Priyanka Chopra says Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “so normal and sweet”
The best friend verdict
Priyanka Chopra, good friend of Meghan Markle, was naturally asked by E!News about the couple. “They’re so happy and so in love, and it’s so normal and sweet and yet not normal at all,” Chopra said. “So I’m super happy for her, I really am.”
Chopra isn’t presently helping Markle plan her wedding. “No, I don’t know that until I know that,” she said. “She’s a friend, and I will always support her in whatever she needs.”
And Chopra hasn’t met Prince Harry either. “I mean I’ve spoken to him and Meg a couple times, but I haven’t been around in London like at all.”
The idea of picking a wedding gift for the couple is daunting though, she admitted. “I know, I’ve been thinking about that. It’s a little bit of a problem. But from what I’ve always known of Meghan, she’s not someone who’s very materialistic. She really isn’t. She’s like if you give her a book, she’ll be happy. Like, as long as it’s thoughtful. So I don’t think it’ll be really hard ‘cause she’s never been the kind of girl who’s like ‘Oh, I want the newest bag,’ or ‘I want…’ She’s just a very girl’s girl. She’s very down-to-earth, so I don’t think it’ll be really hard.”
We don’t know yet whether Chopra will be invited to Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry (or what other celebs will be). But Chopra had nothing but glowing things to say about what Markle adds to the royal family. “Meghan is just super down-to-earth and really chill, and she always has been that, and she’s still like that so that’s what I love about her, and that’s why she’s such a—I think she’ll be really an icon for young girls around the world.”
