Priyanka Chopra ‘declined Meghan Markle’s baby shower invite’ because she was ‘crushed’ the Duchess skipped her wedding

The pair are said to no longer be close after Priyanka skipped Meghan's baby shower – months after the Duchess declined her pal's wedding invite.

Priyanka, 36, was a guest at Meghan and Prince Harry’s star-studded wedding, held last May.

But it’s been a busy year for the former Miss World who tied the knot herself, marrying Nick Jonas in December.

One notable absence from the guest list was her supposed chum, the Duchess of Sussex.

Page Six quoted a source close to Priyanka, who said she was “crushed” Meghan was a no-show.

It’s been said Meghan’s pregnancy – with the Duchess due to give birth in April – was the reason for not turning up, but it seems to have hit a nerve with Priyanka.

Still a sore point for the Bollywood star, her absence from Meghan's lavish five-day baby shower in New York didn’t go unnoticed.

The 37-year-old’s other famous friends, including Serena Williams and Amal Clooney  helped co-host the expensive event.

Sources claimed Priyanka was “bogged down” in LA over a book she’s writing, but rumours are swirling the real reason is she feels snubbed by Meghan.

The website quoted a source close to Priyanka, who said: “Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes.

“Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following.

“She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is.

“She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.”

It’s a far cry from the tight bond the women shared, with Meghan and Priyanka previously sharing snaps of them out on the town and attending shows together.

But while a spokesperson for Priyanka declined to comment, Page Six quoted a source close to her who seemed to rubbish the rumours.

They said: “There are no issues between the two women.

“They are friends, and anything you’re being told otherwise is inaccurate and untrue.”

In any case, Meghan’s baby shower was said to have shown the ‘real’ Meghan –  flashy and power hungry.

And it’s been claimed the Duchess will be lonely in her ‘lavish’ palace after the baby arrives.

But the birth is set to boost the UK economy by £1.25 billion as people copy Meghan’s style.
