Jessica Mulroney reflected Thursday on Meghan Markle’s royal wedding from May 2018, after Page Six reported this summer that their friendship is on the rocks.
In a photo posted to her Instagram account, the Canadian stylist — who returned to social media this month after being accused of “textbook white privilege” in June — shared a screenshot of then-bride Markle walking down the aisle to Prince Harry, as Mulroney’s 10-year-old twin sons, Brian and John, served as page boys.
“I see this and pure joy,” 40-year-old Mulroney captioned the post.
Mulroney, whose 7-year-old daughter Ivy, also participated in the lavish nuptials, had been friends with the Duchess of Sussex for years. They first crossed paths in Canada, where Markle, now 39, worked on the legal drama “Suits.” Earlier this summer, speculation mounted their friendship was crumbling.
“I don’t know what the tipping point was, but Jess has been on the outs for some time,” a source told Page Six in June. “Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?”
Mulroney also came under fire this summer when she was accused of “very problematic behavior” by lifestyle blogger Sasha Exter.
In a clip posted to her Instagram page, Exeter detailed how she had shared a “generic call to action” message on her story in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement. Exeter encouraged her followers to speak up, not calling out anyone specifically. She alleged Mulroney “took offense,” believing the message was directed at her.
“Listen, I am by no means calling Jess a racist but what I will say is this: She is very well aware of her wealth, her perceived power and privilege because of the color of her skin,” Exeter said in the video.
Mulroney issued an apology to Exeter on June 11, announcing that she would be stepping back from social media.
“I plan to use this time to reflect, learn and listen,” Mulroney said at the time.
In response to the allegations, “Good Morning America” severed ties with Mulroney and her husband, Ben Mulroney, stepped down from his post at CTV.
