Priyanka Chopra is known for voicing her opinion and for standing up for her friend, Meghan Markle. That's why, when she was questioned about the future royal's wedding, she steered the conversation in a new direction. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, she addressed rumors that she's part of Markle's bridal party, and she also shared her thoughts on Markle's new role.

 

In response to whether or not she's one of Markle's bridesmaids, Chopra coyly responded, "If you'll see me there, you'll know." She went on to praise her pal, and noted that her upcoming marriage means more than just a pretty wedding to drool over. "I don't think anybody else would be able to do it the way she will. She's just right for it," she said of Markle joining the royal family.

"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," the star explained. "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."

 

Another celebrity has expressed his support for Markle's new chapter—her former Suits co-star, Patrick J. Adams. "Meghan has this whole crazy part of her life that's just beginning now," he shared, according to Entertainment Tonight.
