In a recent interview with Elle UK, actress Priyanka Chopra opened up about her close friendship with Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and how the international success the royal has found does not surprise her.

"Megs... she was always meant for big things," the former "Quantico" actress said. "To be a change and be an important voice in doing that. It's amazing that she found that calling and has the platform to be able to do it."

Continuing, she said, "I'm a big believer in taking charge of your life, but there's got to be something bigger that puts us into the circumstances that we are put in. Destiny has a weird way of helping you find your calling."

The pair met back in 2016 when they both attended the Elle Women in Television dinner. "We bonded as actors," Chopra told People in 2017 of their meeting. "We just became friends, like two girls would."

Before Meghan's transition to royalty, the duo had gone to various events together, once attending a performance of "Hamilton." A picture from that night was shared on the Duchess' now-defunct Instagram page, which Priyanka created for her.

However, being in the public eye can come with downsides as Chopra has been faced with multiple reports of feuds between the two. Fortunately, it seems as though any outside pressure has not changed the private friendship the two women share.

"The beauty of Meg is that she's been herself through all of this," Chopra told The Sunday Times last month. "A lot of people got to know her after everything, but I knew her before [she started dating Prince Harry] and she's the same chick. Now she's got a real platform, she talks about the same things she always did."
