She's considered tennis royalty, so it's probably fitting that Serena Williams has invited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to her forthcoming wedding.

The pair are said to be top VIP guestlist for the Wimbledon champ's eagerly-anticipated nuptials to boyfriend Alexis Ohanian, which are expected to take place later this year.

According to a report in The Sun , Serena's long-standing friendship with Meghan is what formed the basis for the invite.

Now the tennis players are even more desperate to ensure they score an invite for themselves so they can party with royalty.

“No date has been announced yet but Serena has made it clear who should be keeping their diary free so they can celebrate her big day.”

The Mirror have contacted representatives for both parties, but are yet to receive a response.

The 34-year-old revealed her engagement story on Reddit – the website Alexis co-founded in 2005 – with a short poem.

The pair first met in 2015 at a lunch and started dating in October of that year.

While they're not the most public of celebrity couples, Alexis has been supporting Serena's tennis career since they first got together - and he posted a public congratulations on his Instagram when she won the 2016 Wimbledon women's final.
