This Is What Meghan Markle Thinks of Her Friend Priyanka Chopra’s Engagement To Nick Jonas
After news broke that Priyanka Chopra was engaged to Nick Jonas, many wondered what her good friend Meghan Markle thought about it. Well, we have the answer since the duchess has reportedly reacted to the engagement.
Chopra and Markle met a few years back at the annual Women in Television dinner hosted by Elle. “We bonded as actors,” Chopra told People of their friendship. “We just became friends, like two girls would.”
The two became very close and when Markle married Prince Harry last May, Chopra was a guest at their royal wedding.
Before her pal even got engaged to the royal, Chopra was super supportive of their relationship. She told Wendy Williams that she hoped they would get married because she really wanted Markle to have a fairy-tale ending saying, “I hope so. She seems happy. I think they look great together.”
So what does Markle think about Chopra’s big news? Well, the duchess approves!
Sources told E! News that Markle is “very excited” for the couple. “Everyone is very happy and they are definitely a great match,” the insider shared on Markle’s behalf.
Now, the only question is will Markle attend Chopra and Jonas’ nuptials and if so will Prince Harry be by her side?
We’re guessing she will and Harry would likely accompany her unless their busy schedules conflict with the date Chopra and her fiancé choose. But the royal couple will almost certainly get an invite and do their best to make it.
Jonas and Chopra first sparked dating rumors when they showed up at the 2017 Met Gala side by side. However, they pulled the old “friends” card when asked about attending the affair together. Jonas explained that since they were both wearing Ralph Lauren and would be taking photos with one another they just decided to go together.
Chopra echoed that when she visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! shortly after the event, telling the late night host, “We were on the same table and we already know each other. So, he was like ‘Hey, you wanna go together?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, let’s go together.’”
A year later, those rumors were reignited when a fan shot video of the pair at a Los Angeles Dodgers game. They were also spotted at a concert with one another days before that and photographed getting cozy while aboard a friend’s yacht.
In June 2018, the two started flirting in the comments section of each other’s Instagram accounts. And a few weeks later, she attended his cousin’s wedding with him and met his family. He and the actress then flew to India so Jonas could meet her mother, who at the time said, “We just went out for dinner where Nick was present. But it was a large group. There were 10-odd people, so I didn’t get the time to know him that well. I’ve met him for the first time, so it’s too early to form an opinion.”
Hopefully, she has a favorable opinion of him now and gave her stamp of approval like the duchess did.
