Ever since news of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's relationship broke late last year, the world has not been able to get enough of the actress. And now, as rumors heat up that the couple is set to get engaged, everyone is desperate to know more about Markle and the people in her inner circle, one of whom is close friend Jessica Mulroney. Here, we round up the five things you need to about the actress' potential maid of honor.


1. She's a fashion stylist

Mulroney is probably one of the most influential figures on the Canadian fashion scene. She initially carved out a career in PR before stepping into the world of styling and is now responsible for putting together the wardrobe of Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.

2. She is a wedding expert

When she's not styling Canada's First Lady, Mulroney works with bridal wear and even has an entire Instagram account devoted to it. Although Mulroney is not Markle's official stylist, we're pretty sure that if the time came, she'd be more than willing to help her friend choose the perfect wedding dress.

3. She's been friends with Markle for years

Mulroney has been close to the actress for some time. The two reportedly met when Markle relocated to Toronto for her role in Suits, where they apparently bonded over a shared love of yoga and in no time, were hanging out and holidaying together. Their friendship is well documented on both of their Instagram accounts, and Markle even brought Mulroney with her to the Invictus Games last month.

4. She's married to the son of a former Prime Minister

The stylist is married to Ben Mulroney, a TV presenter who is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney. The couple has three adorable children together, who often make appearances on her social media accounts.

5. She started her own charity

Along with her three sisters in law, Katy, Caroline and Vanessa Mulroney, the stylist started Shoebox, a charity that collects and distributes shoeboxes filled with cosmetics to homeless women.
