American tennis champ Serena Williams is waxing lyrical about her royal friend Meghan Markle after the latter’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Reflecting on her strength, confidence and selflessness, the 23-time Grand Slam winner made an appearance in the debut episode of Stuart Weitzman’s Shine Series.
The 39-year-old said: “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.”
“And 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,” added the athlete.
Earlier, Williams had also defended Meghan’s character on Twitter, right after the interview aired on March 7.
“I just think that she is the strongest person I know. I don’t know anyone else that could handle anything 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, another untrue allegation being thrown at her,” she wrote.
“I think it was important for me to say something because I’m tired of sitting back and seeing all this negativity that’s just not true,” she added.
