Last month, rumors popped up that longtime friends Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra were in a "feud." According to Page Six, their relationship was "on the rocks" because the pregnant Duchess of Sussex skipped Chopra's wedding to Nick Jonas in India. So, in return, Chopra reportedly opted out of Markle's New York City baby shower. We called B.S. on that story and still stand by our opinion.
Now, a new source is telling E! News the two women are 100 percent fine. "All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren't friends anymore are totally not true," the source says. "Priyanka and Meghan are still very close friends and they talk frequently. 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 that Meghan couldn't come to her wedding(s), doesn't mean anything about their friendship," the source continues. "They're still very close friends and Meghan considers Priyanka one of her closest confidants."
Considering the way Chopra has talked about Markle in the past, this makes makes sense. "This ever-smiling, strong free spirit found her prince, fell in love and in turn made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again," Chopra wrote about the now-duchess for Time's 100 Most Influential People issue in April 2018. "But more than anything else, Meghan is an important influencer in a world that needs strong public figures to respect and look up to." Last summer, Chopra said Markle was doing "amazing" in her new royal life, and it was rumored she and Nick Jonas stayed with the Sussexes at their Cotswolds country home.
And there you have it, folks: nothing to see here except two very busy women who, unfortunately, couldn't make their schedules line up. That's not a feud. That's adulthood—mundane, normal adulthood.
