Priyanka Chopra stood up for Meghan Markle just like all friends do. The ‘Baywatch’ star has nothing but nice things to say about the Duchess of Sussex. The 36-year-old actor addressed the negativity surrounding her friend since marrying Prince Harry and becoming a member of the royal family.
In an interview, Priyanka opened up about the criticism Meghan faces and said that much of it is due to her biracial heritage. Priyanka said that the media criticism is “really unfortunate,” adding, “But if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her.”
Priyanka continued to praise her friend, explaining that the former ‘Suits’ star has remained grounded even after getting married to the Duke of Sussex.
“The beauty of Meg is that she’s been herself through all of this. A lot of people got to know her after everything, but I knew her before [she started dating Harry] and she’s the same chick. Now she’s got a real platform, she talks about the same things she always did,” the PeeCee added.
Priyanka said that Meghan has always wanted to change a situation to a noticeable degree. The actor added, “We spent hours speaking about the difference that influence and dialogue can make to the world before this whole thing happened, so what you see now is authentically her. She’s always been the girl wanting to move the needle.”
