Jessica Mulroney seemed to look back on her friendship with Meghan Markle, calling it “pure joy.”
After the controversy the fashion stylist had gone through, rumors had it her friendship with Meghan Markle was “over.”
The 40-year-old underwent a social media hiatus for a couple of months after lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter called her out for using her white privilege in a discourse.
Mulroney’s return on social media
Mulroney shared a photo from Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal wedding in 2018.
The marketing consultant’s three children — the twin Brian and John, 10, and Isabel, 7 — all played significant roles in the Sussexes’ big day.
Her daughter was the former actress’ bridesmaid, and the twins were her page boys, who held her veil while she walked down the aisle.
“I see this and pure joy,” she captioned the snap.

Meghan Markle, Mulroney’s close friendship
Mulroney and Meghan had been very close friends long before the latter tied the knot with Prince Harry and joined the Royal Family.
Their closeness could even be seen at her wedding. She was wearing a blue dress, paired with the same-colored sapphire earrings, People noted.
“So it was almost that she acted as [Meghan’s] ‘something blue,” Eva Hartling, vice president of Meghan’s go-to jeweler Birks at the Birks Group.
“The children were officially her bridesmaids,” she continued. “But she made sure that Jessica was sitting in that first seat closest to where Harry and Meghan were standing.”
It was quite evident that Meghan kept an extraordinary place for her close friends then.
“Even though they weren’t standing at the altar with her, they were in close proximity,” Hartling added. “I thought that was a very nice touch. The seating arrangement at the ceremony spoke volumes.”
Mulroney, Meghan’s friendship, allegedly, done
Mulroney’s latest post marked her return on social media after news emerged that her friendship with Meghan was “done.”
The Duchess of Sussex’s friends alleged to Daily Mail that Mulroney’s “race-based scandal” left the former actress “mortified.”
Exeter posted a lengthy video about Mulroney’s move of taking advantage of her White privilege. In the almost 12-minute clip, Exeter claimed Mulroney “took offense” to the thing she posted online amid the George Floyd controversy.
The Black Lives Matter protest was also rampant at the time. Exeter shared screenshots of Mulroney’s alleged threat to sue her then.
This resulted in the loss of Mulroney’s television gigs and social media hiatus. Meghan Markle also, allegedly, distanced herself from her pal, although she had yet to address the issue publicly.
