Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney claims she faces daily harassment on social media

MEGHAN Markle's best friend Jesscia Mulroney has claimed she receives cruel messages from trolls everyday on Instagram.

Earlier this week, the mum-of-three shared a screenshot of a message she received from a follower telling her she "looked super old".

The person had responded to a picture Jessica had posted on her Instagram stories taking about her earrings with a bizarre back-handed compliment.

They wrote: "Pretty! But you look super old in this pic – still beautiful though."

Understandably upset by the message, Jessica shared the person's comments with her 373,000 followers and wrote: "I get messages everyday like this (and this is the mildest message I could find.

"I'm not asking for pity because they don't hurt me but they hurt so many.

"Social media is not going away. It is a business tool, it can be an incredible place to find strength but it can be dark."

Meghan's best friend – who reportedly babysat Archie while his parents were in the UK – then revealed that she is "organising a conference on how to handle social media as a positive platform".

Although Jesscia's post was live on her Instagram page for seven hours, it has since been deleted.

But this isn't the first time Jessica has opened up about trolling.

As well as being criticised for her style, Jessica revealed she'd been targeted by trolls for sharing photos of herself in bikinis last November.

The Duchess' pal posted an image of herself in a swimming costume while on holiday in the Cayman Islands last year.

But days later, she penned another post in response to trolls: "Note to self. Never ever post another picture of myself in a bathing suit. Only wear parkas by the beach.

"Apparently a picture in a bathing suit is offensive to my career, some followers, the charities I work with and my children. But guess what… I don't care.

"Thank you to my supportive followers who stand up to body shaming. Everyone else, get a clue."

The star is married to Canadian TV host Ben Mulroney and styles the country's First Lady Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau.

Jessica's three children were also included in Meghan Markle's wedding party and the stylist flew to the UK with her daughter Ivy to meet baby Archie shortly after he was born in May 2019.

In more celebrity news, Stacey Solomon took inspiration from Mrs Hinch with her new cupboard organisation hack – and all you need are magnets.

And The Queen has a secret passage hidden behind a mirror in Buckingham Palace so she can "make an entrance".

Plus Prince Harry "felt constrained" in the Royal Family and wants Archie to "grow up away from the pomp and royalty".
