New York, April 20 : Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, a close friend to Meghan Markle, who will become a member of the British royal family after her wedding to Prince Harry next month, is confident the compassionate and free-spirited woman will be a "princess for the people".
Priyanka has penned a profile for Markle, who features in the Time 100 Influential People of 2018 list.
"Somewhere among biryani, poutine and endless conversations, I realised just how deeply Meghan Markle cares for the world. With her, what you see is real, and what you get is a relatable young woman with her heart and mind in the right place. Her compassion, evident in the causes she supports, and her drive to break down stereotypes -- obvious in her actions -- will connect her to a generation in much need of kindness," Priyanka wrote.
The "Quantico" star believes Markle's love story with Prince Harry is nothing short of a fairytale.
"This ever-smiling, strong free spirit found her prince, fell in love and in turn made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again. But more than anything else, Meghan is an important influencer in a world that needs strong public figures to respect and look up to. People the world can be inspired by. Meghan, standing shoulder to shoulder with Harry, will be a princess for the people.
"Love always, my friend. Live happily ever after," Priyanka signed off about Markle, whose "Suits" airs in India on Comedy Central.
