Are Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra Feuding?
Maintaining friendships is hard even for people living normal lives. But when you’re a celebrity with a busy schedule and a new husband, penciling in time to connect with your friends is probably nearly impossible. Especially when said friend has just married a prince, quit her job, moved to a new country, and had a baby.
But that is the situation with actress Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle. The two have had a longstanding friendship, but recently fans can’t help but notice that the women have been seeing each other less and less. Now, this could be due to the fact that they are both busy women and don’t even live on the same continent anymore. But some outlets have reported that the two friends are actually feuding.
Are Markle and Chopra fighting?
Friendships go through rough patches. And having a little distance between them would probably be a normal, natural occurrence for Chopra and Markle, but Chopra has insisted repeatedly that she and her friend are not at odds.
She first addressed the topic earlier this year, when a caller on Watch What Happens Live asked if Chopra didn’t attend Markle’s baby shower because she was angry at her.
“They said you didn’t go to her baby shower because you were pissed at her!” host Andy Cohen said.
“Oh my god,” Chopra answered. “No, it’s not true.”
And recent reports from The Sun have said that Chopra tried to fix her broken friendship with Markle by visiting baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and gifting him with jewels from Tiffany.
Chopra took to Twitter to address the story.
In fact, she told People that distance hasn’t affected their friendship at all.
“I think friendships depend on people individually and how personal your relationship is,” she said in July of last year. “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.”
How did Markle and Chopra become friends?
Chopra and Markle have been friends since 2016. The two met at a Women in Television dinner that was put on by ELLE.
“We bonded as actors,” Chopra once told People of how their friendship began. “We just became friends, like two girls would.”
Since then, the two’s friendship has only grown, and Chopra even attended the Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding.
“Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still,” Chopra wrote on Instagram shortly after her friend’s wedding. “That happened today.”
“You, my friend.. were the epitome of grace, love, and beauty,” she continued. “Every choice made at this wedding by you both will go down in history, not just because it was your wedding but because this incredible wedding stood for change and hope. Both things that the world needs desperately.”
