Meghan Markle showed up to cheer on tennis champion Serena Williams at the U.S. Open Finals on Saturday. Although Williams ended up losing the match to 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu, Markle was there to support her good friend.

The Duchess of Sussex sat in front of Anna Wintour and behind Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian. This was Markle's first trip overseas without her 4-month-old son, Archie, according to People magazine.

Drinking culture and American kids

On America's college campuses, there are epidemics we talk about and those we don't. When sexual assaults or fraternity hazing deaths make headlines, court cases follow and new rules are enacted, but less attention is paid to an underlying issue – binge drinking culture. CBSN Originals explores how drinking to excess is not only considered normal, but cool, and how for many young people "blacking out" is less a rarity than an every weekend occurrence – with grave consequences.
