The duchess was spotted in NYC on Monday, wearing a Victoria Beckham long black wool coat and a grey Helene Berman tweed pageboy cap.
Mrs Mulroney is Meghan’s best friend and supported her in the difficult days leading up to her wedding to Harry amid the turmoil caused by the absence of her father, Thomas Markle.
Her children – twin sons Brian and John and daughter Ivy – were pageboys and bridesmaid at the royal wedding.
Meghan’s trip comes just days after five unnamed close friends of the duchess spoke to the publication People in an effort to counter the ‘global bullying’ directed at her.
One friend challenged reports that Mr Markle has said he cannot contact his daughter, telling the magazine: ‘He’s never called; he’s never texted. It’s super-painful.’
Mr Markle dismissed the claims and responded by revealing a deeply personal letter he received from Meghan following the wedding.
Kensington Palace declined to comment on the duchess’s break in New York.
