Someone play some Aretha Franklin because we are feeling R-E-S-P-E-C-T for actress Priyanka Chopra!
Priyanka and Meghan Markle — who met two years ago at a party — are particularly close friends. And now, Priyanka is hoping Meghan and her boyfriend, Prince Harry, get married!
Priyanka is in the midst of promoting the new Baywatch flick, but curiosity steered towards finding out more about England's potential new Princess. Dropping by the Wendy Williams Show, the host questioned her about "Prince Harry‘s girlfriend."

Proving to be the ultimate BFF, Priyanka responded, "Also, Meghan Markle, actress, Suits, her achievements. Just saying."
Wendy didn't let her deter, pressing for any details about a future engagement. Not giving too much away, the star confessed, "I hope so. She seems happy. I think they look great together."

If there is a royal wedding, Priyanka doesn't think she'd be in the bridal party but she is eyeing an invite. "Once I get the invite, if I’m even invited," she joked. An invite (maybe designed by Meghan's potential sister-in-law) could drop sooner that Priyanka thinks.
In yet another sign that a royal engagement is only a hop, skip and a jump away, Meghan and Harry attended Pippa Middleton's wedding reception earlier this week.

Life & Style suggested that Pippa’s strict "no ring, no bring!" approach to the guest list would likely prevent the actress from attending the wedding, but an exception or slight bending of the rules was allowed for Meghan.
According to reports, doting boyfriend Prince Harry dashed back to London between the ceremony and reception to pick up his American partner, who looked stunning in a chic black gown a white jacket.
"Right now Harry and Meghan are leaning towards not wanting to attract extra attention, especially on a day that's not about them. It takes the pressure off," an insider explained to E! News about their low-key approach to the day.
And if you believe the murmurs coming out of London, then Prince Harry has already received the Queen's approval to marry as required by law. As the royal is fifth in line to the British throne, the law dictates he must get his grandmother's seal of approval before he asks for the actress' hand in marriage.

And according to Star magazine, forward-thinking Harry has already done just that. "The way it’s going, the engagement will probably happen this year. Harry has got approval from the Queen to propose to Meghan, he’s already had those conversations with Her Majesty. An engagement is imminent!"

Many royal fans thought Harry and Meghan would announce their royal engagement on Aug. 4, 2017. "Why then? It’s Ms. Markle’s 36th birthday, a date she shares with the late Queen Mother," the Daily Mail recently reported.
