People online are speculating who Priyanka Chopra’s bridesmaids are going to be when she gets married to Nick Jonas. Last week, Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 25, got engaged in London. The couple had only been openly dating for two months before deciding to tie the knot.
Naturally, one of the potential bridesmaids names that’s popping up is Duchess Meghan Markle. But, as a Duchess, can Markle actually be a bridesmaid? Sort of.
“There is no protocol that dictates whether an adult female member of the British Royal Family can take on the role of a bridesmaid or maid of honor at a non-royal’s wedding,” royal reporter Omid Scobie told Cosmo. “However, it is an unlikely scenario for one simple reason: A female royal would not be expected to walk behind a ‘commoner.'”
Markle and Chopra have been friends since 2017, when they met at an Elle event. Chopra attended the royal wedding in May, so it’s only right that she would also have Markle at her own wedding to the last single “Jonas bro”.
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.?
Whether Markle is actually part of the bridal party remains to be seen.
