The tennis superstar also praised Meghan - who she has been close with since meeting at a celebrity volleyball event in 2014 - for being a good person.
Kate Middleton capped off a Wimbledon-filled weekend on Sunday with husband Prince William, as the pair caught the men's singles final between Roger Federer of Switzerland and Novak Djokovic of Serbia.
The outing marks the first time the two duchesses have been seen together on their own since rumours of a feud began late previous year. While sheer talent is the clear reason for her win, the star admitted that seeing the Royals gave her that "extra boost" to steal the title.
Saturday's appearance at Wimbledon is the second joint outing this week for Kate and Meghan.
Unfortunately, Williams lost the Ladies Singles Final to Romania's Simona Halep but, seated in the Royal Box on Centre Court, Kate and Meghan seemed to make the most of the rare afternoon spent in each other's company.
"There is a lot of eye contact between the sisters-in-law here too, which, along with the laughter, should be seen as a sign they want to be seen as friendly together", she added. "She saw that she played unbelievably, and that's just the kind of person that she is", she said.
Shervin Abdolhamidi, 24, from NY, another Federer supporter, was hoping to get a resale ticket for Centre Court, despite admitting his chances were "50/50". This time they were joined by Kate's sister, Pippa Matthews, while British Prime Minister Theresa May also sat a few seats away. She's such a fan of the sport.
Kate is a longtime tennis fan and a tennis player.
"Always my family has been into tennis and I think my mum was very proud when I got to sing here", she said.
"I won't be getting cross about this because - to be honest - I had no idea what was going on until days later".
