Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Have a Rule For How Much Time They Can Spend Apart

Celebrities tend to have busy schedules traveling. That could make it hard for a married couple to be in the same place.

Priyanka Chopra revealed that she has a rule with Nick Jonas about how much time they can spend apart. Find out what is the rule and more about their relationship.

Nick Jonas previously talked about finding balance with Priyanka Chopra

The couple is very busy with their careers. Jonas talked about trying to find a balance with Entertainment Tonight.

“She’s done soon with this movie and then she’ll be back for a while… It’s been almost four and half months on the road, and it’s been, you know, interesting,” he said. “But we have an incredibly beautiful balance in our lives and kind of an understanding of our priorities. That’s the most important thing.” Chopra and Jonas are now spending a lot more time together.

They are currently social distancing together

Chopra and Jonas are currently spending time together social distancing to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

Chopra posted photos with a dog on Instagram and captioned it with “Staying home during this time is the safest thing to do. @ginothegerman giving mommy hugs makes it so much better.. @Cavanaughjames.”

She posted another photo cuddling with the same dog and Jonas. Chopra revealed in an interview that they have a rule because of their normally busy schedules.

They can’t go more than 2 or 3 weeks without seeing each other

Chopra revealed they try to make their schedules work for their relationship. There is a time limit for how much time they can spend apart.

“We don’t go more than two [or] three weeks without seeing each other. That’s a rule,” she told Tatler. “It’s too hard otherwise, and you’ve got to work on the relationship, to prioritize it.”

She also made it known that they’re not having kids any time soon because of their plans. “Right now, this year’s really packed for me in terms of the work that I’m doing and the work that I’ve taken on,” she said. “But having a family is very important to me and it always has been. It is something that I definitely want to do and I’m hoping that whenever God wills it, at the right, opportune time, it’ll happen.”

There are still new episodes airing of The Voice. Jonas is a coach this season and he has been given a hard time from the other coaches. Many of them have talk about him being the youngest coach this season.

Kelly Clarkson pointed out that she is a decade older than him. She is 37 years old and he is 27 years old. Jonas had a great response with “My wife is 37. It’s cool.”

She isn’t the only coach to mention his age. Blake Shelton called him out in his welcome message. “I’m going to have to look through the rules because this is my TV show,” he said. “I’m not even sure if you’re old enough to be a coach on The Voice, but I’m certain that you’re going to get your butt kicked, buddy.”

Fans can continue watching this season of The Voice. For now, the married couple is spending time together at home.

Jax and Brittany Have an Unusual Way of Stopping Quarantine Weight Gain

Quarantine 15? No thank you! Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are taking some extreme (and funny) measures to ensure they don’t gain any weight while stuck in quarantine amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, March 25, Taylor, 40, took to Twitter and his Instagram Stories to show off the drastic steps he and Cartwright, 31, have taken to make sure they stay trim and fit while holed up inside. While walking around his California home, the Vanderpump Rules star ventured over from the living room to the kitchen and focused his phone on a scale that had been placed on the floor directly in front of the fridge.

Though the SUR bartender conducted his brief home tour without offering any comments, he did share the clip on Twitter with an emoji — “😂” — indicating he knows the move is LOL-worthy.

Additionally, many of Taylor’s social media followers supported the idea. “I need the scale in front of my snack cabinet,” one Twitter user declared. Added another: “Love the scale in front of the fridge! I’m stealing that idea.”

Since the newlyweds began their quarantine earlier this month, they have been showing off various meals and snacks they’ve been enjoying while at home. On March 11, Taylor tweeted: “Just stocked up on [Cadbury] cream eggs so I dare that virus to at me.” He also said that the California home he shares with Cartwright is now “basically a Costco.”

Speaking of the Kentucky native, she whipped up her twice-baked macaroni — Taylor’s “favorite” — on March 14 and enjoyed some grub from Hooters on Tuesday, March 24.

Aside from attempting to control their eating habits, the couple are also working out whenever they can. On Wednesday, Cartwright made use of a treadmill inside her home. “Time for a run and Good Girls,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories alongside a video clip of herself jogging while watching the NBC drama.

For his part, Taylor showed off some of his favorite exercises in an Instagram post from late last month. “I’m going to show you a couple of quick exercises that you can do in your backyard if you don’t have time to go to the gym,” the Michigan native said at the time, noting that he’s a fan of mountain climbers, kettle bells and jumping jacks.

Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new life

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dropped a royal bomb in January 2020 with the following announcement: 

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote in a statement. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”

The statement continued, “We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

With their so-called “Megxit” officially taking effect March 31, 2020, they spent their time leading up to it in Canada with son Archie, and completed their final official royal duties in early March 2020. What is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new quasi-commoner life like now?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren't allowed to brand themselves as Sussex Royal anymore

One of the most immediate changes for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after their internet-breaking announcement was a superficial one: What would we call them? The Daily Mail reported that despite Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan attempting to trademark the name “Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” they wouldn’t be able to use “Sussex Royal” in their branding. A source told the outlet, “In many ways this is inevitable given their decision to step down, but it must surely come as a blow to the couple as they have invested everything into the Sussex Royal brand The Queen would have had little choice, however.”

Speaking with NBC News, a rep for the Sussexes said that the trademarks were merely filed as a protective measure to keep anyone else from using “Sussex Royal,” but that they’d dropped the filings. Still, in a statement on the Sussex Royal website, the couple noted, in part, that “there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas.'” The statement also noted that Harry and Meghan had no intention of using “any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory”, and would abide by a mandated “12-month review period” before finding “employment outside of the institution.” You can almost taste the salt, but they relented, and “HRH” (Her Royal Highness) has noticeably been removed from Duchess Meghan’s patronage Smart Works website.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were sad to leave the royal family, but didn't feel supported there

Sources told People that the decision for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to leave their roles as senior royals wasn’t an easy one. “It’s bittersweet for Meghan and Harry,” the insider said. “It’s been really sad for them, because they tried.” Still, the insider added, “This is what Meghan and Harry have always wanted — to create their own life. It’s got to feel like an immense relief to get out of the U.K. and go down their own path.”

However, a source told Us Weekly that forging their own way forward wasn’t their only reasoning behind Megxit, and that Prince Harry may have been more angry than weepy upon the couples’ resignation. The press had been particularly ruthless towards the former Suits actress, and Prince Harry got fed up. “When it became clear Meghan was never going to get a fair shake, Harry snapped,” the insider alleged, adding, “He’s adamant that it was his call to move to Canada.” 

One British journalist opined to Vanity Fair that the racism and sexism directed at Duchess Meghan in the press was too much for the Sussexes to bear — and that there may have been some disappointment in the Queen not addressing Meghan’s treatment publicly to help her.

Prince Harry: 'Sometimes the right decision isn't always the easy one.'

Prince Harry has made plenty of on-the-record statements about the couple’s reasoning behind Megxit. However, it was in conversations recorded at the end of 2019 and early 2020, that Prince Harry confessed to who he thought was climate change activist Greta Thunberg and her father that he felt like he had to step down as a senior royal in order to protect Meghan Markle and son Archie from the outside world. Unfortunately, the conversation was actually with Russian pranksters posing as the real-life Swedish superhero and her dad. 

In any case, Prince Harry told who he believed was Thunberg (via The Sun), “Sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy one. And this decision certainly wasn’t the easy one but it was the right decision for our family, the right decision to be able to protect my son. And I think there’s a hell of a lot of people around the world that can identify and respect us for putting our family first.” He also admitted that “marrying a prince or a princess is not all it is made out to be.” Prince Harry also admitted in the call that living a low-key life was much preferable for him than being a royal.

Queen Elizabeth sympathizes with Harry and Meghan

Despite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leaving the U.K. and their senior royal roles, sources say that the other royals, especially Queen Elizabeth II, still adore them. A friend of the royal family told People that the Sussexes are still “much loved members of the family” despite the tension surrounding Megxit, adding, “That stuff runs deep. There is an element of working things through.” The insider said there absolutely was a lot of hurt initially, but that the brood is collaborating well and “kindly” as they work to map out the Sussexes’ future.

Sources told The Sun that Prince Harry enjoyed a heart-to-heart with Queen Elizabeth II over lunch before his and Duchess Meghan’s final royal engagements, and that the queen’s invitation for them to join her at a church service in honor of a fallen soldier was a pointedly kind move. “It was a very moving moment, and a poignant service — and the royals met the family of the soldier afterwards to offer their support.” The source added that the entire service and interaction between the royals was a “respectful” one.

Royal biographer Robert Lacey offered yet another perspective on the queen’s grace towards her grandson and his bride, telling People, “She has a particular sensitivity to what Harry has been going through because of her closeness to Margaret and seeing the same dramas and tensions played out two generations ago.”

Are Prince William and Prince Harry still beefing?

Though Queen Elizabeth II and other royals may still have a soft spot for Prince Harry, his big brother Prince William may having a harder time adjusting to Megxit. Numerous reports claim that Prince William was furious with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from senior royal duties, but their issues reportedly started much earlier, allegedly when Prince William first warned Prince Harry that his relationship with the former actress and lifestyle blogger was moving too quickly. 

In April 2019, sources told the Daily Mail that Prince Harry and Prince William had reconciled. But that October, Prince Harry admitted in an ITV documentary that he and William were “on different paths at the moment,” and in January 2020, when Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan revealed they’d be stepping down, insiders said there was additional strain. “This is not how they wanted to handle this, but Meghan and Harry’s hand was forced,” a source told People. “There is so much bad blood in that family — it’s toxic. If relationships had been better, things would have been different.”

In any case, a source told People in a separate report that Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship is now “forever changed,” adding, “They won’t get back to the way they were. Harry is looking straight ahead at his future with his family. He’s not looking back.”

Kate Middleton probably won't hang out with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle much

Kate Middleton likely isn’t a big part of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s life anymore, either. When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Sussexes celebrated Commonwealth Day in March 2020, there was what many interpreted to be visible tension between the couples. During a very brief interaction at the Queen’s procession in Westminster Abbey, Prince William could be seen greeting Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan momentarily, but it appears Duchess Catherine doesn’t even make eye contact with the pair. At other times during the ceremony, Middleton can be seen speaking to the Earl and Countess of Wessex sitting next to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, but doesn’t appear to interact with the Duke or Duchess of Sussex at all.

A royal insider told Vanity Fair of Middleton’s frosty interactions with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, “Possibly she was tired but she didn’t look overjoyed. To be honest I think Kate has taken it all badly. She, Harry and William were once such a happy trio, she thinks what has happened is all very sad.” Meanwhile, a source told Us Weekly that Middleton was exhausted, and that she misses her bond with Prince Harry and “fears she’ll never be close with him again” — but when it comes to Meghan, “They couldn’t be further apart.”

Much of the Sussexes' Buckingham Palace staff didn't make it through Megxit

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had to let go of most of their U.K. palace staff upon their exit from their senior royal roles. Page Six reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex threw a farewell party for their employees in early March 2020, and that their staffers were weepy at the luncheon in their honor. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan had a staff of 15, but most of them became redundant once the couple crossed the pond. This includes their star-studded communications team, led by Sara Latham, who previously worked for Hillary Clinton and the Obamas.

“Harry and Meghan have often done fun things like throwing pizza parties or hiring ice cream trucks for their staff, but they wanted to do something special going into this last week together,” a source told Page Six. “They toasted the team and thanked them for everything they have done. Some of the staffers cried. They’ve all been through so much together and the staff have been working around the clock to make sure this last visit was as seamless as possible. Meghan and Harry really wanted to show their appreciation, they know how hard everyone has worked.”

It’s unknown which, if any, staffers Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will take with them to Canada — but if tabloid reports about the Sussexes being difficult bosses are to be believed, the axed employees may or may not be dodging a bullet.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are embracing their privacy in Canada

As of this writing, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are residing in a friend’s mansion on Vancouver Island in Canada, in part because of the privacy the area affords.

British Columbia has a special Privacy Act providing protection from the British press, People reports. Privacy expert David Fraser explained to the magazine, “It specifically says that surveillance can be a form of privacy invasion.” He added, “Privacy is also one of the only areas of law that protects a certain set of feelings related to being surveilled or being ‘creeped out.’ So, if you think you’re alone and somebody steps out from a shadow, that jarring feeling of intrusion is something that privacy law increasingly is protecting.”

Duchess Meghan has been spotted on hikes with her dogs, security team, and baby Archie in tow. In one particular excursion, Duchess Meghan appeared to smile seemingly right at the paparazzi’s lenses, as captured by photos and video published in the Daily Mail. She later threatened to pursue legal action over the pictures, according to Harper’s Bazaar, which reported that the Sussexes’ legal team alleged that the photos violated her rights and that the paparazzi action was “alarming.” On another calmer trip, People reported that Duchess Meghan, Prince Harry, and her Suits co-star Abigail Spencer sweetly helped a couple of fellow hikers take a photo.

Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle considering a move to California?

While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are spending most of their time in Canada with baby Archie, as of this writing, they’re rumored to be eyeing properties in Duchess Meghan’s native California as well. People reported that Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are looking forward to spending time in Los Angeles this summer where Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, lives, with a source telling the magazine that the Sussexes will likely have properties in both places.

A source also told E! News, “They have started to look at homes online and are in the process of interviewing security teams. They are getting their ducks in a row and seeing if it’s logistically possible.” The couple have a few “non-negotiables” for their future stateside home. “Meghan would like to be able to do meetings at the house and also be able to host friends and entertain,” the insider said. “Those are two things that are important to her.”

Before purchasing a property, the Daily Mail reported, the couple may rent a palatial pad in Malibu, previously inhabited by Kylie Jenner. The home, called the Petra Manor, has high ceilings, an amazing pool, tennis courts, a home theater and a big kitchen with two islands.

Meghan Markle may want to go back into showbiz

A big reason why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may want to settle in Los Angeles, Calif., besides having her only non-estranged family member there: Some reports suggest the former Suits actress wants to dip her toes back into her Hollywood life. The Sun reported that Markle is eager to meet with agents and to form a professional team in the City of Angels, but that she’s unlikely to appear in scripted works. 

“Her preference is to explore the route of a documentary in which she is able to follow up some of the causes she is interested in,” a source said, adding, “This wish has been the focus of some of her most recent meetings and will likely shape the kind of work the agent Meghan goes with seeks to get for her. She is very excited about what the future holds.” 

According to the U.K.’s Sunday Times, Duchess Meghan is already slated to do voiceover work for Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders.

William and Kate have 'considerable responsibility to boost morale'

Prince William and Kate Middleton have a ‘considerable responsibility’ to boost morale during coronavirus crisis while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are likely to be ‘sidelined’ due to being abroad, royal expert claims

  • Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams says Cambridges can provide a boost
  • Added the royal couple are ‘certain to rise to the challenge of boosting morale’
  • Claimed Duke and Duchess of Sussex will ‘undoubtedly contribute’ on Instagram during coronavirus crisis but are likely to be sidelined as they chose to be abroad
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Prince William and Kate Middleton have a ‘considerable responsibility’ to boost morale among the British people during the coronavirus crisis, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who have relocated with their children to their home in Norfolk, recently visited NHS 111 to thank staff for their help.

Prince William was also the first member of The Firm to speak to the nation during the crisis in a video released last week.

Yesterday it emerged Prince Charles, 71, has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating at Balmoral, while the Queen, 93, and Prince Philip, 98, are currently in isolation in Windsor.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said a ‘very considerable responsibility rests on the Cambridges at this difficult time.

He told Express.co.uk: ‘Their movements are obviously followed avidly by the press and social media and they are certain to rise to the challenge of boosting morale, whilst complying with the behaviour recommended by the Government.’

Mr Fitzwilliams added that the couple will ‘undoubtedly’ send messages which will reach a huge audience through their eleven million followers on Instagram and get thoughts and ideas across during the unprecedented emergency that we all face. 

He said the Cambridges’ visit to NHS staff was ‘undoubtedly a morale booster’ and the unseen photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte that they shared on Mother’s Day were ‘enchanting’.

Mr Fitzwilliams claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently in isolation together in Canada with their son Archie, will ‘undoubtedly’ continue to contribute on Instagram.

However, he added: ‘During this crisis… as they have chosen to be abroad, they are likely to be sidelined.’

Earlier this week an expert claimed Prince William is set to ‘step up into statesman role’ during the coronavirus crisis and will lead the Royal Family’s efforts to support the nation.

Mr Fitzwilliams claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently in isolation together in Canada with their son Archie, will ‘ undoubtedly’ continue to contribute on Instagram but are likely to be ‘sidelined’ as a result of their decision to be abroad

Speaking to Australian website 9Honey, Katie Nicholl said the move was ‘significant’, adding that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the ‘best placed’ members of the royal family to be ‘pillars of support’ for the nation at the moment.

She revealed: ‘We’re seeing William step up in that statesman role. It strikes me as interesting that the first member of the royal family to address the nation has been William.’

Katie said the decision would have been ‘cleared by Buckingham Palace’ before Prince William’s video was released.

The expert explained that the Queen, 93, ‘needs’ to be ‘pretty much in quarantine’ in Windsor due to her age.

Yesterday it emerged Prince Charles, 71, has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating at Balmoral, while the Queen, 93, and Prince Philip, 98, are currently in isolation in Windsor.

Buckingham Palace has insisted the Queen is in ‘good health’, after her eldest son and heir was diagnosed with coronavirus.

It is understood the Prince of Wales met his mother at Buckingham Palace on March 12 – less than two weeks ago. The virus has an estimated incubation period of one to 14 days.

Charles’s doctor is convinced that he would have been contagious from March 13 at the very earliest, based on when the prince first started to develop symptoms at the weekend.

Yesterday the Palace released a picture of the Queen undertaking her weekly audience with the Prime Minister by telephone from Windsor Castle

The Duchess of Cornwall has tested negative but is now isolated from her husband at Birkhall, their Scottish retreat where both are staying.

Yesterday the Palace released a picture of the Queen undertaking her weekly audience with the Prime Minister by telephone from Windsor Castle. 

It shows her wearing a blue blouse and cardigan, surrounded by china corgis and racing trophies, and speaking on a 1970s-style white telephone.
