Following months of rumors that Meghan Markle was secretly feuding with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Page Six reported that the Duchess of Sussex was also at odds with close friend Priyanka Chopra. The two became friends while they were both up-and-coming actresses and Priyanka even attended the royal wedding last May. Fans were surprised when the Quantico actress didn't attended Meghan's glamorous New York City baby shower in February, which is when anonymous sources started spilling the tea about a rift between the two women.
“Priyanka was crushed,” a source told Page Six after Priyanka missed Meghan's shower. “Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes [for skipping Priyanka's wedding to Nick Jonas]. Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her and didn’t respect their friendship.”
Another source has come forward now, though, denying the claims that Meghan and Priyanka are feuding. “All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren’t friends anymore are totally not true,” the source explained to E!. “Priyanka and Meghan are still very close friends, and they talk frequently.”
According to the latest source, Meghan “confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal. Just because Priyanka didn’t go to the shower or Meghan couldn’t come to her wedding(s) doesn’t mean anything about their friendship. They’re still very close friends, and Meghan considers Priyanka one of her closest confidants.”
Perhaps Priyanka will be making an appearance on Meghan's second baby shower at Buckingham Palace? Fingers crossed!
