Meghan Markle's actress and good friend Priyanka Chopra makes a subtle joke about the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton in the latest web series Citadel. Yes, you read that right!
The Citadel premiered on Prime Video in April. It follows the downfall of a global spy agency. Priyanka and Richard Madden play two ex-spies who try to piece together their past and regain their strength to take on the Manticore criminal organization.
In the third episode of Citadel, Priyanka's character Nadia instructs her partner Mason Kane/Kyle Conroy (played by Richard) to meet with crime boss Baldwin Basto and broker a deal with the military. However, Nadia does not appear in person, only through an earpiece to translate for Mason.
In that scene, Sen Monro's Balduino Basto asked Mason, "Chief of the Armed Forces? You might as well have asked me how to get between the Duchess of Cambridge's legs."
It may be mentioned that neither the makers of Citadel nor the cast has addressed the diss show on the 41-year-old Princess of Wales, who earned the title of Duchess of Cambridge at her wedding to Prince William in April 2011.
Priyanka is a close friend of Kate Middleton's sister-in-law Meghan Markle. The actress was also invited to Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.
In one of her interviews in 2018, Priyanka said, “I've known Meghan for three years and I'm so happy the way the world has responded to her because since I've known her... she's a young relative. woman of today's world. She is the girl who thinks outside the box. She has always been an activist. She always had a strong voice. She is an ambitious girl of today. I think the world needs strong role models like Meghan. And I think, hopefully, Meghan will be one of those people."
During an explosive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, Meghan claimed that Kate made her cry before the high-profile nuptials. Earlier, several reports claimed that Kate was the one who broke down in tears, however, Meghan reportedly clarified that it was "the other way around" due to a twitch over the floral dress.
