Meghan Markle left out of BFF post by long-term pal Jessica Mulroney


Meghan Markle has been left out of a social media post by her pal Jessica Mulroney celebrating her ‘best girlfriends.’

Fashion designer turned TV presenter Mulroney, 41, took to Instagram to gush about her closes friends with the Duchess of Sussex omitted from the line-up.

Instead the Canadian stylist, who has known Meghan since she moved to Toronto for Suits in 2011, paid tribute to socialite Krystal Koo, event producer Kellie Smith and entrepreneur Karolina Segal.

“So lucky to have the best girlfriends in my life. I’m not sure I would have made it without these three,” gushed Jessica.

“Love This! The best friends are the ones that are there when we need it the most. That stay when times are hard,” replied one of the fashionista’s followers.

However, the post was met with many cries of ‘Where is Meghan?’ with some suggesting the Duchess should have been counted among Jessica’s closest besties.

Just last month Jessica had proudly taken to Instagram to show off a stunning bouquet of flowers she had been sent by long-term friend Meghan.

The surprise gift came amid reports the friendship between the two women had soured.

Jessica was happy to set the record straight as she revealed the pretty pick arrangement she’d been sent on her 41st birthday.

“LUCKIEST FRIEND XXXX, THX MM,” she wrote over the image, making it clear who the present had been from.

Meghan’s touching gift came just days after Jessica spoke out to defend her over her controversial Oprah Winfrey interview.

“I don’t know that anyone has ever had to deal with the pressure, the politics and the press like this woman,” Jessica fired alongside a picture of her enjoying a dinner date with Meghan.

“In the face of it all, I have never seen her waver from kindness, empathy and love,” she added.

Jessica said the arrangement was from ‘MM’ as she posted about her gift on Instagram

The ten-year friendship between the two women was called into question after a post from Canadian lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter.

Exeter shared a 11 minute long Instagram video accusing Jessica of ‘text book white privilege.’

She is said to have taken offence to Jessica posting a Martin Luther King Jr. quote on her Instagram.

Jessica responded by publicly apologising and referencing what she has learned through her friendship with Meghan.

She replied: “I know we have different experiences. And that is something that, even in the course of a heated argument, I need to acknowledge and understand. I am unequivocally sorry for not doing that with you, and for any hurt I caused.

“As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and centre. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that. I promise to continue to learn and listen on how I can use my privilege to elevate and support black voices.”

A source then told Page Six of Jessica and Meghan: “Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?”



Jessica said she regards Meghan as ‘family’

Followers also raised eyebrows when they noticed Jessica had deleted a photo of her son on Meghan and Harry’s wedding day.

However, Jessica was happy to set the record straight last September as she insisted she regarded Meghan as family.

“I’m going to tell this once and for all. Meghan and I are family. She is the kindest friend and has checked up on me everyday. Tabloid culture is atrocious. It creates lies and hurtful storyline. Stop feeding into it. Done.”
