In a recent appearance on PeopleNow, Chopra said of her friend and Prince Harry, “It’s not just going to be life-changing for the two of them. It’s life-changing for the world, that needs to see strong women as icons.
“Meghan has the potential to be that,” she continued. “She’s just a really real girl.”
In the same interview, Chopra confirmed she would not be a bridesmaid at the wedding. Customarily, royals steer away from having sizeable bridal parties, instead including younger relatives and the children of friends’ as flower girls and page boys.
It is believed Prince William will be Prince Harry’s best man, and many believe Markle’s long time best friend, Lindsay Roth, will serve as Maid of Honour. The pair have been close friends for over a decade, and Markle was Roth’s Maid of Honour a few years ago.
