Priyanka Chopra said she did NOT visit Meghan Markle and her newborn, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!
As we reported, a source told The Sun that the Quantico actress and husband Nick Jonas paid a visit to the Duchess of Sussex at her and Prince Harry‘s Frogmore Cottage home at Windsor Castle.
Per the publication, Chopra and Jonas gifted the royal baby with a number of baby gifts from Tiffany & Co.
However, on Friday on Twitter, Priyanka — while referencing The Sun article in question — set the record straight by writing:
“While these are great gift ideas… this story is untrue, and I was actually in town for work. I hope whoever this ‘source’ is starts checking their facts more often.’”
Though Meghan and Priyanka were friends before the Suits alum started dating Harry, rumors of a feud began circulating when Markle did not attend Chopra’s wedding to Jonas in India.
Additionally, Chopra did not attend Markle’s baby shower at the Mark Hotel in NYC.
Although a TMZ source said Priyanka couldn’t make it because she was “stuck working in Los Angeles,” a Page Six insider said Chopra was reportedly “crushed” because of Meghan’s wedding no-show.
Per the source:
“Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes. Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.”
However, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Chopra denied she was “pissed” at Markle, and replied, “Oh my god. No, it’s not true,” in regards to the baby shower drama.
Archie was born on May 6, 2019, and weighed in at 7 lbs., 3 oz.
Following the bundle of joy’s arrival, officials released the following statement:
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex was safely delivered of a son at 0526hrs this morning. The baby weighs 7lbs 3oz. The Duke of Sussex was present for the birth. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news. The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage. Her Royal Highness and the baby are both doing well.”
Speaking to cameras outside Windsor, Harry said to the press:
“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy this morning, a very healthy baby boy. I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. It’s brilliant, I’m absolutely thrilled. We’re really grateful for all the love and support shown to us. It’s been overdue so we have had a little bit of time to think about names so that’s the next bit.
I haven’t been at many births. This is my first birth. It was amazing and absolutely incredible. I’m incredibly proud of my wife. Every father and parent will say your baby is absolutely amazing but this little thing is absolutely to die for. I’m over the moon.”
