The Duchess of Sussex went during Serena's final competition against Canadian star, Bianca Andreescu, Daily Mail noted. Serena and Meghan became inseparable when they met at the 2010 Super Bowl party.

During an interview with Access Hollywood, Serena said

"She flew all the way with a newborn to see me play in New York and flew all the way back that night, and I probably couldn't have done that." 

Before the reveal, the assumption was that the new mother left Archie with his dad, Prince Harry, Daily Mail narrated.

However, Serena confirmed that the then four-month-old boy came on a quick trip with his mom. Meghan boarded a commercial flight from London Heathrow with her son.
