Meghan Markle’s 10 Best Celebrity Friends


We all know about the Duchess of Sussex’s amazing kindness and generosity, so it’s no surprise that she has lots of amazing friends who love her to bits! And given that she was an accomplished actress before she met her prince, it makes sense that many of her best friends are celebrities. Let’s meet the star-studded cast.

1. Abigail Spencer

As if just another sign that Meghan was meant for Harry, her close friend of over 10 years, Abigail Spencer, is distantly related to the Spencer family in England and therefore Princess Diana, William, and Harry! Meghan and Abigail were co-stars on Suits. Abigail thought it was the prince who was the lucky one when he and Meghan got engaged. She was right!

2. Janina Gavankar

Janina has been friends with Meghan for almost 20 years! An actress from True Blood, Gavankar was among the chosen few seated in the exclusive area of the chapel where Markle’s mother and members of the royal family also watched the wedding.

Meghan is close friends with human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. George Clooney and Prince Harry have been friends for several years. After Harry met Meghan, the two couples went on double dates! Amal and Meghan share a strong commitment to social justice. They even have the same hairstylist — the one that Amal recommended to Meghan.

Now that’s friendship!

4. Priyanka Chopra

A native Indian actress, Priyanka was already a fan of Suits when Markle met her. It was mainly their mutual interest in the world that brought the two friends together, which eventually led to Priyanka’s invitation to the royal wedding. Priyanka also brought her fiancé Nick Jonas to meet Meghan and Harry. We expect she wanted royal approval!

5. Serena Williams

The world-famous tennis star and Meghan have been close since they met in 2014 when they both participated in DirecTV’s Celebrity Beach Bowl. Meghan gushed about Serena in her lifestyle blog, The Tig, saying that they “hit it off immediately.” She explained that their greatest source of connection was their mutual “belief in exceeding expectations—our endless ambition.”
