ROYAL fans were quick to spot Meghan Markle make a swift exit after watching pal Serena Williams lose at Wimbledon yesterday.
The Duchess of Sussex appeared to bid a hasty farewell to sisters Kate and Pippa Middleton, who stayed behind to watch more tennis after seeing Simona Halep triumph in the women's singles final.
The new mum, 37, was leaving leaving center court – most likely to return to her two-month-old son Archie at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor – at approximately 3.30pm after watching her tennis star friend defeated at 2.56pm.
Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, and Pippa, 35, were in their seats to see the men's doubles final before leaving at 6.30pm – in contrast to last year when the two Duchesses departed together.
Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that Kate's younger sister moved to where Meghan had been in the Royal Box, and Gill Brooks – wife of the Wimbledon chairman Phillip Brook – moved over to her, having been with Prime Minister Theresa May.
Kate was also meeting meeting Simona in the Wimbledon clubhouse to congratulate here, after the champion customs presenter Sue Barker she had hoped to play in front of the Duchess.
Royal fans were quick to share on Twitter how they had noticed Meghan's absence.
Another commented: "Meghan made a swift exit after the final … no show when it came to congratulating Simona."
A third shared: "Apparently Meghan left & Kate and Pippa stayed for the doubles finals."
And a fourth added: "No, Meghan in the Royal Box for the men's doubles match. Not sure if she left or is enjoying the clubhouse."
Other fans praised Pippa and Kate for staying.
One person wrote, "I loved that they stayed for more tennis. We know they are both tennis lovers."
The Duchess' meeting with Simona left another Twitter user delighted, as they shared a video of the moment with the caption: "OMG SIMONA AND CATHERINE."
Amid rumors of a royal feud between Kate and Meghan – and Prince William and Prince Harry – their appearance together at Wimbledon yesterday is widely believed to be a show of unity.
It comes a year after the two Duchesses attended the Wimbledon women's final in their first joint engagement after the royal wedding.
At that moment, the pair were leaving the clubhouse together.
Last week, Meghan was branded a "nightmare" when she visited Wimbledon to watch Serena play and was blasted for "silly control freaky" when her security stopped onlookers taking pictures.
