Priyanka previously celebrated the baby news when Meghan's pregnancy was announced in October. At the time, she told E! News, "I just have a few of my friends who are having babies right now and I'm like, 'God I need to catch up!'"
Priyanka was one of the attendees at the royal wedding of Meghan and Harry. The two became friends in early 2016, before Meghan became a royal. In an interview with PTI, in July of 2016, Meghan had said of Priyanka, "She has become a really good friend. Elle magazine in the US hosted a dinner celebrating Women in TV, and we met that night — turns out she really likes Suits. You know when you meet someone and you just click? It was just an easy, natural progression. We've managed to keep in touch via email and text, and try to see each other whenever we're both in the same town."
