“I’ve seen that and it’s really unfortunate.”

“But if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her. Of course it has to do with racism, it’s an obvious reason.”

Priyanka went on to describe how Meghan has handled herself under the pressure of joining the royal family.

“The beauty of Meg is that she’s been herself through all of this.”

“A lot of people got to know her after everything, but I knew her before and she’s the same chick.”

“What you see know is authentically her,” she finished.
