Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have more than the average number of people wanting to meet their new baby boy, Archie. While he’s just a few weeks old, he’s already rubbed elbows with some of the world’s most famous, thanks to his parent’s friends and family.
None other than tennis champ Serena Williams was one of the first people outside the royal family to visit little Archie. According to The Daily Mail, Williams met the baby boy sometime last week along with her husband Alexis Ohanian. Williams then headed off to Paris where she played in the French Open.
While Williams refrained from posting any photos of the baby, she did gram herself in an opulent state room last week, wearing clothes from her own fashion line. It’s unclear if the photo is from her visit to Meghan, though the timing would suggest so.
Williams, an old friend of Meghan’s, attended the royal wedding last year and even hosted Meghan’s baby shower in New York back in February. In April, Williams discussed the great feat of planning the celebration.
“Planning something like that takes a lot of effort. I'm a perfectionist, so I'm like, ‘Let's make it perfect,’” she told Business of Fashion. “It's been a lot the last few days.’
Still, it’s unclear who will snag the title as godmother to Archie. While Meghan and Harry have yet to announce anything official, the reported front runner for godmother is Meghan’s friend, Jessica Mulroney, who has already made the trek from Canada to visit the couple’s new bundle of joy.
