We knew it was slightly too good to be true. Serena Williams took it upon herself this week to shut down one of the most delightful rumors to emerge from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding: that she played beer pong at the reception. Beer pong! Sadly, though, this is just fiction.
“No even remotely true,” Williams told a few news outlets at the French Open this week. “I don’t even drink beer.” We know what you’re thinking: she only says that she doesn’t drink beer. This low-key means the beer pong–ing still could’ve happened even if Williams didn’t play.
But nope. She put this to rest, too, with a very concise statement: “There was no beer pong.” Still, she admitted that her and husband Alexis Ohanian had a “big laugh” over the rumors, and they thoroughly enjoyed their royal wedding experience. Frankly, who wouldn’t?
There are plenty of other amusing rumors circulating about what went down at the royal wedding reception. Personally, we love the image of George Clooney exclusively bartending with tequila and Idris Elba manning the DJ booth.
By far the most poignant rumor, though, is that Markle reportedly broke royal tradition to read a love poem to her new husband. “Meghan totally stole the show. It was the most special part of the entire day and the most unexpected,” a source told The Sun, continuing, “Most of the room was misty-eyed by the final line. Harry looked so proud and had to wipe away a tear.” To be a fly on the wall!
