What began as a story about an armful of Tiffany & Co. baby gifts destined for Harry and Meghan’s royal bub Archie has become more a case of the missing jewels with Priyanka Chopra finally setting the record straight.

The Hollywood actress has taken to Twitter to clear up a report in British newspaper The Sun claiming that Nick Jonas’s and his new wife had visited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby - Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor - for the first time laden with expensive Tiffany gifts.

"While these are great gift ideas ... this story is untrue, and I was actually in town for work. I hope whoever this 'source' is starts checking their facts more often,” Chopra tweeted.

It’s not the first time the 36-year-old has disputed reports about her friendship with the newest member of the British royal family. Earlier this year Chopra shut down US television host Andy Cohen when he claimed she hadn’t attended the Markle’s baby shower because she was upset that “Meghan Markle skipped your wedding to Nick Jonas?” to which Chopra claimed: "Oh my God. No it's not true."

The Quantico star is close to Markle, the American Suits star reaffirming it in an interview with the Press Trust of India.

“We've managed to keep in touch via email and text, and try to see each other whenever we're both in the same town,” the Duchess said.

While it seems the Chopra visitation news is a furphy it remains to be seen whether there was truth to reports that Serena Williams – who helped organise Meghan’s baby shower – had popped in to Frogmore Cottage with her husband Alexis Ohanian, 36, and their one-year-old daughter Olympia.
