At the Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian's gender reveal party, there was a notable absentee, whose absence sparked comments from fans on social media: Meghan Markle. During the baby shower and the gender recveal party, Serena, Alexis and their five-year-old daughter Olympia were surrounded by family and close friends.
But the thunderous absence of the wife of Prince Harry of England, a great friend of Serena Williams, concerned her fans.
Here are the most prominent comments on Twitter/X:

Serena Williams is the latest in the long list of celebrities that avoided Meghan like the plague ...and the list goes... the Bidens, Oprah, the Obamas, the Clooneys, the Beckhams, M. Carey, Whitherspoon, Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, the gov of Ca." @S1CT said: "Perhaps Markle was protesting Serena's "gender reveal" of her baby." @deecelt told: "Maybe Serena didn't want the toxicity, the baby shower should be about her baby rather than Meg bringing Netflix or a pap stroll." @boxmontessori explained: "If Meghan had been invited, the paps would of been called!!!
So not friends with Serena anymore!!!!!! Meghan Markle is nowhere to be seen at Serena Williams's baby shower." @noneoftherest wrote: "But her PR team has said ahead of this news, that she has “new” friends." @MeyerDina70336 said: "After Meghan gorged herself on the fame reflected from Serena in the Archetypes Podcast I am not one bit surprised if they are no longer friends.
If I was Serena I would feel tainted by Meghan's self obsession during the interview." @EllGee121 told: "Any second now we'll see how Megs was too busy to attend and had to turn down the invite when everyone knows she wasn't invited." @KingofPopTweets added: "She's probably not invited."
