The sisters-in-law will attend the women's singles final of Wimbledon on Saturday to watch the Duchess of Sussex's pal Serena Williams fight it out for the title.

Germany's Angelique Kerber returns the ball to US player Serena Williams during their women's singles final match on the day 12 of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at All England Lawn Tennis Club in London, July 14, 2018.

Kerber is seeking to add a first Wimbledon title to her Australian and U.S. Open victories, which both came in 2016.

Catherine, a patron of Wimbledon, is still officially on maternity leave but has made a few public appearances, including her youngest son Louis' christening, and the Queen's birthday celebrations at Trooping the Colour.

The women last played each other in 2016, when Williams beat Kerber. She got past Germany's Görges without really breaking sweat and has enough energy to take on the next German in line.

During the tournament, Kerber has been fairly more dominant in the shorter rallies, ending in no more than four shots but Serena got the better of the German on two tricky short balls, that Kerber couldn't get back. She was playing in the fourth tournament of her comeback.

'I'm just me, that's all I can be.

Williams explained that Markle's come to support her during Wimbledon over the past couple of years and now, her role and position has changed, but that their friendship remains very much the same.

Kerber, who won 6-3, 6-3, chased down the 23-time Grand Slam champion's attacks and forced her into long rallies, which led to mistakes by Williams. "That was the hardest part - accepting that I didn't", Williams said.

"I'm sure you'll win your next Grand Slam soon so congratulations for coming back".

Moments later, Serena's misery was complete as a tame return left Kerber wiping away tears of joy.

Her early-season woes though seem to be distant past as the 36-year-old has been at her dominant best in the ongoing grass-court Grand Slam tournament in London. I felt really glad that I posted that.

The final started more than two hours late, because they had to wait for the end of Novak Djokovic's five-set victory over Rafael Nadal in a men's semifinal that was suspended the night before.
