A source just revealed to PEOPLE that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not be travelling to India to attend their long time friend, Priyanka Chopra’s highly anticipated wedding to Nick Jonas.
The Royal couple’s office confirmed last week that since the Duchess of Sussex is expecting her first child spring 2019, the couple has decided to move out of Kensington Palace and into Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage.
Meghan and Harry are super busy with preparing to start ‘a new chapter’ in their life. Meghan was also unable to attend her friend’s , Serena Williams’ wedding to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last November. She is getting ready to share her own big news with the world.
Nick and Priyanka have not yet announced their exact wedding date. The wedding preparations are in order, and the couple is currently in Mumbai, India with Nick’s older brother Joe Jonas and his fiancée, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.
Priyanka and Meghan became friends back to 2016. The two first met at the ELLE Women in Television dinner. “We bonded as actors,” Chopra revealed in September 2017. “We just became friends, like two girls would.”
Although Chopra was one of the celebrities on the VIP guest list for Meghan and Harry’s Wedding, the Quantico star totally understands Meghan’s duties as a member of the Royal Family. Chopra shared that the distance hasn’t affected their friendship.
Priyanka told PEOPLE in July that the bond she shares with Meghan is ‘real’. She said, “You can have work friendships, those are different. But when you have real friendships, like ours, it doesn’t matter what people look at you as or where your world goes, you sort of just, stay friends. And I think that’s what we’re like.”
Chopra attended the Royal wedding in a gorgeous lavender suit with a matching fascinator by British designer Philip Treacy.
