Serena Williams has revealed she wore trainers underneath her dress for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception.

The tennis champion wore a stunning Versace dress for the wedding itself but changed into a floral Valentino number for the evening reception at Frogmore House.

Pictures of the floor-length gown did not reveal her feet, but Williams has now given fans on social media a peek at her shoes.

She posted a short video to Instagram and wrote: “Little known fact: I often wear sneakers under my evening gown.

“These @maisonvalentino @pppiccioli gave to me last min.

“I told him be careful; I tend to be comfy for long nights #beingserena.”

Williams attended the wedding with her husband Alexis Ohanian.
