Jessica Mulroney switches her instagram account to private

Meghan Markle’s best friend Jessica Mulroney has switched her Instagram profile to private following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s announcement that they would be stepping back from royal duties. 

The Canadian stylist, 39, who boasts over 360,000 followers, took her account off public after Harry, 35, completed his talks with the royal family over his and Meghan’s new pared-back roles. 

Over the weekend it was announced that the Sussexes – who will split their time between Canada and Windsor – would no longer be using their HRH titles.

The move by Jessica, who reportedly spent time with the couple in Canada during their six-week Christmas break, could be an effort to avoid trolls.

The change follows reports that Jessica joined Meghan and Harry during their six-week break in Canada over the Christmas period.

Meghan and Harry are due to split their time between London and Canada, where Jessica Mulroney and Meghan’s mother Doria are predicted to be more actively involved in Archie’s upbringing.

The Sussexes will no longer be able to perform royal duties, as part of their deal to step down as senior royals. 

Jessica, whose daughter Ivy, 5, was a flower girl and twin sons carried Meghan’s veil at the royal wedding in 2018, reportedly babysat Archie in Canada while Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, returned to London last week to discuss their decision to step back from their senior royal positions

Little Ivy was a flower girl at the royal wedding last May, while Jessica’s twin sons John and Brian, of whom Meghan is godmother, carried the Duchess of Sussex’s train.

Mulroney, a professional stylist who has worked with singer Shania Twain and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ‘s wife Sophie, played a key role in planning the royal wedding, according to the magazine Vanity Fair, citing anonymous sources.

Born Jessica Brownstein, Mulroney married television host Ben Mulroney, who is also the son of a former Canadian prime minister.

Before Harry and Meghan made their relationship official, Jessica Mulroney shared many photos of herself with the now-Duchess of Sussex on her Instagram.

But since the couple’s marriage, Mulroney has been much more assiduous. She only posted one message after the wedding: ‘Proud friend, proud mom,’ she wrote.

‘Every person has to have a bit of privacy in their life,’ Mulroney told Harper’s Bazaar in March 2019, the only interview she has given since the wedding.

‘There are things I’ll never talk about for sure,’ she said, referring to her friendship with Meghan. 

In August, after Meghan and Harry came under fire for taking a private jet to visit the singer Elton John on the French Riviera, she slammed critics who attacked her friend. 

‘Shame on you, you racist bullies,’ she wrote on Instagram, without going into further detail.

And on Thursday, just after Harry and Meghan’s announcement, Mulroney took to Instagram once more to share a quote from the black singer Gina Carey in an allusion to recent developments and a show of support for her friend.

‘A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink,’ she posted.
