Did Serena Williams Already Meet Baby Archie? This Instagram Post Makes Us Think So

If you want to see the royal baby, you’re going to have to get in line. But Serena Williams has already beaten most people to the punch (or so we think).

The tennis player, who is known to be close with Meghan Markle, just shared a very regal-looking Instagram post that makes us think she was paying a visit to the three-week old royal baby. In the image, she's posing in a stately room, complete with gilded mirrors and marble busts. Frogmore House? Perhaps. The caption gives nothing away, but instead breaks down her #OOTD (a collection of pieces from her eponymous clothing line).

But The Daily Mail claims that Williams met baby Archie sometime last week with her husband, Alexis Ohanian. She *is* currently in Paris for the French Open, so a quick detour to London wouldn't be completely out of the question. And Markle's other BFF, Jessica Mulroney, was in town for a visit recently. Maybe Serena was next on the list?

She's also suspected to be a prime candidate for godmother to the newborn royal, so it makes sense that she would be among the first to see him IRL. She's been friends with Markle since 2010, and attended the royal wedding last May. Already a mom herself, Williams even threw Markle's star-studded baby shower back in February.

As for what the 23-time grand-slam title winner thinks of new mom Meghan? Like she said back in April, “She’ll be the best mom, for sure.”
