Meghan Markle recently denied any involvement in the article that was published about her last year.
People spoke with five anonymous friends of Meghan Markle, who seemingly defended her amid all the criticisms she was receiving.
Meghan Markle unaware of her friends’ interview
In a recent statement, Markle’s team said that the Duchess of Sussex didn’t know about the interview beforehand. But she also came to her friends’ defense by saying that they were just concerned about her.
Shortly after she released the statement, it was reported that the Mail on Sunday is threatening to publish the names of Markle’s five friends.

In another statement via Hello! magazine, Prince Harry’s wife said that her five friends and herself aren’t on trial. And the one on trial is the publisher of Mail on Sunday.
“It is this publisher that acted unlawfully and is attempting to evade accountability; to create a circus and distract from the point of this case—that the Mail on Sunday unlawfully published my private letter. Each of these women is a private citizen, young mother, and each has a basic right to privacy,” Markle said.
Meghan’s five anonymous friends speculations
As of late, the identities of Markle’s five friends haven’t been revealed. But Woman’s Day is speculating on who these pals could be.
One of them was described as a friend from Los Angeles, while the second friend was described as a close confidante. The third friend of Meghan Markle was described as a long-time pal, and the fourth one was a one-time co-star. Her fifth and final friend that spoke with People was described as a former colleague.
Markle’s friend from Los Angeles could, allegedly, be Heather Dorak, a Pilates instructor in Hollywood. She, allegedly, visited Markle for a long weekend while she and Prince Harry were living in Canada.
The Duchess of Sussex’s close confidante is, allegedly, Jessica Mulroney. The two have been friends for a decade. But there are rumors suggesting that they had a falling out following Mulroney’s racist remarks.
Markle’s long-time friend could, allegedly, be Lindsay Jill Roth. The actress has, allegedly, been with Markle through thick and thin. They also went to college together.
Suits star Abigail Spencer could, allegedly, be Markle’s on-time co-star. They worked together for years in the hit series.
Markle’s former colleague could, allegedly, be Sarah Rafferty, who played the role of Donna in Suits.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. After all, there are no concrete pieces of evidence that can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Meghan Markle will most likely never reveal her friends’ identities to protect them like how they did for her.
