Meghan Markle, made a surprise trip to New York to attend Williams’ final U.S. Open match on Saturday against Canada’s Bianca Andreescu. Markle arrived at the match dressed in a gray coat and a J. Crew denim dress, where she greeted Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, before the match began.
This marks the first trip Markle has made to the U.S. since giving birth to her and Prince Harry’s first son, Archie, in May. She previously visited New York City this year for her baby shower in February, which was cohosted by Williams.
