  • Safe to say Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have a close friendship. They hang out together all the time, Serena went to Meghan’s wedding, and Meghan texted Serena following her US Open loss. Basically, like any BFFs, they support each other, and that includes their respective works.

    Which is why the Duchess of Sussex recently wore a blazer from Serena’s fashion collection, during her Royal your of Australia. And it turns out she wasn’t expecting it.

    She told Marie Claire US, ‘We were all just coming out of a photoshoot for the brand when we heard that Meghan wore our line. We had sent stuff to her awhile ago, so we were excited to see it. I’ve known her for years and it’s cool to see your friend help you out without even trying. She just wanted to look good and wear a blazer. The next thing you know it’s our blazer. I was like “Meghan, thanks!” And she was like “why are you thanking me? We’re friends!”‘

    Although her collection didn’t start off just for the Duchess, the blazer was such a hit that she now sends her items designed just for her.

    ‘Since that blazer sold out, now we just have special pieces that are specifically made for Meghan and we send those to her. It’s been fun creating them.’

    We all need a friend like that in our lives.
