Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is back in the states!

The former Meghan Markle made an appearance at the U.S. Open on Saturday to support her longtime friend and tennis pro, Serena Williams, in her match against Bianca Andreescu. If Williams wins, she will nab her 24th Grand Slam singles title, tying current record holder Margaret Smith Court.

This is the duchess’s first time away from her son, Archie, since he was born in May.

The duchess was spotted in the stands of Arthur Ashe Stadium cheering on Williams as she walked onto the court before the match. Also in Williams' section was Alexis Ohanian, her husband, and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.

She kept her look neutral, sporting a belted denim shirtdress and a light gray duster coat draped over her shoulders.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the duchess courtside to support Williams this year. Back in July, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, stepped out with her sister-in-law to attend the ladies’ singles final at Wimbledon to cheer on Williams against Simona Halep for the title.

After the duchess returns to London from New York City, she will kick off her tour in southern Africa with her husband, Prince Harry, and Archie on their first royal trip as a family of three.
