Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will embark on their second joint royal venture tomorrow cheering on the ladies in the Wimbledon final.

Kensington Palace announced the rare engagement, which comes just days after they were spotted together at a polo event with their children.

Meghans good friend Serena Williams will be taking on Romanian player Simona Halep on Centre Court on Saturday afternoon.

It is a year since the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex made their first joint solo outing at the tennis tournament in south London.

Kate was seen on July 2 and cheered on a host of British players as they made their way through the early rounds of the competition.

Meghan attended two days later to support friend Serena, who earlier this year helped throw the royal a baby shower in New York ahead of Archies birth.

Meghans visit to court one attracted controversy after her minders ordered onlookers not to take pictures of the royal.

Spectators said they were not even aware of her presence until they were ordered to put their phones away – despite only using them to get action shots of Serena and Roger Federer.
