Before marrying Prince Harry in 2018, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was an actor in Hollywood. As a result, she has a number of celebrity friends and acquaintances. One of her closest buddies seems to be Jessica Mulroney, a fashion stylist and TV personality.
However, while many royal fans are familiar with this connection, not everyone knows how Meghan came to be close with Mulroney.
How did Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney meet?
Neither Meghan nor Mulroney has ever publicly shared how they met, though some sources have given a few details. What most people agree on is that Meghan and Mulroney met when the former was living in Toronto to film the show Suits.
According to Cosmopolitan, who quote royal expert Katie Nicholl in a 2018 article, Meghan and Mulroney had a lot of activities in common, which allowed them to become close.
The outlet wrote, “‘They went to the same yoga and Pilates and became firm friends,’ says Nicholl. ‘Meghan really looks up to Jessica. She thinks she’s a talented person, a wonderful mother, and a great best friend.’ The two worked out in the same gym, shared a hairdresser and manicurist, and ‘hung out all the time,’ adds Nicholl. ‘For years, she styled herself on Jessica.’”
Meanwhile, the 2020 biography Finding Freedom reported that Meghan and Mulroney were introduced to each other “by a local fashion publicist.”
