Not only did Priyanka Chopra make a stylish appearance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding on May 19, but she also took to Instagram to gush about her bestie’s big day. "Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still … that happened today,” she wrote. “You my friend were the epitome of grace, love and beauty."
But sadly, the duchess won’t be able to do the same for her close friend when she marries Nick Jonas on Sunday (Dec. 2) in Jodhpur, India.
“There are no plans” for the expecting couple to make the trip, according to sources who spoke to Harper’s Bazaar . “The couple was invited to all of the celebrations in India but given how much travel would be involved for Meghan, who’s now five months pregnant, they decided against it.”
The Duchess of Sussex is surely disappointed to miss Priyanka’s big day, for which preparations are well underway! Priyanka and the “Jealous” singer are set to wed at heritage hotel Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace. Although the guestlist is a big secret, Nick’s brother, Joe Jonas, and his wife, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, are already there and deep in the celebrations. In the week leading up to their nuptials, the couple and their families and friends have been enjoying each other’s company in Priyanka’s home country.

Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still...that happened today. You my friend were the epitome of grace, love, and beauty. Every choice made at this wedding by you both will go down in history, not just because it was your wedding, but because this incredible wedding stood for change and hope...both things that the world needs desperately. Thank you for being the perfect picture of all things good. Seeing your union and love blessed in front of my eyes made me so happy...and tear up! I wish you both love happiness and togetherness always.
Priyanka and Meghan’s friendship dates back to the former Suits star’s pre-Harry days, having first met at ELLE’s Women in Television dinner a few years ago and remained close ever since. Despite being oceans apart, their bond shows every time Priyanka opens up about her love for the duchess. “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,” Priyanka told the Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in January. And they still find time to catch up! Back in July, the Sussexes reportedly hosted the Quantico star and her fiancé at their Cotswolds country home.
