Meghan Markle bumped into Chopra in Women in Television event back in 2016, organized by Elle US and now after some life-altering years, their friendship has remained intact as expressed by Chopra in a recent interview on Elle UK.
Priyanka has always defended her royal friend and extended her support for she always knew her friend was meant to do what she’s doing now. “Megs…she was always meant for big things,” Chopra said. “To be a change and be an important voice in doing that. It’s amazing that she found that calling and has the platform to be able to do it,” Priyanka further added.
“By the time this comes out, she will have a baby — it’s so amazing how lives change. I’m a big believer in taking charge of your life, but there’s got to be something bigger that puts us into the circumstances that we are put in,” Priyanka said in the interview which was conducted before Meghan Markle gave birth to baby Sussex, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. “Destiny has a weird way of helping you to find your calling,” Priyanka further said.
The actress also said that she and husband Nick Jonas may find an abode in London, “I will never forget how the Millennium Dome [now The O2] looked that night, and how I felt after I won. Nick and I want to get a place in London at some point. Whenever I go there, I feel connected to the city.” She reminisced about her Miss Universe event that took place in London years ago.
Priyanka has always stood up for Duchess of Sussex every time critics censured her. In an interview in the U.K’s Sunday Times Priyanka said, “I’ve seen that, and it’s really unfortunate.”
“But if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her. Of course, it has to do with racism, it’s an obvious reason,” Chopra defiantly admitted.
Meghan had talked about Priyanka with Press Trust of India back in 2016. “Priyanka is unbelievable,” Meghan said. “She has become a really good friend. ELLE Magazine in the U.S. hosted a dinner celebrating Women in TV, and we met that night — turns out that she really likes Suits,” Markle told about her friendship with Chopra.
For now, the friendship between these two powerful ladies is intact amidst all the feud rumors and while they are admired by the world, they are no doubt each other’s biggest admirers.
