Priyanka Chopra Jonas Laughs While Jack Whitehall Jokes About Her Friend Meghan Markle
Priyanka Chopra Jonas seemed to find comedian Jack Whitehall’s joke about her friend Meghan Markle on Netflix’s Jonas Brothers Family Roast hilarious.
In the comedy special, brothers and bandmates Joe, 32, Kevin, 34, and Nick Jonas, 29, are ridiculed by their partners and famous faces.
And Priyanka, 39, was seen giggling when the 33-year-old British comedian called her husband Nick “The Meghan Markle of pop” for breaking the “Sucker” band.
He joked, “October 30, 2013… 9/11 of the music industry… The day my heart shattered into a thousand little pieces.
“I’m not going to get up here and play the blame. We could be here all night and say, “Oh Nick said this. Nick did that.” No, it was a mutual decision to split up so Nick could focus on his solo career. No one can be blamed except Nick, whose fault it was for sure.”

Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra have been friends since 2016 after meeting at an ELLE Women in Television dinner
Among the names he gave Nick were “The Brother Breaker” and “The Meghan Markle of pop,” and his other half couldn’t help but laugh at the latter.
It was apparently a reference to the ex-actress ‘Suits’ and her husband Prince Harry stepping down as senior members of the British royal family.
The ‘Quantico’ star first met Meghan at the ELLE Women in Television dinner in January 2016 and they’ve been good friends ever since.
Priyanka previously praised the 40-year-old Duchess – who was known as Meghan Markle before she married Harry – for dealing with her critics so well and insisted that she was exactly the same as she was before joining the royal family.

Priyanka was a guest at her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018, but Meghan was not present at her wedding to Nick Jonas in December and Priyanka was subsequently absent from Meghan’s baby shower, sparking rumors of a feud. However, Priyanka laughed off these claims and claimed it was simply ‘not true’

The 39-year-old actress said: ‘I saw that and it’s a real shame. But if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her…
“Of course it has to do with racism, it’s an obvious reason. But the great thing about Meg is that she experienced all of this herself.
‘A lot of people got to know her after all’ [once she started dating Harry], but I knew her before and she’s the same girl.
“Now that she has a real platform, she talks about the same things she always did.
“We spent hours talking about the difference influence and dialogue can make in the world before all this happened, so what you’re seeing now is authentic hair. She’s always been the girl who wanted to move the needle.’
In July, Priyanka appeared to be ‘ignoring’ Prince William and Kate Middleton when they were clapped into the royal box at Wimbledon.
In a clip released at the time, the Bollywood actress chose to fidget with her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their seats to roaring applause from the crowd for the women’s singles final.
Further photos showed that Priyanka appeared to be looking away from the royal couple as she stood on the Center Court balcony as they mingled with VIPs after the game.
Several royal onlookers suggested it was a punch after the Duchess of Sussex, 39, made comments about Kate during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan claimed her sister-in-law made her cry and “hurt her feelings” during a discussion about flower girl dresses ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry – after it was previously suggested it was the other way around.
She also claimed that there had been “conversations” with a member of the royal family about the skin color of Meghan and Harry’s son Archie.
It’s possible that Priyanka didn’t see the Cambridges enter the Royal Box, or she wasn’t aware of the etiquette for applauding, but several royal fans suggested it was deliberate withholding.
