Meghan Markle’s sweet tribute to baby Archie at surprise Wimbledon appearance

Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at Wimbledon yesterday to watch Serena Williams take on Kaja Juvan on Court One.

Taking a break from parenting duties, the Duchess of Sussex was joined by two close friends, Lindsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis, to see tennis star Serena triumph.

The Duchess opted for a stylish, laid back look consisting of a simple black vest top, jeans and a sleek pin stripe blazer. She completed the outfit with a trilby and glamorous cat eye sunglasses.

The Duchess was also sporting a brand new piece of jewellery for the outing – a sweet tribute to baby son Archie, who she welcomed with Prince Harry on 6 May.

Fans were quick to spot the little letter ‘A’ hanging on a delicate gold necklace, which is thought to be by designer Jennifer Meyer and costs £278.

It’s also not the first time the Duchess has been seen wearing a thin gold chain with initials as she previously wore one that sweetly had both ‘H’ and ‘M’ dangling from it.

Meghan, who appeared to be in good spirits as she laughed and joked with her two friends, will be preparing for Archie’s private christening that will take place in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle tomorrow in front of around 25 guests.

However, friend Serena won’t be in attendance as the US athlete said she had prior work commitments. Speaking at a press conference, Serena was quizzed about attending the intimate celebration.

“No, I’m working on Saturday…so, she understands work,” the tennis champion told reporters.

The Queen will also reportedly not be there due to a diary clash. Unfortunately, the Royal had long planned to spend the weekend with Prince Philip at Sandringham, and said it would be difficult to find another day that suited both the royal couple and their friends.

Meghan’s surprise Wimbledon appearance comes a few days after the Duchess of Cambridge attended day two of Wimbledon. This time last year, Meghan and Kate attended together to watch Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber in the Ladies’ Finals.

It was their first public engagement together without Prince Harry and Prince William.
