Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney have rekindled their friendship after months of an alleged falling-out.
Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney have maintained a close bond after their alleged feud in the past three months. Their friendship was tested after Mulroney was involved in a white privilege controversy, but they have already mended fences.
Meghan Markle buries the hatchet with BFF
Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney were very close. In fact, the latter’s children played important roles in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding.
But their friendship headed south when Mulroney was accused of racist bullying, which didn’t sit well with Markle, who is a woman of color. A source told Life & Style that they didn’t speak for three months.
The incident was painful for the two, especially that Markle hasn’t made real friends since they moved to Montecito. Thus, cutting ties with the Canadian stylist was even more painful for the royal. Mulroney, who was aware of her mistake, reportedly reached out to Markle.
“Jessica knew she messed up. She wrote letters and even had her husband, Ben, speak to Harry,” a source told Life & Style.
“The truth is, Jessica and Meghan are like sisters. They may have had a falling-out, but it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be repaired.”
Mulroney took a break from social media for two months. When she returned, she shared a snap from Markle’s royal wedding, calling it “pure joy.” But she also deleted it shortly, explaining later to Vanity Fair that it attracted bullying and hatred.
Mulroney’s controversy revisited
Sasha Exeter called out Jessica Mulroney for threatening her job after she encouraged other bloggers to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Exeter refused to call Mulroney a racist but said the duchess’ best friend “ticked every single box of what a white woman should absolutely not do during the biggest racial uproar in history.”
Mulroney owned her mistake and apologized. She stressed that she didn’t mean to jeopardize Exeter’s livelihood. She described it as a disagreement that got out of hand.
Markle allegedly disowned Mulroney after the incident
Meghan Markle is very outspoken with her support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Thus, Jessica Mulroney’s opposition to the movement is something that didn’t sit well with the duchess.
Mulroney’s team said she felt completely ditched by Markle and feared the duchess would cut her out of her life for good; a source told The Sun’s executive editor Dan Wooton.
“She’s completely distraught and devastated because Meghan has done nothing to stand up for her publicly. Jessica is terrified she will never work again. Meghan has forsaken her most loyal friend just to look woke,” the insider added.
