All throughout 2019, Meghan Markle's name took over the British tabloids and she faced constant harassment and bullying. In 2020 though, the Duchess is making news for different reasons, such as her decision to reportedly spend more time in Canada along with her husband and child. You may have heard about Markle's recent visit to Canada and her time spent with her best friend, but you may also be wondering, who is Jessica Mulroney?

Mulroney and Markle have been friends for years and met when the former Suits actress lived in Toronto for the show's filming. To this day, they still remain incredibly close.

Here are some things you should know about the Canadian icon:

She's A Very Successful Stylist Here In Canada

According to the Evening Standard, Mulroney started her career as a stylist at a bridal salon called Kleinfeld.

Over the years, she's worked her way up in the industry and has been credited with styling amazing celebrities such as Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, Mindy Kaling, and of course, Markle herself.

She Has Her Own Netflix Show Coming Out This Year

Back in 2019, it was announced that the 40-year-old had paired up with Netflix and CTV for a new original series called I Do, Redo, in which Mulroney gets to help couples whose weddings flopped relive their dream day.

There's no official release date for the new series yet, although it is slated to hit the streaming service sometime in 2020.

She's Married To TV Host Ben Mulroney

Mrs. Mulroney has been married to her husband Ben since October of 2008. Ben is the son of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and Jessica is a descendent of the founders of Browns Shoes Company, so the pair is considered something of Canadian royalty themselves.

She's A Mother Of Three Children

Throughout their marriage, the Mulroneys have welcomed three children into the world — identical twin brothers, Brian Gerald Alexander Mulroney and John Benedict Dimitri Mulroney, and a daughter, Isabel Veronica Mulroney.

Jessica loves to show her children off on her Instagram page, and although she's a busy working mom, she manages to spend an abundance of time with her family. 

She Helped Style Prince Harry And Markle's Engagement Photos

The Evening Standard reported that Mulroney had a hand in picking out outfits and accessories for the Duke and Duchess' beautiful engagement photos.

If your best friend's got a passion for fashion like Markle's, you might as well take her help whenever you can get it!

She Was Born And Raised In Montreal

Mulroney was born on March 14, 1980, in Montreal's Westmount neighbourhood. The Canadian stylist also attended McGill University where she studied Industrial Relations and Economics.

The Duke And Duchess Trust Her Enough To Let Her Take Care Of Baby Archie

According to Just Jared, when they made their return to London recently, Prince Harry and Markle reportedly left baby Archie back in Canada to stay with Mulroney.

The couple confirmed via Instagram yesterday that they plan to transition out of their roles as senior members of the Royal family, and would like to split their time between North America and the U.K.
