Are Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra friends?

Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly still friends, according to a source.

Rumors that the two were involved in a bitter fight emerged when a caller asked Chopra on the Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen if she was upset that Markle skipped her wedding to Nick Jonas.

Cohen interjected before Chopra got to answer the question and said: “they say you didn’t go to her baby shower because you were pissed at her.” 

Chopra denounced being upset, saying: “Oh my God. No, it’s not true.” 

The actress reportedly did not attend the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s celebration due to meetings about a book she was writing.

A source to Page Six fueled the rumors that the two were angry at each other, saying: “Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes. Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. 

Adding: “She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.”

However, after reports surfaced that the two were mad at each other, an insider insisted to E! News that all rumors were false, saying: “All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren't friends anymore are totally not true. Priyanka and Meghan are still very close friends and they talk frequently."

They added: "Meghan confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal."

What did Priyanka say about Meghan Markle?

When Markle was chosen as one of Time's Most Influential People of 2018, Chopra penned a piece on her friend, writing all about her special qualities.

Chopra wrote: “More than anything else, Meghan is an important influencer in a world that needs strong public figures to respect and look up to.

“People the world can be inspired by. Meghan, standing shoulder to shoulder with [Prince] Harry, will be a princess for the people.”

Did Meghan Markle have her title stripped?

Markle and Prince Harry confirmed that they were no longer going to return to the palace as working royals.

Buckingham Palace today confirmed the news of Markle and Harry's departure from the royal fold in a statement this morning.

The Palace also confirmed Harry has been stripped of his military titles.

"The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family," they wrote.

"While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family," the royal announcement concluded.

The news comes after Markle announced on February 14 that she was expecting a second child with Harry.

Shortly after news from the Palace broke, the couple released their own statement.

"As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.

"We can all live a life of service. Service is universal," they added.
