Serena Williams is praising her friend, Meghan Markle.
The 39-year-old tennis pro sat down for Stuart Weitzman’s Shine Series for an interview.
During the chat, she called Meghan “the strongest person I know” following her highly publicized interview with husband Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey..
“Meghan is a great person and I think the epitome of strength, the epitome of confidence, the epitome of just selflessness, and the epitome of everything is just her and everything that she’s gone through. I know it’s not easy, and you can see from the interview that it wasn’t easy, but she had so much poise and she still had so much class,” she said.
She added that she doesn’t “know anyone else that could handle everything on such a global scale the way that she’s had to handle things that are just untrue — minute after minute. Not even day after day. Just minute after minute, just another untrue allegation being thrown at her.”

Meghan Markle was wearing Serena Williams’ earrings at an event
In a recent event at Zuiderpark, Netherlands, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry took part in the Land Rover Driving Challenge.
In this challenge, you have to drive a Land Rover car with perfect precision. Also, there were some obstacles that you needed to clear.
Prince Harry took part in this challenge and Markle was cheering him on from the sidelines. Even though they didn’t win this challenge, they sure made some mark in that event. Particularly Meghan, with her amazing dress and jewelry. Interestingly, she was wearing the famous ‘Starburst earrings’ of Serena Williams’ jewelry brand.
