THE DUCHESS’ ESTRANGED FRIEND: JESSICA MULRONEY   

It’s the second time Toronto-based stylist Jessica Mulroney has appeared in the the Netflix series – despite her friendship with Meghan reportedly being on the rocks

Meghan and Toronto stylish Jessica were inseparable from the moment they met on the set of TV show Suits. However, reports from recent years have speculated their friendship may be on the rocks.

Mulroney was one of Meghan’s closest pals prior to the potential rift between the pair following Jessica’s comments about ‘white privilege’. 

Rumours of a fall-out between the two women have continued to swirl, with only fleeting mentions of Jessica in the Netflix docu-series – including a blink-and-you’ll miss it snap of her at the couple’s wedding.

The Netflix special is filled with personal moments – including their engagement, where the former TV star phoned Jessica, as Harry proposed and told her ‘it’s happening’

While some of the Duchess of Sussex’s closest friends – including college pal Lyndsey Roth and Suits producer Silver Tree – speak to camera in the series, so far Jessica hasn’t appeared.  

And Mulroney went silent on social media as the Duchess’ new Netflix documentary dropped on Thursday – despite a very intimate phone call between the two women featuring in the series.

Meghan ex-friend Jessica Mulroney was the first person she called while Prince Harry proposed – but she was snubbed from the first episodes of the docuseries

Prolific social media user Jessica – who boasts 412,000 followers on Instagram – has not posted anything on her feed in the past three days. The stylist has also not appeared on her Stories. 

In the second episode of the show, Meghan handed over footage from the night her and Prince Harry got engaged in 2017 to Netflix producers.

Moments before Prince Harry popped the question in the Walled Garden of Kensington Palace, the former Suits star appears to have video-called her Toronto-based friend. 

As she approached the setting, Meghan said: ‘Oh my God Jess, it’s happening. He told me not peek.’

The footage then jumps to a never-before-seen clip of the romantic proposal of Prince Harry down on one knee and surrounded by 15 electric candles. 

From helping her choose her dress to coordinating plans, Jessica was a key player at Meghan and Harry’s 2018 wedding, and both her sons and daughter were even involved in the celebration.

The day of the royal wedding Jessica shared snaps on Instagram and captioned the post: ‘Proud friend. Proud mom.’

Later, a palace insider even suggested to the Mail on Sunday that Meghan frequently confided in the stylist as her and Harry began to solidify their plans to step down as royals.

The source said: ‘Jessica was more influential on “Megxit” than anyone really realized.’

Following the announcement Harry and Meghan were leaving the Royal Family, Jessica said: ‘A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink.

Author and producer Lindsay is one of Meghan’s oldest friends, having studied at Northwestern University with the Duchess – and their close bond was further cemented when Lindsay asked Meghan to serve as her Maid of Honor at her wedding.

She has remained fiercely loyal to Meghan over the years – speaking out in defense of the former Suits star on a number of occasions, including in 2021, when claims of bullying were levied against the Duchess. 

Lindsay features several times in the first three episodes of the documentary, opening up at first about Meghan’s summer 2016 plans, revealing that the Duchess had several trips planned and wanted to spend the months being ‘free’ and single… until she met Harry.

Meghan’s college pal also detailed the ways in which she says the former actress dealt with the earliest days of her relationship with Harry, telling the cameras: ‘She was giddy. 

‘But I also know that she was really trying to live in the moment. She wanted to just get to know him for him, not for who the public thought he was.’

Abigail, 41, spent years appearing alongside Meghan in Suits – with the two forming a close friendship during their time on-set together. 

That friendship was made incredibly apparent in the docuseries, with Abigail revealing that she was one of the first people to learn about Meghan’s then-secret relationship with Harry. 

‘It was 2016, Meghan and I met up in New York,’ she recalled. 

‘We really enjoyed going to have tea and champagne at Bergdorf Goodman. We’d be like, “Let’s meet at the tea room at Bergdorfs.” 

‘She’s like, “Um yeah, I think I met someone and I’m in love. It’s Prince Harry.”‘

Like several of Meghan’s other friends who feature in the Netflix show, Abigail was full of excitement over the earliest stages of their relationship. 

‘I could just feel everything in her body vibrating,’ she shared. ‘We have a photo from that moment. I was screaming because I could tell it was different. 

‘It was very clear from the moment she told me about him that they were in love and they were going to go to the ends of the earth to be together.’

However, Abigail was also quick to make clear how much Meghan had sacrificed in order to make her relationship with Harry work, particularly under the burning glare of public scrutiny. 

‘She had a whole life before she met H,’ she said.
