Hollywood A-listers were mingling with big-name royalty well before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made waves with their unlikely engagement. Industry favourite Margot Robbie recently opened up about her friendship with the prince – and even touched on whether or not she’ll be at the wedding of the year!
While appearing on The Kyle & Jackie OShow on Monday (Jan. 29), the 27-year-old I, Tonya star revealed the truth behind her royal connection, which isn't necessarily as close as royal watchers would have believed. “We see each other every so often at a party here or there, but [we’re] not close friends.” When Jackie asked the actress if she’d be watching the future couple exchange vows, she answered, “No, definitely not that close!”
Though the Australia native won’t be in the pews for Meghan and Harry’s big day, it’s still a blast taking a trip down memory lane. The two first met while at Suki Waterhouse’s Christmas party, where they were seen posing for a silly photo booth picture along with supermodel Cara Delevingne and actress Sienna Miller.
The London party photo went viral, prompting further investigation into the potential of a budding friendship. The summer after their first encounter, Margot revealed that the two had casually exchanged numbers. “[He was] pretty quick on text,” the star remarked. Despite being a busy bee, Prince Harry clearly takes his friendships seriously.
But royal friends or not, Margot has a lot on her plate in 2018. Since her breakout role in Wolf of Wall Street as the sultry wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Margot has shot to stardom. Her transformation into Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding has garnered a best actress nomination at the Oscars – and just like her character, we’re thinking she’s a tough contender to beat!
