Priyanka also does a lot of charity work and was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Children’s Rights in 2010.

Who's her husband Nick Jonas?
The couple announced their engagement on August 18, 2018.
They both posted the same photo of the two of them on Instagram, with Priyanka's engagement ring on show.
Nick commented on Priyanka's post 'Wow.. congrats. He's the luckiest guy in the world.'
The Sun exclusively revealed how Priyanka and Nick have taken inspiration from her pal Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding for their own big day — by hiring a palace fit for a princess.
They tied the knot on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at Umaid Bhawan Palace, in Jodhpur, India, with a whole week of festivities leading up to their nuptials.
Nick’s pastor dad, Paul led the Christian ceremony, and Priyanka wore a Ralph Lauren dress.
In November 2021, it was speculated that the two may have broken up after Priyanka dropped "Jonas" from her Instagram handle.
Her bio now reads simply: Priyanka.
She made a similar move on Twitter as that bio now shows her first name in bold letters and nothing more.
Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra dismissed the rumors to News18, saying: “It’s all rubbish, don’t spread rumors.”
