Serena Williams will always have Meghan Markle’s back. After sharing a heartfelt tribute to Meghan following her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the tennis player showed her support for Meghan once again during the debut episode of Stuart Weitzman’s Shine Series. During the interview, Serena noted why it was so important for her to speak out publicly about her longtime friend.
“Meghan is a great person, and I think the epitome of strength, the epitome of confidence, the epitome of just selflessness, and the epitome of everything is just her and everything that she’s gone through,” Serena said. “I know it’s not easy, and you can see from the interview that it wasn’t easy, but she had so much poise, and she still had so much class.”
She also noted that Meghan is “the strongest person I know,” adding that she doesn’t “know anyone else that could handle everything on such a global scale the way that she’s had to handle things that are just untrue — minute after minute. Not even day after day. Just minute after minute, just another untrue allegation being thrown at her.”
Serena and Meghan first met and bonded at the Super Bowl in 2010 and have been friends ever since. While Meghan has attended a handful of Serena’s matches at the US Open and Wimbledon, Serena was front and center for Meghan’s 2018 nuptials to Prince Harry. We love seeing these two incredible women show their support for one another! See Serena’s sweet words about Meghan around the 20:37 mark.
