Meghan Markle’s pal Jessica Mulroney wades into royal ‘feud’ over charity claims

Meghan Markle's pal Jessica Mulroney has waded into the royal "feud" after it was claimed she was helping to set up international charities on behalf of the Duke and Duchess.

The fashion stylist, 40, who was Meghan's maid of honour at her 2018 wedding, took to Twitter to clear things up after it was reported Mulroney's own charity registered a website known as 'sussexglobalcharities' last week.

But she made it clear that it was a firm called the Shoebox Foundation Project, which is registered in the US state of North Carolina, that carried out the registration.

This company, said Mulroney, "has no affiliations or ties" to her own charity, The Shoebox project.

It comes after Prince Harry and Meghan were told by the Queen they could no longer use the word "royal" as part of their branding abroad.

Buckingham Palace released a statement to this effect, which was followed up by a tense "update" on the couple's own website where they appeared to take aim at the Queen and other senior members of the Royal Family.

Harry and Meghan claimed Her Majesty has no "jurisdiction" over the word 'royal', but admitted they would stop using it – this is despite investing in a website and submitting trademark requests.

In what seemed to be a swipe at other royals, their statement said: "The trademark applications that had been filed as protective measures, and that reflected the same standard trademarking requests as done for The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been removed.

"While there is precedent for other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution, for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a 12-month review period has been put in place."

Meghan and Harry will soon travel back to England for their final official round of Royal engagements later this month.

Buckingham Palace released a loose itinerary for the pair earlier this week.

The tour will begin on February 28 with an appearance from Prince Harry with rockstar Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir.

Harry will then attend the endeavour fund awards, join Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone and attend the Mountbatten Music festival with Meghan.
