Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra, known for being friends with Meghan Markle, once appeared to take sides in the royal feud after she ignored Kate Middleton and Prince William at last year’s Wimbledon event. Express UK.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are known as regular participants of the tennis tournament, where they are usually seen in the Royal Box, and according to reports, the royal couple appeared to be snubbed by Priyanka as they entered the perimeter fence.
According to Express UK, when Kate and William were given a warm welcome as they walked to the seats, royal watchdogs noticed that Priyanka, who was sitting two rows behind the Cambridges, was unresponsive or even clapped.
Not only that, but Priyanka reportedly chose to look away when a special announcement came to welcome Kate and Prince William.
Royal fans were quick to react to the rejection on social media at the time, with one fan reportedly tweeting, “The way Priyanka didn’t even look in their direction is enough for me.”
Another said: “She totally ignored them. I would do the same if my friend was assaulted.”
Meghan Markle, reportedly close friends with Priyanka, is said to have met the Indian superstar in 2016 at an Elle Women in Television dinner.
Priyanka also attended Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal wedding in 2018.
