Serena Williams shared a sweet snap alongside Meghan Markle as the Duchess finally released her first podcast episode.

The tennis superstar, 40, uploaded a black-and-white photo of the pair alongside her daughter Olympia, four, to Instagram.

The trio looked extremely cosy in the image as they flashed smiles for the camera. Serena donned a Nike sports vest and jogging pants while carrying her tot. Meghan meanwhile opted for the chic look of a light coat over her denim outfit.

Serena gushed over the former actress in the caption of the post, writing to her 15.2 million followers: “I loved talking about so many important topics with my dear friend Meghan as her first guest on #archetypes for @spotify! It’s out now and worth the listen, especially if you’re ambitious.”

The post was quickly liked by an influx of followers and Paris Hilton was among those replying with heart-eyed emojis. Fashion model Karlie Kloss also shared her appreciation by replying with a number of clapping hands emojis.

Meghan took more digs at the Royal Family in the opening edition of her podcast and also slammed those who had criticised her for being “ambitious” when she first started dating Prince Harry. The “Archetypes” podcast episode one, titled The Misconception of Ambition with Serena Williams, also saw her opening up to her close pal about double standards in the world.

Meghan quit her job as an actress in order to fulfil her duties as a royal in 2020, but her and Harry and their two kids moved to the United States in a bid to leave behind their roles.

Months before quitting, Meghan and Harry completed a controversial African tour in which the former Suits star filmed an interview with ITV in which she explained how she struggled with royal life.

Speaking on her podcast, she opened up about the harsh conditions she was met with during the tour and how she had to leave her son Archie moments after a fire at their property.

While both Meghan and Serena later touched about the struggles they faced being new mothers, the tennis legend confessed Harry actually helped her with her decision to retire from the sport long before it was publicly announced.

Meghan then told Serena: “I think, you know, I think both of us, or the three of us, really know that sometimes the right decision isn’t the easiest decision. It takes a lot of courage, I think, too, to stop something in many ways than to keep going sometimes.”

Other topics broached in the lengthy chat included Meghan writing to Procter & Gamble as an 11-year-old to complain about a sexist soap advert. The pair also discussed how being ambitious as a woman can be met with resentment in some quarters.
