The glittering showbiz friendship between Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle may be in trouble. Priyanka’s absence at the Duchess of Sussex’s baby shower in New York last month has not escaped comment and reportedly Priyanka was upset that Meghan did not attend her wedding. “Priyanka was crushed,” a source told Page Six, which is why she was a no-show at the baby shower co-hosted by Serena Williams and Amal Clooney. Priyanka Chopra was one of the guests at Meghan Markle’s May wedding to Prince Harry.
It reached out to Priyanka Chopra’s spokesperson who refused to comment but quotes another source as saying, “There are no issues between the two women. They are friends, and anything you’re being told otherwise is inaccurate and untrue.” Evidence in favour of this is the fact that Meghan and Harry were possibly considering Priyanka as a god-parent for their baby. Royal commentator Andrea Boehlke told Express.co.uk: “Priyanka Chopra has been mentioned, as has Misha Nonoo, the fashion designer. Lots of people to choose from.”
Meghan Markle’s absence at Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ grand wedding in Jodhpur in December was put down to her pregnancy.
Priyanka Chopra met Meghan Markle while starring in the now-cancelled US TV show Quantico. Priyanka has also appeared in the Hollywood films Baywatch, A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic? She features in the video for Sucker, the new single released by her husband Nick Jonas’ band Jonas Brothers.
