The widespread reports of a clash of personality between the pair have persisted for months with some royal commentators even claiming William and Harry had fallen out over it. "And always positive, no matter what", Williams said.

The joint outing on Saturday marked Meghan's second visit to Wimbledon during this year's tournament and her appearance alongside Kate Middleton and sister Pippa appeared to put to rest criticism the Duchess of Sussex sparked during her first call to the tennis courts.

Meghan and Kate sat side by side in the royal box.

"Meghan's trait of raising both her cupped hands towards her face as she talks to Kate is a cute, quasi-infantile ritual that implies a desire to show you're chatting to a best friend and sharing your message behind a partial cut-off".

Kate and Meghan - who have been at the centre of feud rumours for months - both attended the exclusive tennis event a year ago, too.

At the game, Kate arrived wearing a custom Cinderella blue Emilia Wickstead dress in a crepe fabric and short sleeves.

Meanwhile, a 4-3 penalty shoot-out also on Thursday secured Algeria's progression against tournament favourites Ivory Coast . In the second half, Ivory Coast's Jonathan Kodja pushed the game into extra time with a shot into the left-hand corner.

She was then told she'd be given the chance to meet Kate Middleton, to which she replied, "That's fantastic".

Ahead of the match, Kate Middleton and Prince William met members of the All-England Club, which is an organization that runs the championships and the Duchess of Cambridge is a patron of.

She said: "That's incredible - I didn't know that, it is more special now".

The 37-year-old sporting champion, who was a guest at Kate's sister Pippa's wedding to James Matthews, allegedly described the young boy as "cute" with "good" tennis technique. Just days earlier, Kate attended with British tennis players Katie Boulter and Anne Keothavong, where they supported Brit Harriet Dart, who played against the U.S.'s Christina McHale.

They weren't enough to hide the Duchess's nerves however, with the royal making several jittery asides to her sister-in-law.
