Thomas Markle Sr.’s not the only only gushing over Meghan Markle today! Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra, who attended the royal wedding this morning in a pale blue custom Vivienne Westwood suit-dress, took to Instagram with an extra-sweet tribute to her longtime pal.

Sharing a selection of shots taken from the the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s nuptials, Chopra got sentimental, commending Markle’s poise on her big day with the passage as follows: “Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still… that happened today. You, my friend… were the epitome of grace, love, and beauty. Every choice made at this wedding by you both will go down in history, not just because it was your wedding, but because this incredible wedding stood for change and hope. Both things that the world needs desperately.”

She continued on to show gratitude for the pair, saying, “Thank you for being the perfect picture of all things good… Seeing your union and love blessed in front of my eyes made me so happy… and tear up! I wish you both love, happiness, and togetherness always.”

As the actress told Us Weekly back in April while confirming her attendance at the royal affair, she’s been close with the bride for three years. The two are so close, in fact, Chopra even penned Markle’s feature for Time’s The 100 Most Influential People of 2018 issue.

“This ever-smiling, strong free spirit found her prince, fell in love and in turn made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again,” she wrote in the piece. “Meghan, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Harry, will be a princess for the people.”
