Far from being disrespectful to the royal establishment, the Amazon Prime series on espionage made a joke about the Duchess of Cambridge, who has long been a counterpart of Chopra Jonas’ dear friend Meghan Markle.
The joke came when Chopra Jonas’ character’s partner (played by Richard Madden) tried to convince a crime boss (played by Sen Monro) to negotiate a deal with top military figures.
Startled by the spy’s big question, the gangster replies, “The chief of the armed forces? You might as well have asked me how to get between the Duchess of Cambridge’s legs.”
Chopra Jonas’ close relationship with Markle is no secret.
The Bollywood star and the Duchess of Sussex first met at the 2016 Elle Women in Television dinner and have stayed in touch. Two years later, Chopra Jonas attended Markle’s glamorous royal wedding to Prince Harry.
Chopra Jonas praised her friend in an essay celebrating her place on the stage Time 100 List In 2018, she wrote, “More than anything, Meghan is a vital influencer in a world that needs strong public figures to respect and look up to.” People to inspire the world. Meghan will be a princess to the people alongside Harry.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently embroiled in their own drama following an incident involving New York paparazzi last week. A spokesman for the couple said they were in a “near-catastrophic” car accident after being chased by photographers during a taxi ride.
Her cab driver’s account seemed to downplay any danger. “I don’t think I would call it a chase,” Driver Sukhcharn Singh told The Washington Post. “I never felt like I was in any danger. It wasn’t like a chase scene in a movie. They were quiet and seemed scared, but it’s New York – it’s safe.”
