Serena Williams has hailed her "wonderful" friendship with the Duchess of Sussex, as it was revealed the new royal will cheer the American on in the Wimbledon final.

Such is the German's intensity and focus, she might not even notice any celebrity faces gathered around this rectangle of grass.

"Every time I go out there, I want to, I guess, take a giant step forward", she said.

When fans asked Daniel if he was responsible for creating the glowy look, he responded: "I didn't but she's so good doing it herself!".

Williams and Meghan have been close for years, with the 36-year-old tennis ace attending the royal wedding in May in with her husband, Alexis Ohanian.

There will be a couple of duchesses in attendance on Saturday.

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle on Wednesday wrapped up a two-day visit to Ireland, the first official overseas visit ever paid by the royal couple since their marriage in May.

Kate and husband Prince William will also attend the men's singles final on Sunday afternoon.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year. Only one nominations category is all-white, and in three categories minority actors account for more than half the nominees.

Kate and Meghan have a supportive friendship, and Kate has helped show Meghan the ropes.

"I'm really proud to be back in the Wimbledon final, especially after a year ago where things weren't like I was expecting".

Prince Harry also discussed other family matters during the trip to Dublin, including how many children he and Meghan would like to have.

Ahead of the royal's appearance, mum-of-one Serena said she and the former Suits actress "have always supported each other".

An avid tennis fan, Kate has attended nearly every year since becoming a royal, is patron of The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and famously had a tennis court built at her Amner Hall home.

The Duchess of Sussex, who starred as Rachel Zane for seven seasons on USA's Suits, told an Irish well-wisher that she misses acting. She's someone that I've always looked up to for her style.

But if she emerges victorious, she will equal Margaret Court's grand slam singles record as she claims her eighth Wimbledon title.

Following another two months away from competition, she entered the French Open in late May, and won three matches before pulling out before the fourth round because of an injured pectoral muscle.
