The new Amazon Prime Video series “Citadel,” starring Meghan Markle’s good friend Priyanka Chopra, reportedly made a dig at the Duchess of Sussex’s sister-in-law and rival Kate Middleton.
In the series’ third episode, Chopra, who plays espionage agent Nadia Sinh, provides another character instructions via an earpiece, according to the Daily Mail.
During a meeting with a crime boss, the actress reportedly instructs the other character to say, “The chief of armed forces? You might as well have asked me how to get between the legs of the Duchess of Cambridge!”
Middleton was named the Princess of Wales after Queen Elizabeth II died in September, but she likely still held the title of the Duchess of Cambridge when “Citadel” Season 1 was shot.
A rep for Amazon Prime Video could not immediately be reached for comment on the mention. Page Six has also reached out to Chopra’s publicist for comment.
However, it’s evident that the “Quantico” alum was aware that the raunchy remark about Middleton was in the script, as she was reportedly in the scene in which it was uttered.

Chopra, 40, has been close friends with Markle, 41, for years and even attended the “Suits” alum’s royal wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.
Markle has alleged that Middleton, 41, made her cry leading up to famous nuptials.
“Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true,” the duchess shared during an explosive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.
Previous reports claimed Middleton was the one who broke down in tears , but Markle clarified that the “reverse” happened due to a tiff over flower-girl dresses.
Four months after the Archewell co-founder’s revelation, Chopra sat right behind Middleton and Prince William at Wimbledon and seemed to ignore the pair.
The Bollywood star was spotted in video from the tennis tournament avoiding eye contact with the royals as they took their seats right in front of her.
Markle and Middleton’s relationship does not seem to have improved at all in recent years.
