Pee Cee has Meghan's back Image: Instagram
Suits star Meghan Markle has a successful telly career, a reputation as a humanitarian, a lifestyle brand, and a vision to change the world. But all that the world wants to talk about is her royal Ginger Brit boyfriend Prince Harry. And Meghan's BFF Priyanka Chopra is not here for this. Pee Cee has spoken up about how Meghan is more than just a plus one to the Prince of Wales.
A popular American lifestyle magazine recently did a feature story on Meghan, and could only find cover space to talk about her famous royal boyfriend. "I mean, she's on the cover of Vanity Fair. It would have been nice to write about her and not just her boyfriend. She's an actor, she's an activist, she's a philanthropist. I mean, she does so much more," Priyanka told Entertainment Tonight.
"It's just a little sexist.The only thing I'm saying is that there needs to be a certain sense of equality where a woman is not just a plus one, you know. It's nice to be your own identity, too," added the Quantico star.
But this is not the first time Pee Cee has spoken up about the way Meghan is only projected as Harry's love interest. Earlier this year, she shut down talk show host Wendy Williams for referring to Meghan as Prince Harry's girlfriend. "Meghan Markle, actress...Suits... her achievements, mmm-hmm, just saying..." Priyanka told Wendy.
Meghan's relationship with the Prince of Wales, Harry, who is fifth in line to the British throne, has been extensively publicised in the last few months. The duo met last June, they got pretty serious pretty fast, and the palace has confirmed Harry's relationship with her. According to reports, Harry is planning to propose to the 35-year-old Canadian actor by the end of this year. Priyanka and Meghan have been good friends for a while, and hang out quite often. And she's watching what you say about her BFF.
