Former actress Meghan Markle is used to the spotlight, but nothing will compare to when the royal-to-be marries Prince Harry on Saturday, May 19! Since the occasion will be televised, thousands of spectators are expected to tune in. Luckily, she's bound to look absolutely gorgeous, especially with her stylist best friend by her side. So, who exactly is Jessica Mulroney, the mastermind behind so many of Meghan's iconic royal looks? Scroll down to see everything you need to know about Meghan's best friend and stylist!
Her three kids are in the royal wedding
The two are closer than we thought considering Meghan has chosen to have all three of her kids in her bridal party. Her seven-year-old twin boys, Brian Gerald Alexander and John Benedict Dimitri, will serve as page boys at the special event and her daughter. Isabel Veronica, 4, will be a bridesmaid. We can't wait to see them walk down the aisle!
She lives and works in Toronto
Jessica works as a stylist and PR and marketing consultant in Toronto, Canda. Her nationality is Canadian and she graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. It's assumed Jessica and Meghan met while the actress was filming the USA legal drama Suits in Toronto.
She's married to a Canadian television host
Jessica and Ben Mulroney married on Oct. 30, 2008. Ben is actually the son of a former Canadian prime minister, Brian Mulroney! He also served as a temporary co-host on Live with Kelly! Jessica and Ben were named Toronto's "most polished power couple" back in 2017, and the two share three children.
She co-founded a charity
Back in 2011, Jessica helped co-found the charity The Shoebox Project for Shelters with her sisters-in-law. "Since 2011, The Shoebox Project has distributed over 91,000 Shoeboxes [full of skincare products, soaps, shampoos, and makeup], valued at over $4 million dollars," according to the organization's website. Jessica's BFF Meghan even supported the charity back in May 2017.
She knows how to dress royalty (sort of)
Meghan isn't the only royal Jessica dresses! She's actually the stylist of Canadian first lady Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Jessica's been dressing Sophie since 2015, and she often puts her in Canadian designers such as Sentaler.
She's considered a wedding expert
Jessica sure knows how to plan a wedding, which is great for Meghan! She more than likely gave Meghan the best advice for her upcoming wedding to Harry (who Jessica met during the Invictus Games) and probably had a say in Meghan's wedding dress. She has her own Instagram for all things wedding, and the pics are seriously Pinterest-worthy. Jessica is likely Meghan's go-to for wedding help, so it's safe to say she'll be a guest at the big day!
