Priyanka Chopra Says She And Meghan Markle Text 'A Lot'

The Hollywood BFFs are still as tight as ever.

What you need to know
  • Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra have been tight for years
  • The actors met three years ago and formed an instant bond
  • It's possible Priyanka will be a bridesmaid at Meghan's upcoming wedding to Prince Harry

Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle have been mates for close to three years and that friendship shows no sign of waning. Yes, Meghan might be about to officially enter the royal family (she will marry Prince Harry on May 19 all going to plan) but she's not completely abandoning her former life.

During an appearance on the Rachel Ray Show on Wednesday May 2, Priyanka revealed that she and Meghan are regular text buddies. Yes, it turns out they chat via text and often. Who knew?

"She still texts a lot, which is great," Priyanka told Rachel. And indeed it is. Rachel seemed a little shocked by this ... Hadn't the royal family confiscated Meghan's mobile phone some months back?

Priyanka shut that rumour down and fast. In fact, she pretty much scoffed at the idea. “I think she has a phone. She really is a (normal girl)," she said.

Yes. Normal. Only a Hollywood star. And soon to marry a prince. But otherwise 100 per cent normal ... anyway back to that chat and the royal nuptials. Priyanka did not reveal whether she would be at the wedding although we'd happily put money on it. There's been plenty of talk that she will be a part of the wedding party too, but for that we'll just have to wait and see. What we can say with utmost confidence is that the event will be full of love and genuine affection.

You see, Priyanka's sweet fondness for her friend is abundantly clear. She recently wrote a tribute piece for Time Magazine in which she referred to her as being 100 per cent real. Priyanka also said that her friend had her 'heart and mind in the right place' and that she would be a 'Princess for the people'. Priyanka even declared that Meghan had made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again. And on that she may very well be right. Meghan and Prince Harry's love story does have all the hallmarks of a fairy-tale union and the world needs more of those.

We couldn't be more delighted for the pair and it's patently obvious Priyanka feels the same way.

"I’m so happy for everything that’s happened to her, because I really feel like she’s one of those female icons that I feel could be a strong idol for girls around the world, because she really cares about the world. Really cares."
