Priyanka Chopra’s team made a rare move today: denying a tabloid story written about her and Meghan Markle. Chopra’s spokesperson responded to The Sun‘s report that Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas visited her friend Meghan and met the duchess’s baby Archie in Windsor during Chopra’s trip to England. That did not happen, the spokesperson told The Daily Mail.
“The story is completely false. Priyanka has not seen Meghan and has no plans to see Meghan during this trip. She is in town for professional commitments,” the spokesperson said.
The Sun‘s royal correspondent Emily Andrews initially reported that Chopra and Jonas went to Windsor last weekend and brought gifts from Tiffany & Co. for Archie.
A “pal” told Andrews that “they thought baby Archie was just adorable and Meg is loving her new life. She looked fantastic and has taken to life as a mum swimmingly.”
This is not the first time someone close to Chopra has denied a tabloid report about her and Meghan. Back in February, Page Six reported that the two’s friendship was about over because Meghan didn’t come to Chopra’s wedding.
A source close to Chopra shot down the notion that the two women were feuding in Page Six’s initial report. “There are no issues between the two women,” the source said. “They are friends, and anything you’re being told otherwise is inaccurate and untrue.”
E! reported a month later that Chopra and Meghan truly are very, very close in private. “All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren’t friends anymore are totally not true,” a source told the outlet. “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.”
While Archie hasn’t met Chopra or Jonas yet, he is reported to have met Meghan’s friend Serena Williams. He has also met the Queen, Prince Charles, Kate Middleton, Prince William, and more, so he’s had very glamorous company.
