Priyanka Chopra on Meghan Markle’s Vanity Fair cover story: It would have been nice to write about her, not just Prince Harry

Priyanka Chopra calls out Vanity Fair magazine for being sexists says Meghan Markle is much more than just being Prince Harry’s girlfriend.

Meghan Markle is best known for her kickass character Rachel Zane from the hit TV show Suits. The actress also happens to be dating Prince Harry and the media has gone into a frenzy ever since this predicament came to light. 

The couple started dating in July 2016 and have been stronger than ever with numerous engagement rumours being rife. 

Meghan recently featured on Vanity Fair’s cover story but sadly, it was only her quote about her relationship with Prince Harry which made headlines. 

Our global girl Priyanka Chopra who has been good friends with Meghan had something to say about her friend being featured on the magazine cover. 

Talking to an international daily, Priyanka said, “I don’t [know] if I will get into trouble for this, but I have an opinion. I mean, she’s on the

cover of Vanity Fair. It would have been nice to write about her not just her boyfriend. I’m just saying. I mean, she’s an actor, she’s an activist, she’s a philanthropist. I mean, she does so much more. It’s just a little sexist. Look, I’m a feminist and I love boys, okay… The only thing I’m saying is that there needs to be a certain sense of equality where a woman is not just a plus one, you know. It’s nice to be your own identity too.”

Well, we agree with PeeCee here. 

On the work front, Priyanka recently revealed that she is close to signing to Bollywood movies, however, she did not divulge

much details on the same.

She wouldn't be on Vogue cover without Harry , she was not even famous in Hollywood . And Meghan could have declined to comment

PC just indirectly showing off that she gets all mag covers on her own identity but Megan is only getting them because she's Prince Harry's GF

Like how PC is only famous for being someone's GF. :)

I love this pic of Priyanka

Yeah i agree with priyanka regarding this. A girl should be never a plus one and should have her own identity. I love girls but would not like to be just someone's boyfriend. Would like to have my own identity so similarly i presume it would be for the fairer sex. All my support to Pee Cee since she pointed it out.

Deepika fans are jealous that she mentioned Katrina and not Deepika. LOL.

Priyanka sends out such cute messages. Love!

PC, HOW ABOUT STANDING UP FOR B TOWN LADIES WHO ARE ACTUALLY FIGHTING FOR EQUAL RIGHTS SUCH AS KANGANA INSTEAD OF PUTTING THEM DOWN!

the headline Vanity Fair used was cringeworthy. I actually agree with Priyanka!

No one knew who Meghan is until she started dating Harry. She is famous only because of her boyfriend so is it really a surprise?

Heard about SUITS? No? You probably know nothing about Hollywood. So yeah, YOU might not know about her but A LOT of people do.

Definitely yes. Most of the people knew who she is and just because you don't know doesn't mean she was not known. Moreover, if it was all about her boyfriend then she should never have been given the cover space. There is a need to respect her individuality which is clearly being ignored by the magazine.

Lets not argue with people who say NOBODY KNEW HER UNTILL SHE STARTED DATING PRINCE HARRY :D
Lol, come on people she is Mike Ross's girlfriend in suits and work with the great harvey specter :D

grapes are sour just coz she didnt get harry! and probably trying to get invited to the wedding !

PC and Meghan simply hit it off long time when M visited her during season 1 of Q. They like each other because they both take pride in having half a brain. But I know that is too much for you dweebs to digest. They like each other end of story. PC just saying ok click for Harry angle BUT explore Meghan's achievements too why dont ya. BIIIIIIG WHOOOOP.

Gossip Girls!

Why she is advocating Meghan? because she knows she can catch firangi media attention. However, when taking side of Kangana, she does not want to advocate. What a opportunist!

Well said Priyanka! I like how she calls for fail deal of respect!

Priyanka isn't stupid! She wouldn't say something that Meg doesn't agree with

LMAO Meghan probably cried about the "WILD ABOUT HARRY" headline when her and Priyanka met in Toronto recently

pretty sure Priyanka and Meghan met in Toronto last week

Hmm.. if I were her I would moving forward keep these opinions to herself. If Megan doesn't want to be talked about in the same breath as Prince Harry then she would certainly not give quotes about it. She flat out gave some spicy quotes to the Vanity fair reporter. Megan knew what she was doing, Priyanka doesn't need to be her bodyguard puppy dog. Priyanka, focus on your own career and stop talking about your friends it's not going to help you in the long run. Now Megan knows that Priyanka will literally comment on everything related to her and give her opinion to the public - I'm sorry but I wouldn't want a friend like that.

rekharai I am really glad I don't have a friend like you, judging people like an up-tight self-righteous sorority sister it's tru f real

Priyanka and Meghan met in Toronto AFTER Priyanka said this. I don't think Meghan has an issue with Priyanka standing up for her.

Megan Merkle who?

Markle's being interviewed mainly bcos of Prince Harry . Very sorry to say this but her ''We are in love '' sort of comment sounds attention seeking from the usually private royal family & puts the focus more on the relationship for a relatively unknown actress. It's like an action replay of Prince Andrew & Koo Stark.

I picked on that comment too and had the same opinion.

Dialogue's straight out of a Hindi movie .

Just read it on news-Meghan is already getting flak for talking about it from Dianas ex -bodyguard.

Indirectly she wants to get invited to her wedding, that's what we Indians usually do. Who would invite her to the palace otherwise?

Priyanka is a part of Meghan's inner circle. obviously she's invited. Meghan has wrote multiple blogs about Priyanka.

She uses every gossip to stay in the news! YAWN!

I met Priyanka and Meghan at a Broadway play in NYC last year. They're sweet!

Meghan talked about her individuality in the interview then VF made a cringe-worthy headline about Harry on her cover. she's probably annoyed too.

she has a point!

begging for an invitation, nothing else

she already has one (if the wedding happens)

well said

Then PeeCee and all who agree with her did not read the article. Sheeesh!

takes guts to call out Vanity Fair like that

I cringed how Vanity Fair positioned the interview too. kudos to Priyanka for saying it like it is.

Meghan wrote a blog post about her BFFs and Priyanka is one of them so she can stick up for her friend all she wants.

Meghan said the same thing in her Vanity Fair interview but still they make the headline "Wild about Harry." I found it very disrespectful. Priyanka just addressed that when asked about it. I agree with her.

She can't support Kangana but she will support Meghan Markle...wot is she trying to prove

seems like Kangana isn't worth it

who is Kangana and why do her fans keep talking about her on Priyanka's topics? :S

burn..burn..burn...LOL

Meghan is a better friend than Kangana. Kangana spent the entire year making fun of "actresses going west" and took pot shots at Priyanka so why should Priyanka support her?

They asked for Priyanka's opinion and she gave it. Priyanka said the same thing on Wendy Williams show when asked of "Harry's girlfriend." Meghan didn't have an issue then so won't now either

PC is putting her nose in Meghan's private matter!!! She just needs attention!!

that's her friend that's never had an issue with Priyanka sticking up for her in the past. who are you to talk?

She is trying to win a browny point with Meghan. Invitation is in the mail sweetie. She wants the world to know that she is friendly with the future princesses of England.

PC just wants to be in limelight! Sorry ,this woman does not needs you to stand up for her , she has the broad shoulder of Prince of England to lean on! LOL!
