It looks like no matter where she goes, actress Priyanka Chopra might not be able to escape questions about the royal wedding. The actress's latest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon led to yet another question about her attendance to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's upcoming wedding. The actress, though, maintained that she was 'happy to be a part of her friend's big day'.

With the third season of her series, Quantico, ready for release, the actress spoke about her friendship with the soon-to-be royal. Chopra revealed that she met Markle for the first time in 2015 during an Elle Women For TV dinner. Since then the two have grown to be close friends.

The Quantico actress even wrote a touching essay for Time magazine, when Markle featured in their 100 most influential men and women list. "This ever-smiling, strong free spirit found her prince, fell in love and in turn made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again."

On Fallon's show, the actress repeated the idea saying regardless of her attendance, she was happy for Markle. "Forget attending or not, I’m just really happy for a friend of mine," she said.

But this happiness would soon turn into one of the most freakish experiences for the actress when Fallon's second guest, magician David Blaine turned up to perform a trick. Sewing his mouth shut, the illusionist turned the host and Chopra into nervous wrecks. Fallon eventually lost his lines, while Chopra could not believe her eyes. 

The show also saw Chopra continue her old, friendly feud with Fallon with another challenge. Contrary to her regular practice of beating the host, the actress, for the first time lost to a challenge she brought on herself. Setting out to see who chews and swallows 10 skittles first, the actress lost out to Fallon.

Currently, Priyanka Chopra is preparing for the release of the third season of Quantico, before she will return to India to shoot for Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat.
