Serena Williams came to slay at the royal wedding in more ways than one. After making an elegant appearance at the daytime ceremony in a blush pink Versace look (complete with a matching fascinator and never-ending braids), she reemerged for the evening reception in a floral Valentino ball gown and coordinating sneakers. Fellow royal wedding guests should’ve taken the footwear choice as a warning: Serena came ready to kick ass.
The tennis champ flaunted her athletic skills with a game of beer pong at the reception, The Sun reports. Although the celebration took place Frogmore House, one of the Queen’s royal residences, there was clearly some American influences on the party, even in the form of college drinking games.
“played beer pong like it was tennis. Everyone had so much fun with it, there were even fireworks,” an insider from the party told .
Williams is set to play at the French Open later this month, her first grand slam since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, last year. Perhaps the friendly competition at the wedding counts as practice. In fact, she was already seen in Paris practicing at Roland-Garros this morning.
Other fun shenanigans at the reception included a dance-off between Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles (officiated by emcee James Corden). Apparently Meghan and her mom, Doria Ragland, even joined in, a source told The Sun.
Though Serena kept mum on the reception details on social media, she did share plenty of behind-the-scenes moments on Instagram as she got ready for the wedding earlier that morning. Even baby Olympia made an appearance in her wedding prep Instagram stories.
