As reported by The Times, Meghan took a last-minute trip to New York last week to watch her pal play at the US Open finals against Canadian player Bianca Andreescu.
The Duchess of Sussex boarded a commercial flight from London on Friday morning and was expected to return home that weekend.

Archie's mom donned a chic denim dress by J. Crew underneath a grey coat and accessorized with aviator glasses from Victoria Beckham.
During the match, Meghan was seen passionately cheering her friend whenever she scored and making downcast expression when she didn't. She was also seen chatting with Serena's husband, Alexis Ohanian, at some point.

Many internet users concluded that Meghan was responsible for Serena's loss to Bianca, as the tennis player lost every game Meghan attended this year.

However, it is evident that none of those accusations stand a chance against the undying love Serena has for Meghan.
