Priyanka Chopra shuts down sexist question about bestie Meghan Markle
Objectification of women? Not on Priyanka's watch
Priyanka Chopra is hoping for an invite to Meghan Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry – if they do decide to get married, that is.
Earlier this week, the Baywatch star appeared on the Wendy Williams Show to discuss her latest film, when she was quizzed about her friendship with Markle and the Suits actress’ whirlwind romance with the 32-year-old royal. ‘Here’s the big deal,’ host Williams announced. ‘You’re friends with Meghan Markle…’ ‘Right,’ Chopra replied, nervously. ‘Prince Harry’s girlfriend!’ Williams declared excitedly to cheers and applause from the audience. The Bollywood actress was quick to point out that the 35-year-old star is famous in her own right, interjecting: ‘Also Meghan Markle… [She has her own] achievements… Just saying!’
When asked if she could foresee wedding bells in Markle’s future, she continued: ‘I hope so! She seems happy. ‘I think they look great together,’ she added. The 34-year-old former model was also quick to laugh off suggestions that she would be asked to be a bridesmaid, noting: ‘High profile relationships are so stressful anyway. As a friend I wouldn’t like to add on that at all.’ Williams couldn’t resist asking whether Chopra had chatted with Markle about the strains of her publicised relationship, to which she added: ‘We talk about my stress! ‘She [Markle] doesn’t seem to have any right now!’ she joked.
Meanwhile, Markle attended Pippa Middleton’s lavish reception with Harry over the weekend at the Middleton’s home in Bucklebury, but skipped the ceremony due to royal protocol. It’s reportedly against royal etiquette for members of the royal family to upstage proceedings at a non-royal event. It was recently claimed that Harry has received the Queen’s permission to propose to Markle, so perhaps Chopra better get hat shopping, pronto!
