Nothing but love for our new duchess! 

Actress (and royal wedding guest!) Priyanka Chopra swung by our kitchen table to chat with Rach about the ending of her ABC series "Quantico." But while she was here, we couldn't resist asking her about her BFF Meghan Markle, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex.

And Rach got straight to the serious issues! 

First off, Rachael asked if Meghan, who just tied the knot with Prince Harry in a stunning royal wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19, can still communicate normally -- specifically, if she still has a phone -- and Priyanka couldn't help but laugh.

“I think she has a phone. She really is a [normal girl]!" the Indian actress shares. 

Proof? "She still texts a lot," she adds, "which is great."

That's one mystery solved! 

As for her future as a member of the royal family? Priyanka thinks she'll handle it with poise to spare.

And maybe even have an impact on the world to boot.

"She’s such a girl’s girl, and I’ve known her for three years now," says Priyanka. "I’m so happy for everything that’s happened to her, because I really feel like she’s one of those female icons that... could be a strong idol for girls around the world. She really cares about the world -- really cares."

The markings of a true princess, indeed!
