Meghan Markle’s ‘estranged’ best friend Jessica Mulroney has kept silent on social media today as the three final episodes of the Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix documentary dropped. 

Prolific social media user Jessica – who boasts 414,000 followers on Instagram – has not posted anything on her account since Monday – despite repeatedly featuring in the six-part docuseries, Harry & Meghan. 

The Toronto-based stylist, 42, appears at least twice in the programme – featuring in a black and white photo from Meghan and Harry’s May 2018 wedding, and in an intimate call with the Duchess about the prince’s proposal.

However, while some of the Duchess’ closest friends – including college pal Lyndsey Roth and Suits producer Silver Tree – speak to the camera in the series, Jessica doesn’t appear.

Jessica has so far remained silent on Instagram today – after featuring in the docuseries – following the release of the final three episodes. 

However, earlier this week, Jessica shared a cryptic message on her Instagram Stories, featuring a shared post that said: ‘Best thing I ever did was learn how to move without the crowd.’

The post followed Jessica appearing to feature in the second episode of the Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, Netflix docuseries.

In the episode, footage from the night the Sussexes got engaged in 2017 is aired.  

Moments before Prince Harry popped the question in the Walled Garden of Kensington Palace, the former Suits star appears to have video-called Jessica, who is based in Toronto.

The Netflix special is filled with personal moments – including Harry and Meghan’s engagement, where the former TV star phoned Jessica, before Harry proposed, and told her ‘it’s happening’

As she approached the setting, Meghan said: ‘Oh my God Jess, it’s happening. He told me not to peek.’

It is thought that ‘Jess’ refers to celebrity stylist Jessica, who was one of Meghan’s closest pals prior to the potential rift between the pair following Jessica’s comments about ‘white privilege’. 

The footage then jumps to a never-before-seen clip of the romantic proposal of Prince Harry down on one knee and surrounded by 15 electric candles. 

Meghan and Jessica were reportedly inseparable from the moment they met on the set of TV show Suits, however, reports from recent years have speculated their friendship may be on the rocks.

Rumours of a fall-out between the two women have continued to swirl as Jessica has not appeared in the Netflix docuseries – despite reportedly playing an ‘influential’ role in Megxit.   

From helping her choose her dress to coordinating plans, Jessica was a key player at Meghan and Harry’s 2018 wedding, and both her sons and daughter were even involved in the celebration.

The day of the royal wedding Jessica shared snaps on Instagram and captioned the post: ‘Proud friend. Proud mom.’

Later, a palace insider even suggested to the Mail on Sunday that Meghan frequently confided in the stylist as her and Harry began to solidify their plans to step down as royals.

The source said: ‘Jessica was more influential on “Megxit” than anyone really realized.’

Following the announcement Harry and Meghan were leaving the Royal Family, Jessica said: ‘A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink.’  

It appeared as though they became distant in 2020 when the style guru was called out by lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter for comments she made regarding ‘white privilege’ while the pair had a conversation about the Black Lives Matters movement.

Although Jessica denied being a racist, Sasha, claimed the stylist left her ‘paralyzed with fear’.

Following the blogger’s claims, Jessica issued three public apologies, however she still faced consequences and was dropped by numerous television networks.

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that ABC severed ties with her, confirming that Jessica would not be returning to her occasional role as a fashion contributor on Good Morning America.

Canadian TV network CTV also cut off ties with the stylist, revealing that it would be pulling all episodes of her wedding-themed reality TV show I Do Redo from its platform.

Rocky waters for Jessica continued as she was then accused of using Meghan as her ‘superpower,’ however, she denied there was any truth to this and refused to talk about the Duchess during interviews.

As the backlash against Jessica built up, Meghan remained quiet and distant on the matter.

Earlier this week, Jessica shared a cryptic message on her Instagram Stories, featuring a shared post that said: ‘Best thing I ever did was learn how to move without the crowd.’ 

However, following the former Suit star’s 40 birthday, a source told DailyMail.com that the pair were still friends, despite seeing each other less frequently.

‘Meghan is in regular touch with Jessica,’ the source said. ‘It’s just difficult now they’re in California and Jessica’s in Toronto.’

A different source then claimed their friendship is no longer ‘what it once was,’ adding that this was due to the pair having ‘just grown apart’ and not because of the fallout between Jessica and Sasha.

The insider added: ‘Of course, Meghan has been worried about Jess. She’ll always have love for her.’

However, Jessica later told Page Six that she and Meghan are ‘constantly’ in touch via FaceTime.

But since Jessica didn’t get a spot in the explosive docuseries, speculations that their friendship may have ended for good are said to have grown.
