Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Really Friends With Adele?

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been an official member of the royal family for over a year now. But she is still working hard to make her mark in a unique way.

Still, Duchess Meghan isn’t like any other royal, especially in that she had a thriving career before she married Prince Harry. She enjoyed all the perks of being famous, including swag, an elite lifestyle, and, of course, a roster of celebrity friends.

Recently, some reports claim that the duchess is still making celeb friends, even as a royal. Read on to learn about what celebrities Markle is already close with, what famed singer she is reportedly getting chummy with, and why this singer is such a big deal.

When Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in May 2018, their wedding was truly a star-studded affair. A few of the celebrity guests included tennis star Serena Williams, her co-stars from Suits, and Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.

Duchess Meghan is reportedly very close with Williams, and the two have continued to spend time together even though they don’t live anywhere close to each other these days. Markle and Chopra were also very close in years past, although it is not known to what extent they have kept in contact in recent months.

In addition to Markle’s mainstay celeb buddies, she has reportedly gotten close to George Clooney (after he defended her to the press) and his wife Amal Clooney, as well as Elton John and his partner David Furnish. All in all, although Duchess Meghan might not have as much time to spend with her friends these days, she’s certainly not suffering when it comes to rubbing elbows with famous people.

Is Meghan Markle friends with Adele?

Recently, a photo emerged on social media that seemed to show Markle and Prince Harry hanging out with British singer Adele while they were all at the Hubb Community Kitchen in London. The photo was taken sometime last year and has since been removed, so it is no longer available for viewing. But fans are still excited nonetheless.

It makes sense that both Markle and Adele should have at least crossed paths with each other. After all, they are both staunch supporters of the charity kitchen and the associated community efforts involved.

Still, it is unclear as to whether or not Markle and Adele have spent time together since the photo was taken or if they have maintained communication in any way. Certainly, both women have been very busy, with Adele focusing on new music since her painful breakup earlier this year and Markle taking a bit of a holiday break in order to spend time with family. 

Adele is a global superstar

Adele rose to fame in 2011 with the release of her songs “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep.” She quickly became well-known for her signature soaring voice and songs that centered on deep emotional distress.

She has won multiple awards in the past few years and been named Artist of the Year by Billboard an incredible three times. 

Over the past couple of years, Adele has stayed mostly out of the spotlight, although multiple outlets have reported that she is due to release her brand-new album any day now. She has a large, impassioned fanbase that will certainly be waiting for her return to center stage, regardless.

In the meantime, it seems as though the singer has been occupying herself by working with charities and possibly befriending the royal family.
