Cape Town – Serena Williams and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have been “relying on each other a lot recently.”

The pro tennis player opened up about her relationship with the former Suits actress in an interview with The Project, sharing that they text each other all the time.

“We were actually texting each other this morning,” Serena told The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson.

Pertaining to her loss to 20-year-old Naomi Osaka after a heated argument with the court's umpire Carlos Ramos at the 2018 US Open earlier this month, Serena says media scrutiny - which they both experience on a regular basis - has brought her and Meghan closer.

“You know, we, I think have known each other for a long time. But we really are relying on each other a lot lately,” Serena revealed.

 The besties met in 2014 at a charity flag football event and have stayed close ever since.

Serena and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, attended the royal wedding on 19 May to witness Meghan say ‘I do’ to Britain’s Prince Harry.

Of the wedding, Serena said: “I felt like it was just really, we were literally watching history. And I feel like in a few years we’ll look back at that moment and it’s just going to be so historic, that it’s going to be something people never forget.”
