Following the backlash that she faced, Mulroney issued an apology while citing Markle as one of her closest friends. According to Hello! magazine, dragging the Duchess of Sussex into the controversy was what ultimately ended their friendship.

“As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and center. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that. I promise to continue to learn and listen on how I can use my privilege to elevate and support Black voices,” Mulroney told Sasha Exeter (via Us Weekly).

Despite all of this, Mulroney posted a throwback photo of herself on Instagram that was taken at Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding reception. The black and white snap also featured Suits star, Abigail Spencer.

Mulroney did not include a caption for her photo. But several publications said that this was her first time referencing Prince Harry and Markle’s documentary since it was released five weeks ago on Netflix. And posting a throwback photo from the couple’s royal wedding could be her way of showing the Sussexes her support.
