From ordering a banana cake to making a speech at her own wedding, Meghan Markle is allegedly set to break with tradition at her wedding to Prince Harry in May. So, why not throw in a major Hollywood star as a bridesmaid? After all, Markle does count Priyanka Chopra amongst her closest pals. (Boy, wouldn't that stunner give Pippa Middleton a run for her money!)
Harper's Bazaar Arabia featured the Quantico actress on its February cover, and pressed the star to spill the tea on Markle. For one thing, Chopra would like the world to know that her friend is so much more than just a royal fellow's love interest.
"It’s natural for people to be like, ‘Oh that’s Prince Harry’s girlfriend, but she’s a lot more as well," Chopra said. She went on to share just how perfectly the former Suits actress fits her upcoming role as duchess.
"I don’t think anybody else would be able to do it the way she will," Chopra said. "She’s just right for it. She’s an icon, truly, that girls can look up to, that women can look up to. She’s normal, she’s sweet, she’s nice, she thinks about the world, wants to change it and this was even before any of this happened. So I do think Meghan being a part of the royal family is a big step in the direction of so many things: of women, of feminism, of diversity, of race, of the monarchy versus everyone else. It’s a beautiful step in the right direction.”
That's quite a rousing endorsement! So, will the actress play any official role in the royal wedding, besides being Markle's unofficial cheerleader? When faced with speculation that a bridesmaid role is hers for the taking, Chopra hinted: “If you see me there, you’ll know."
Ugh, what a tease! As if we weren't planning to watch the wedding anyway, this just made us extra curious about what's to come. Well played, Chopra, well played.
