Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney are still the best of friends and the Duchess of Sussex reportedly keeps tabs on her pal in Canada every day, Mulroney has confirmed.
In a since-deleted social media post, Mulroney made a short statement to finally address the rumors that she had a falling out with Meghan. The stylist said that they both treat each other like family. She describes Meghan as the "kindest friend" because she has been checking up on Mulroney daily.
Mulroney also called out tabloid culture and its tendency to create "lies and hurtful storyline." She asked her followers to stop feeding into the tabloid stories to close her message.
Page Six reported in June that the Duchess of Sussex decided to end her decade-long friendship with Mulroney after the Canadian stylist's controversy. Black lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter called out Mulroney for displaying "textbook white privilege." Exeter accused the stylist of sending threatening messages in private. Mulroney was allegedly offended over Exeter's generic call out over some people's failure to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
A source told Page Six that Meghan wanted to drop Mulroney even before this controversy. Apparently, the Duchess of Sussex felt that the stylist has been using their friendship to boost her career.
Though Mulroney made a public apology to Exeter, she also took a time out of social media for at least two months. The stylist also gave up her hosting duties on various lifestyle shows in Canada and the U.S., including Good Morning America. Her husband, Ben Mulroney, also quit his job on the showbiz program eTalk after 18 years.
Meanwhile, Meghan has never publicly talked about her friends except when she filed a motion in court. Over the summer, the Duchess of Sussex sought a legal action to prevent Daily Mail from exposing the names of five of her closest friends in her fight with the tabloid.
These friends have spoken anonymously against Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, in People Magazine. They are now witnessess to the court case that alleged Daily Mail breached the Duchess of Sussex's privacy when the tabloid published parts of her letter to her father. The tabloid defends that Meghan's friends talked about the letter publicly first.
Though the court granted her request to keep her friends' names confidential, royal observers now say this motion might be overturned as the hearing moves on. According to Daily Express, the judge's exact words for granting the motion is "for the time being" which means it can be overturned.
