Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Recreated Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Engagement Photo

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas posed for a portrait at New York Fashion Week, shot by Alexi Lubomirski, the same photographer who shot Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's official engagement portraits. The photo seems to recreate one of the iconic shots of Harry and Meghan.

Friendship means being able to copy an iconic engagement photo and not having to say you're sorry.

Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle's friendship (opens in new tab) goes back way before the latter became a member of the British royal family (opens in new tab). They go back to the days when Meghan was allowed to have an Instagram — back to the days when she was posting pictures with grainy, framed filters. Meghan's 'gram may be gone (opens in new tab), but the evidence lives because the internet is a beautiful place:

Priyanka and Meghan (opens in new tab) are so close that the Quantico actress even made the coveted guest list (opens in new tab) to Harry and Meghan's royal wedding (opens in new tab) in May. Here she is, looking every bit the part of a royal BFF, in her pale lavender suit (opens in new tab) and matching fascinator at the highly-publicized Windsor wedding:

So, now that Priyanka is embarking a fairytale romance (opens in new tab) of her own, with singer Nick Jonas (opens in new tab), it's not really a shock that she's taking a page from her best friend's love story — specifically, the page that contains Meghan and Harry's (opens in new tab) iconic engagement photos (opens in new tab), shot by famed photographer Alexi Lubomirski (opens in new tab).

At the Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Show (opens in new tab) at New York Fashion Week, Priyanka and Nick (opens in new tab) sat for their own photo session with Lubomirski and the photo is...familiar.

Here's Nick and Priyanka's (opens in new tab) loved up photo:

And, to refresh your memory, here's Harry and Meghan's iconic Lubomirski shot (opens in new tab):

If you're feeling your jaw drop a bit at the deja vu evoked by the picture, you're not alone. Elizabeth Holmes (opens in new tab) pointed out the similarity on Instagram, giving a hat tip to Brooke Travis (opens in new tab) for pointing it out initially.
