"Her old friends feel a little bit dumped," a source told Shuter. "First, they attended her wedding at their own expense, and now Meghan is a little too busy for all of them."

Prince Harry's wife even has a new email address and British phone number.

"A lot of her friends can't even reach her anymore," the source said. "They don't know how to get in touch with Meghan and she's not getting in touch with them."

Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 25, confirmed their engagement after only two months of dating with Instagram photos from their traditional roka ceremony, which is a pre-wedding festivity, in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

The snub doesn't come as too much of a surprise, as Markle has become estranged from her father Thomas Markle.

"Her dad says he has not spoken to Meghan since just after the wedding," Shuter revealed. "He tried to call her and the number that he has for her no longer works, or nobody is answering it."
