Most royal watchers first met Priyanka at Meghan Markle’s star-studded wedding in May 2018. The two actresses have been friends for several years, and while Priyanka snagged a front row seat at the wedding, their relationship status appears to be somewhat complicated now.
Shortly after Meghan and Harry got married, Priyanka started dating American singer/ songwriter/ and actor, Nick Jonas. The pair very quickly got engaged and by the end of 2018, the were married. Fans had anticipated seeing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at the Chopra-Jonas wedding, but to everyone’s surprise, they did not attend.
Then again, in February 2019, the Meghan Markle had a private baby shower in NYC with only her closest gal pals. Priyanka was nowhere to be seen.
The day after the swanky baby shower, Page Six ran a story suggesting that Priyanka purposely skipped out on the Duchess’ wedding because of she hadn’t made the trip to her wedding[s] in India.
A Page Six source claimed, “Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes. Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.” But on March 22nd, Priyanka put those rumors to rest real quick.
Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, wanted to get some clarity on the rumor so he asked the question that everyone was begging to know. Andy simply stated the rumor, “They said you didn’t go to her baby shower because you were pissed at her.” Priyanka replied with a smile, “No, it’s not true.”
Since Priyanka,s reply, rumors of their friend’s drama have died down. Another source close to Priyanka says, “There are no issues between the two women. They are friends, and anything you’re being told otherwise is inaccurate and untrue.”
This makes us very happy because Priyanka and Meghan’s friendship was always so special! We’re sure that logistics got in the way of their attendance more than anything.
