It is said that the two actresses became friends after Meghan interviewed PC for her popular blog-cum-lifestyle site, 'The Tig'(which has now been shut down). Since then, the two have shared plenty of pictures on Instagram and their camaraderie is all for to see.

Recently, Priyanka told Entertainment Tonight that she thought Vanity Fair's October 2017 issue featuring Meghan (with the headline: 'Wild about Harry') was sexist as it identified the US actress in relation to Prince Harry alone and not with her own achievements.  "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."

In September, at the 2017 Global Goals Awards in NYC hosted by Melinda Gates and U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed, Priyanka Chopra spoke to People Magazine a little more about her good friend, "Sometimes women become plus-ones and guys become plus-ones. It's who is on the radar more... I think in an overall scheme of things, it's harder for for girls to be able to make their own and stand for what they are, and I'm a girl love kind of girl."

PC also shared: "We bonded as actors. “We just became friends, like two girls would."

The two friends have a lot in common - they are both proud feminists and activists. While Priyanka is national UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights and recently delivered a speech in the UN on the need to educate and empower girls, Meghan is an ambassador for the Canadian charity 'World Vision Canada' and also campaigns for women's rights alongside the UN. In a speech she made on the 2015 International Women's Day, she urged women to make their voices heard, saying: "Women need a seat at the table, they need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, they need to create their own table".

"Aged 11, Meghan forced a soap manufacturer to alter an advert after she wrote a letter to then First Lady Hillary Clinton and other high-profile figures complaining that it implied women belonged in the kitchen," wrote the BBC.

Here are more Instagram posts of the two shared by Markle:
