Meghan Markle is having the most enviable New York City trip right now. Yesterday afternoon, her friends threw her a beautiful baby shower at a swanky uptown hotel, which reportedly included lots of brightly-hued flowers, a literal orange tree, and, of course, presents. She then capped off the day with a low-key dinner with her good friend, the G.O.A.T Serena Williams. Casual.
Photographers snapped Markle, Williams, and Markle’s other good friends, Jessica Mulroney and Markus Anderson, leaving dinner at Ralph Lauren’s restaurant The Polo Bar on Tuesday night (February 19). Everyone was dressed comfortably, with Markle opting for a peacoat and boots while Williams wore glasses and a black trench coat. Williams and Mulroney had attended Markle’s baby shower earlier in the day, according to People.
Here’s photographic evidence this dinner happened. First up: A photo of Markle and Williams. (Well, Williams is in the far corner of the pic, but it’s no-less proof they hung out.)
Below, a photo of Markle getting into her car, looking as chic as ever.
And a snap of her with friend Markus Anderson:
Now, a final shot of Williams in the same outfit as above.
Imagine going to dinner with the G.O.A.T and a literal duchess. I wonder what they talked about! In all seriousness, Meghan Markle and Serena Williams are quite close—their friendship dates back to 2010—so they probably had a ton to catch up on.
Williams and Markle do keep in touch, though. The tennis champ recently opened up to People about what a typical conversation with her royal best friend is like. “I’m like, ‘How are you?’ and she’s like, ‘No, how are you?’ and I’m like, ‘You’re so sweet, but I’m really asking – how are YOU?’ ” Williams said. “I’m like, ‘Meghan, stop being so nice…you’re the pregnant one, aren’t you supposed to have hormones, why are you so sweet?’ But that’s always been her.”
