Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Royal News -

The duchess shares her ex­cit­ing baby news with her bestie

Over the past few years, she’s risen through the ranks to be­come one of the world’s most fa­mous women but Prince Harry’s bride Meghan Markle man­aged to quite lit­er­ally fly un­der the radar when she jet­ted into Canada to visit her best friend.

The 37-year-old flew to Toronto – where she lived while she was in the cast of the hit TV drama Suits – for a mini-break with her bestie Jessica Mul­roney late last month. And ac­cord­ing to sources the Duchess of Sus­sex had a clear-cut rea­son to make the long-haul flight. She has ex­cit­ing news to share and she wanted to tell her bestie in per­son – she’s preg­nant!


“Meghan has made no se­cret of how much she wants to start a fam­ily, and of course she’d be su­per-ex­cited to tell Jess,” an in­sider says. “Jess has been some­one she could con­fide in ever since she se­cretly started dat­ing Harry. Her life has changed so much in two years, but her friend­ship with Jess has never wa­vered.”

Meghan, who Woman’s Day re­vealed is be­lieved to be ex­pect­ing a boy, stayed at the house Jess shares with her TV host hus­band Ben, 42, and the women spent their days re­lax­ing by the pool, cook­ing – one of Meghan’s favourite hob­bies – and play­ing with Jess’ chil­dren.

Jessica’s eight-year-old twins Brian and John were page­boys car­ry­ing Meghan’s veil at her wed­ding to Prince Harry on May 19, and her daugh­ter Ivy, five, served as one of the flower girls.

Meghan misses Jessica dearly now she’s re­sid­ing in the UK and had a won­der­ful time catch­ing up with her friend.


“Toronto will al­ways hold a spe­cial place in Meghan’s heart. It be­came her sec­ond home when she worked on Suits and she’s been long­ing to visit for the past few months. Things have been non-stop for Meghan, so it was great to have a few days to un­wind and go back to her roots,” our in­sider says.

It will come as no sur­prise that Meghan also made sure she got lots of par­ent­ing ad­vice. “She thinks Jess is an amaz­ing mum and ad­mires the way she bal­ances par­ent­hood with her ca­reer,” adds the in­sider.

“Meghan loved get­ting some prac­tice in with Brian, John and Ivy. She’s al­ways been a nat­u­ral with chil­dren. Meghan and Harry are go­ing to make great par­ents!”
