Wimbledon: Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton to cheer on Serena Williams

Diede De Groot

This was Williams' 10th final at the All England Club, according to Wimbledon.

Ten months after the hard birth of daughter Alexis Olympia the 36-year-old Williams had powered into her 10th Wimbledon final and looked poised for an eighth crown.

With an opportunity to tie Margaret Court's Grand Slams record on Saturday, Serena Williams came up just short against Angelique Kerber at Wimbledon. The sheer presence of Serena has been so overpowering that I can not but wonder whether the exodus of top seeds was a sense of ominous foreboding that accompanies a champion of her stature.

Emotional after clinching her third Slam, the German bounded up into the players' box to embrace her family and coaching team. I look forward to continuing to be out here and do what I do best. "Now she's supporting me in a different role, but our friendship is still exactly the same", she said.

After this period of confusion, Russian Federation actually ended up introducing a resolution about breastfeeding. The baby formula companies are predominately American or European, including Nestle and Mead Johnson.

Kerber broke the mighty Williams serve three times in the opening set and again in the sixth game of the second and held her nerve to become the first German woman to win the title since Steffi Graf in 1996. Williams returned to the tour in March, making limited appearances without much success. It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappointed.

We were all so focused on the remarkable return of a 23-time Grand Slam champion from maternity leave that we overlooked the Cinderella story unfolding on the other end of the court. "Angelique played really well, played out of her mind".

Kerber defeated Williams to win the Australian Open in 2016 and then, after losing here, lifted the trophy at the US Open.

Now she just needs to win the French Open to complete the career Grand Slam.

It has been dubbed Storm Trump and the country is braced for a USA presidential visit that has split opinion like never before. Evie is also excited to see the planned "Trump baby" blimp which is due to fly over London and Scotland when he visits.

Kerber, cleverly moving Serena into awkward positions, took full advantage, winning four games in a row to wrap up the set. I really can't describe it, to be honest.

The pair arrived ahead of the Ladies' Final this afternoon, which will see Serena Williams face off against Angelique Kerber at 2pm.

Meghan and Williams first met in 2014, at a charity football match.

A insane Friday at the All England Club saw Kevin Anderson and John Isner play the longest semi-final match in the tournament's history before Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal completed slightly more than half of the second-longest semi-final.
