Update 6/2/19: Despite initial reports, Priyanka Chopra has revealed that she and Nick Jonas have not, in fact, met Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby. The actress took to Twitter on Friday to reveal that the rumors that they stopped by Frogmore Cottage and gifted Archie with extravagant goodies from Tiffany's were not true. Rather, Chopra was in town for a work engagement. "While these are great gift ideas... this story is untrue, and I was actually in town for work. I hope whoever this 'source' is starts checking their facts more often," she penned.

However, this does not indicate a feud between the two old friends. In a new interview with The Sunday Times, Chopra spoke incredibly highly of Markle. “Meghan is such a progressive, modern girl. She’s what the world is today—a self-made woman who looks like each one of us. I mean, she’s stunning, but she is so completely herself," she said, per Cosmopolitan. She called the treatment of Markle by the tabloids "really unfortunate," and said that " “Of course it has to do with racism, it’s an obvious reason." But, she added, "if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her.”

She also confirmed Markle's royal status has not changed who she is as a person. At all. "The beauty of Meg is that she’s been herself through all of this. A lot of people got to know her after everything [once she started dating Harry], but I knew her before and she’s the same chick," said Chopra. "Now that she’s got a real platform, she talks about the same things she always did. We spent hours speaking about the difference that influence and dialogue can make to the world before this whole thing happened, so what you see now is authentically her.

She’s always been the girl wanting to move the needle.”

Original Story:Baby Archie Harrison Moutbatten-Windsor won the baby lottery. Not only are his parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but he’s got some of the coolest aunties and uncles on the planet (both real and honorary).

Earlier this month, the little royal reportedly received a visit from none other than tennis superstar Serena Williams, who just so happens to be good pals with the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and now, it’s Auntie Pri (a.k.a. worldwide superstar Priyanka Chopra) and Uncle Nick Jonas’s turn.

The Sun reports that the actress, 36, and singer, 26, headed overseas to Windsor, England, in order to meet the royal baby—and they came bearing gifts!

According to the publication, Chopra and Jonas bestowed the three-week-old baby with goods from Tiffany & Co., including (get this!) a $250 sterling silver bubble blower with a Tiffany blue accented finish.

Chopra has a history with the brand: She threw her October 2018 baby shower at Tiffany’s Blue Box Café and dropped plenty of hints to her now-husband about wanting her engagement bling from the brand. (Spoiler alert—he delivered.)

Gifts aside, The Sun reports that the pair’s visit went well, with the couple adoring Archie. "They thought baby Archie was just adorable and Meg is loving her new life," a source told the outlet, adding, "[Meghan] looked fantastic and has taken to life as a mum swimmingly."

In addition to acquainting the twosome with Markle’s newborn, the trip also served to put to bed any feud rumors between the two women, who have been friends since meeting in 2016 at an ELLE Women in Television dinner.

“Oh, my God,” she said of reports that she was “crushed” Markle didn’t attend her December 2018 wedding and declined to attend the Duchess’s baby shower in New York City out of spite. “No, it’s not true.”
