Meghan Markle’s best friend posted a very cryptic message on Instagram amid a backlash over the pregnant royal’s lavish baby shower.
Jessica Mulroney, a Canadian stylist and a guest at the Duchess of Sussex’s New York bash, shared an inspirational quote that could be a nod to her heavily criticised pal.
The quote by author Tyler Knott was posted on Thursday morning, and said: "It’s exhausting being strong, let no one tell you otherwise.
"There are a million ways to heal, every single one will wear you down.
"Keep your capacity for joy. Guard it with the rest of your life."
The message was posted without any context, apart from Jessica captioning the image: "Guard your joy."
It was uploaded just hours after Meghan’s extravagant baby shower, which is estimated to have cost around £383,000.
The duchess reportedly got a £98,500 private jet flight for free after friend Amal Clooney paid for the trip home.
It is said tennis champ Serena Williams footed the bill for the expensive suit they shared at The Mark Hotel, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
The Mail reports her penthouse suite would have cost £114,000 for five nights and claims the group also splashed out for another one-bedroom suite.
The mum-to-be and five of her pals dined at Ralph Lauren’s The Polo Bar, where it has estimated their bill would have been approximately £390.
According to the Mail, other costs include Lunch at The Surrey – approx. £59, Harp player Erin Hill – £480, Lady Fleur NYC roses at £305 and 17 Away carry-on suitcases which were given to guests costing a total of £2,980.
Meghan’s two royal protection officers would have cost around £10,800.
Numerous big names attended the Upper East Side do, and the celebration was hosted by Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney and Genevieve Hillis, who has been Meghan’s best pal since they were 17.
Other guests to attend included Amal Clooney and her Suits co-star Abigail Spencer.
Meghan’s trip to New York came just days after five unnamed close friends of the duchess spoke to the publication People in an effort to counter the "global bullying" directed at her.
One friend challenged comments made by her dad Thomas Markle, telling the magazine: "He’s never called; he’s never texted. It’s super-painful."
Mr Markle dismissed the claims and responded by revealing a deeply personal letter he received from Meghan following the wedding.
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the break in New York.
