Serena Williams has a close friendship with Meghan Markle, but she isn't about to dish all the details about their relationship. While chatting with sister Venus Williams and Naomi Campbell for the model's YouTube series, the tennis player expertly dodged a question about the Duchess of Sussex. When asked how she felt about Meghan moving to the US following her royal exit, Serena joked, "I don't know what you're talking about, don't know nothing about that." She then pulled a Mariah Carey adding, "Never seen her, never heard of her, don't know her . . ."

Though Serena clearly wants to respect Meghan's privacy during her transition back to the US, she has given us a few glimpses of their cute friendship over the years. In addition to attending Prince Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in May 2018, she also called Meghan the "strongest" and "nicest" person she knows during an interview in November 2019. Clearly the feeling is mutual, because Meghan was front and center to cheer on Serena during the 2019 US Open. Catch Serena's reaction to the question about Meghan around the 32:08 mark below.
