Meghan Markle revealed that before her engagement to Prince Harry, she was warned by her British buds that the media would come down hard on her.

In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand and hear. But when I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’

Despite the fact that she didn't listen to them, her friends still attended her big wedding in 2018 and showed their support.

Her buds like Brian Kocinski, Celine Khavarani, Isabel May, Jessica Mulroney and many more graced the occasion.
