Priyanka, Nick recreate Prince Harry, Meghan’s engagement photo

Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra and her American singer fiance Nick Jonas seem quite inspired by her friend and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, an Indian publication reports. At their recent outing together to the New York Fashion Week, the newly engaged couple recreated the same pose and picture from the Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry.

The picture was clicked by famous photographer Alexi Lubomirski. He is also the photographer behind the royal engagement photos. In the photo, Chopra is seen sitting on the floor while Jonas sits on a blue loveseat. She is leaning on his knees while they hold hands and smile for the camera. The Duke and Duchess also struck the same pose, except their faces were closer together.

Markle and Chopra are also great friends. Chopra was one of the few of her friends invited to the royal wedding on May 19. They were often spotted on theatre dates and vacations by the pool before her wedding. They first met in January 2016 at Elle’s 6th Annual Women in TV Celebration. “We bonded as actors. We just became friends, like two girls would,” Chopra told People magazine in 2017.

The ‘Quantico’ star and Jonas arrived together for fashion designer Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary show at the fashion week on Friday. It was also attended by other Hollywood celebrities like Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain.
