Markle’s close friend, actress Priyanka Chopra, reportedly “looked the other way” when Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived at Wimbledon.
Meghan Markle’s close friend, the Indian actress, singer, and producer Priyanka Chopra, was reportedly not clapping as Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived at Wimbledon last weekend.
The star, married to American pop star Nick Jonas, was captured on camera adjusting her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge entered the royal box to a round of applause, according to a report in The Sun.
Many royal fans quickly claimed that Chopra was “ignoring”after comments Meghan made about her struggles in the royal family.
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said that Kate made her cry over her bridesmaid dresses for hermember around the color of Meghan’s unborn child’s skin.
It is plausible that Chopra didn’t see the royal couple entering alongside many other attendees pictured not clapping. Fans quickly commented on the moment and claimed it was a snub.
One said: “The way Priyanka did not even look in their direction is enough for me.
Another added: “She ignored them. I would do the same if my friend was mistreated”, while a third wrote: “I would ignore them as well.”
The footage was captured as the stars attended the Wimbledon Women’s Final between Australia’s new champ, Ash Barty, and Karolina Pliskova of thelast weekend.
Chopra, accompanied by a friend, was spotted a few rows behind Meghan’s sister-in-law Kate and brother-in-law, Prince William.

Priyanka was a guest at Meghan and Prince Harry’s star-studded wedding in May 2018.
When Meghan was chosen as one of Time’s Mostof 2018, Chopra wrote a piece on her friend, writing all about her unique qualities.
In the article, Chopra predicted that Meghan “will be a princess for the people” and called her “a relatablewith her heart and mind in the right place”.
A source told E! News: “Meghan confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal.”
When Oprah Winfrey previously asked Meghan if she made Kate cry over the dress incident, Meghan said: “The reverse happened. A fewbefore the wedding, she was upset about something about… the flower girl’s dresses, which made me cry. And it .
“There wasn’t a confrontation, and Iit’s fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologized, and I have forgiven her. What was hard to get over was being blamed for something I didn’t do, which happened to me.
“I’m not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to disparage her.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were left deeply saddened after the interview, in whichsaid Wills was “trapped” in the royal family.
