Meghan Markle's best friend stands up for her

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been the subject of public scrutiny for a while now and Jessica Mulroney has had enough.

The Canadian stylist took to Instagram with a powerful post captioned, '3 years of undeserved hate and abuse. It’s enough.'

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been facing backlash for their recent use of a private plane.

Royal fans accused them of wasting money on a holiday and also adding to the carbon footprint by taking the jet.

It seems Jessica believes racism plays a role in the abuse.

She wrote, 'When someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out.'

'When that person is your friend and family, you call those critics what they truly are.'

'Shame on you, you racist bullies.'

'I’m happy to see people coming to the defense of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.'
