Unlike summer’s biggest quickie engagement that ended up careening off the rails and into a ditch, summer’s second-biggest quickie engagement appears to be chugging along full steam ahead to the altar. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are supposed to get married this weekend in Jodhpur, India after dating for about six months. E! News posted the famous names on Priyanka and Nick’s wedding guest list, and it would appear that Priyanka’s best Royal family friend Duchess Meghan is skipping the party.
Priyanka was at Duchess Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry. She even showed up in a comically British wedding hat, which is what a good friend does when invited to such a spectacle. Priyanka and Nick’s wedding will be a several-day affair, starting today, and will include a variety of Hindu and Christian ceremonies. And a source tells Entertainment Tonight that Meghan won’t be returning the favor. Apparently India is just too far for a pregnant Meghan to travel right now.
“Meghan isn’t trying to travel as much as she is pregnant. But Priyanka and Nick are extremely happy because their closest friends and family are in India to celebrate their marriage.”
A source tells E! News that if Meghan was able to attend the wedding, she most likely would have been made a bridesmaid. That’s such a shame. I’m sure Meghan would have loved to have taken on the responsibility of grabbing the mic from Nick Jonas after he got white wine drunk and tried to bust out a few bars of Jealous at the reception.
But there’s still lots of other famous people that will be in attendance. According to E! News, here are some of the famous people that will be quietly placing bets with each other on how long Nick and Priyanka’s marriage will last (I’ve got $20 on 20 months).
Obviously all the Jonas brothers will be there, like Joe Jonas and his fiancée Sophie Turner, and Kevin and Danielle Jonas, and the spare Jonas brother Frankie. Nick’s Kingdom co-star Jonathan Tucker will reportedly serve as a groomsman. Chord Overstreet was seen arriving in India, as has Jack McBrayer. A source has confirmed that The Rock will be in attendance, which also means that dinner buffet is about to get DESTROYED.
Not confirmed, but possibly suspected to be there are Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Ripa, Demi Lovato, Hilary Duff, and Shania Twain. Yes, Shania Twain. According to an E! News source, Nick and Shania are good friends, and there’s a chance she could be in attendance. Well it looks like there will be royalty at their wedding after all. Okay fine, Canadian country royalty might not be legit, but you take what you can get.
