Priyanka Chopra called 'bloody nobody' for ignoring William and Kate at Wimbledon, her fans hit back
Meghan Markle's friend Priyanka Chopra appeared to look away from Prince William and Kate and didn't applaud
Actress and producer Priyanka Chopra is a known friend and supporter of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Chopra, who attended the Sussexes’ wedding, seems to be taking a side now. She appeared to ignore Prince William and Kate as they were applauded into the Royal Box at Wimbledon.
As seen in a new video clip, Chopra did not join the applause given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they took their seats ahead of the women's singles final on Saturday, July 10, where Ashleigh Barty beat Karolina Pliskova and became the first Australian woman to win Wimbledon since Goolagong Cawley in 1980. You can watch the video here.
Photos also showed Chopra appearing to look away from the Cambridges while standing on the Centre Court balcony. For many, this seemed like a snub that was the result of Meghan’s controversial March interview with Oprah Winfrey. Kate and Meghan’s relationship has remained strained over the years, something that was only made worse by the UK tabloids.
Meghan explained to Winfrey, “If you love me, you don’t have to hate her. And if you love her, you don’t have to hate me.” She also said that the “narrative” about how she made Kate cry before her wedding in 2018 was a reversal of how those events actually transpired. She explained, “A few days before the wedding she was upset about flower girl dresses and it made me cry. It really hurt my feelings. It was a really hard week of the wedding. And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologized. And she brought me flowers and a note, apologizing.”
Their relationship may be on a path towards healing now. Ever since the birth of Meghan’s second child, Lilibet Diana, the Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly been attempting to reconnect, a source who spoke to Us Weekly said. “Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lilibet] was born, she’s sending [notes and] gifts and trying to build up a relationship,” they said. “The firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit.”
On social media, Chopra received some hate from supporters of the royal family. “Why the F was she invited? She’s a bloody nobody….and rude to the royals,” tweeted one person. “You can clearly see that @priyankachopra is acting salty and pressed. What gross behavior from a 40-year-old,” tweeted another person.
Not just that. Many also made fun of her attire. Chopra was reportedly wearing a Fendi dress from the Fall 2021 collection. It was reportedly a white turtleneck printed midi dress, replete with a gray snakeskin pattern. The full-sleeve ensemble also featured layered details and an asymmetrical hemline. One Twitter user, commenting on her attire said, “Who is this walking tablecloth?” to which another responded, “She looks ridiculous.” One person said, “It looked to me like the Cambridges ignored her!”

But Chopra’s fans did not seem to think the haters had anything worthwhile to say. “Priyanka Chopra got these Karens pressed lol,” said one Twitter user. Another said, “This not even is just drama or for Meghan, after all that family has done to India, expect she applauds them? For real people has not common sense, but what to expect from racist royalists.”
