The stars share many interests and values, like women's empowerment and equality, and have been known to grace each other's Instagram accounts before Meghan shut down her social media accounts. While the soon-to-be royal is mum about her bridesmaid and maid of honour, Priyanka teased the possibility. In fact, Markle is prepared to break from royal tradition at her wedding to Prince Harry by giving a speech at their reception.
The 35-year-old "Quantico" star is rumoured to be a bridesmaid for her American friend in her upcoming Royal nuptials, though in a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, she refused to say much about the this suggestion. So, will the actress play any official role in the royal wedding, besides being Markle's unofficial cheerleader? Maybe they cross paths at the wedding directly?
"This is a personal decision, and I have no doubt that her future husband and in-laws will support her in every way possible", he said. In 2015, she spoke at the U.N. Women's conference as an advocate for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. "It's a handsome step in the right direction".
Priyanka also gushed over her "normal and sweet" friend, who she goes on to cal an "icon". "Of women, of feminism, of diversity, of race, of the monarchy versus everyone else. It's part of what makes it so special, that it's just ours", she said.
Markle and Harry are scheduled to Wednesday on May 19.
It's not the first time Meghan has donned the v-stud, with the former actress wearing them during the US Vanity Fair cover photo shoot from October 2017.
"We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception".
