ON THE SIDE OF MEGHAN

THE BFF: Jessica Mulroney

Widely conceived as Meghan & # 39; s BFF – and unofficial stylist – Jessica Mulroney is a clear precursor, although her American location means she will be a godparent from afar.

The American stylist, a mother of three married to Canadian TV presenter Ben Mulroney, is so close to the duchess that her four-year-old daughter, Ivy, was a flower girl at the royal wedding.

Her seven-year-old brothers John and Brian had the honor of being pag boys.

The 39-year-old, who divides her time between Toronto and New York, where she works for Good Morning America as a fashion initiator, even has photos of the royal wedding at her home, with the stylish black and white flashes revealed in a video she posted last year.

THE MOTHER OF MEGHAN & GOD CHILDREN: Benita Litt

He took Harry and while the Prince was engaged in engagements, Harry went on a safari in Botswana, organized by Mark.

From that moment he was an important leading figure when Harry and William tried to cope with the loss of their mother.

After his spell as an assistant to the prince had ended, he remained a mentor for Harry.

In 2009, Mark founded the MDM Bars and Pubs management company and runs two caf├ęs, The Sand & # 39; s End and The Brown Cow, in south-west London, both of which became Prince Harry's places of entertainment.

Mark's six-year-old son, Jasper, the godson of Prince Harry, was chosen as a pageboy for the wedding of the duke and duchess of Sussex.
