Does Meghan Markle’s BFF, Jessica Mulroney Secretly Style the Duchess?
Despite her expensive taste, Meghan Markle is a fairly low-key royal when it comes to beauty and style. The Duchess of Sussex allegedly does her own hair and makeup for royal engagements and often opts for a messy bun and natural-looking makeup. But, while it might appear as though the royal styles herself for her royal life, some believe her best friend, Jessica Mulroney is her secret, unofficial stylist.
Does Meghan Markle have a stylist?
According to Hello! Magazine, Meghan Markle doesn’t have a stylist on staff. However, the publication believes her best friend, Jessica Mulroney offers the Duchess of Sussex fashion advice. In fact, Meghan Markle even brought the Canadian stylist on her official royal tour of Australia last year.
While she might have offered Meghan Markle some style advice for her first big royal tour, Jessica Mulroney was allegedly there on an unofficial capacity and covered her own airfare and accommodations. However, she and her husband, Ben Mulroney were present for the 16-day trip and joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s staff.
That’s not the first time the stylist has helped her royal BFF out with fashion. Last year, Jessica Mulroney gained a lot of attention ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding and was dubbed the unofficial wedding planner. The Canadian stylist has a background in bridal styling and works as a Kleinfeld consultant.
Following the royal nuptials, Jessica Mulroney allegedly continued to help Meghan Markle find the perfect looks for her royal engagements. One of her most famous contributions to the Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe was a sleeveless trench dress by Canadian designer, House of Nonie, which Meghan Markle wore last July while visiting the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition. On the heels of her appearance, the designer revealed a major clue about Meghan Markle’s stylist and thanked Jessica Mulroney for the feature on Instagram.
Inside Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney’s relationship
Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney go way back. The best friends met while Meghan Markle was living in Toronto for her television series, Suits. The two allegedly bonded over their love of yoga.
On top of that, Jessica Mulroney played a key role in Meghan Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry. When they first started dating, she and her husband often had the couple over for dinner to avoid paparazzi. “When Harry first started going to Toronto to visit Meghan, it was Ben and Jessica who had them over at their house for dinners because it wasn’t easy for them to go out in public without the risk of getting spotted,” a source told E! News.
Traveling is a big part of their friendship — which is likely why the Duchess of Sussex invited her bestie on her Australian tour. Before Meghan met Harry, she and her stylist BFF would often vacation together. The two traveled to Positano, Italy in August 2016.
Jessica Mulroney has also visited her royal best friend in London a few times. She allegedly helped the duchess pick out her wedding dress and even flew to her best friend’s new home in April 2018 to help finalize wedding plans. The stylist’s three children also served in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bridal party.
While they don’t live in the same country anymore, the two remain closer than ever. In February, Jessica Mulroney joined Meghan Markle on a girl’s trip in New York City to celebrate the future royal baby.
