After baby Archie's birth in early May, Meghan Markle has (very understandably) been taking a break from her royal duties. Still, every now and then, something comes up that she feels obliged to attend—as was the case today at Wimbledon.

The Duchess arrived at the tennis tournament wearing a casual look: jeans, a black shirt, and a striped blazer. She accessorized the look with dark shades and a Panama-style hat, and a delicate necklace with an "A" for Archie. She was seen watching her close friend Serena Williams play on court one, and was spotted sitting with Lyndsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis, two women she has known since college.

This is Meghan's second time attending Wimbledon as a member of the royal family. Last summer, she went with her new sister-in-law Kate Middleton. The pair spent the day meeting ball boys and girls, lunching at the club, and of course, watching some thrilling tennis matches. The highlight of the day was Serena Williams's finals match—both because the tennis star is among the best athletes to ever live, and she also happens to be Meghan's good friend.

That day, Meghan wore a blue-and-white striped shirt and wide-legged trousers, both from Ralph Lauren, paired with an Altuzarra bag. Her outfit went well with Kate's blue-and-white patterned dress—so well, that fans speculated they'd coordinated their looks beforehand.

Meghan went to Wimbledon in her pre-Duchess days too. She was spotted in the crowd in 2016, sporting sunglasses and a white straw hat. It would have been right around the time when she started dating her future husband, Prince Harry.

She's come a long way in her few years at Wimbledon—all the way to the Centre Court's Royal Box.
