Meghan Markle’s Close Friend Priyanka Chopra Says She’s “Amazing” After Marrying Prince Harry

Meghan Markle Priyanka ChopraFans of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may want to consider a few things before showering the couple with gifts to commemorate their upcoming wedding in May. (

A castle wedding with a fairy tale beginning. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are off to a strong start in their marriage, at least according to a source very close to the pair—her friend, Priyanka Chopra.

“She’s doing amazing,” Chopra, 35, told People this week about the Duchess of Sussex. “It’s so nice to see.”

The two became friends after meeting at a dinner in 2016. “We bonded as actors,” Chopra mused. “We just became friends, like two girls would.” Distance, as of late, has very little impact on their continual communication and bond.

“I think friendships depend on people individually and how personal your relationship is,” Chopra added to the magazine. “You can have work friendships, those are different. But when you have real friendships, like ours, it doesn’t matter what people look at you as or where your world goes, you sort of just, stay friends. And I think that’s what we’re like.”

Indeed, Chopra attended Markle’s Windsor wedding on May 19, alongside several other close pals like stylist Jessica Mulroney, whose children were in the junior bridal party. Lately, Markle’s style has been front and center as she steps out for public engagements with the royal family.

“I’ve always thought she was a super stylish girl,” Chopra concluded to People. “She’s someone that I’ve always looked up to for her style. Always, before she got married. And I just think she’s so well turned out always and she’s so chic in what she wears.”
