship".
"It's obviously disappointing, but I can not be disappointed". On Sunday, Djokovic will play Kevin Anderson, who won his semifinal against John Isner 26-24 in the fifth set Friday night. And Kerber also credits Graf with giving her the mental belief in 2015 that she could be a grand slam victor.
After taking the opening two points, she made four miscues in a row to get broken.
