One of Meghan Markle's closest friends has taken her own engagement photo inspiration from the Duchess. But not everyone is happy with the similarity.

A tribute to Duchess Meghan?

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas recently confirmed their engagement and from this surprising photo, it looked like the pair took their cue from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who incidentally was the one who took Meghan and Harry's engagement photos, also captured a similar one of Priyanka and Nick. He shared the image on his Instagram page.

In the picture, Priyanka can be seen sitting on the ground leaning against Nick who sat on a blue velvet chair. It certainly reminds us of this particular photo of Harry and Meghan that melted hearts last year.

Mixed reactions

While a lot of people were in awe of the soon-to-be-married couple, there were those who felt like Alexi's reenactment of the royals' picture was not a good idea.

For example, Instagram user, @Mimigrammie4, felt that the photographer's decision will end up pitting both couples against each other and make both ladies, who happen to be friends, feel like rivals.

Shame on you for trying to recreate the photos of the wonderful Royals. Very tacky. Loved photos of Harry and Meghan but all you are going to do is set off a shit storm with debates on who looked better and who is better which has already happened. No one compares to the integrity and beauty of Harry and Meghan though.

@Crisbjones1 agreed but also pointed out that the couple should have gone for something more original.

I have to agree with a lot of the comments that it's disappointing because it's not an original piece and to be honest I'm not crazy about that dress but other than that they look great.

The commenters probably have a point as since the picture was shared online, many have taken to social media to debate about who looked better. 

"With all my heart and soul"

We doubt if Priyanka and Nick are bothered about all the drama being caused by their engagement photo. They are probably basking in the glow of their love.


Taken.. With all my heart and soul..

After months of speculations about the couple's relationship, the actress shared an Instagram post last month where she confirmed they were together. In the caption, Priyanka said:

Taken. With all my heart and soul.


The only way to do this... with Family and God. Thank you all for your wishes and blessings 🙏🏼♥️🎉

Congratulations to the happy couple.
