Meghan Markle's BFF fires back at body-shamers after comments on her bikini photo

Meghan Markle's best friend has hit back at body-shamers after she posted a bikini photo to Instagram on Monday.

Fashion stylist Jessica Mulroney, 39, made a post entirely for her haters after she was trolled over a picture of herself posing in a red bikini by the beach during a visit to the Cayman Islands.

Among the many critics was one who asked the mom-of-three: "Does silicone float easily? If so, no need for your kids to wear life jackets. The silicone on your chest should do that job just fine for them."

"Note to self," Mulroney wrote in a subsequent post on the image-sharing website. "Never ever post another picture of myself in a bathing suit. Only wear parkas by the beach."

She continued in the caption: "Apparently a picture in a bathing suit is offensive to my career, some followers, the charities I work with and of course, my children. So guess what... I don't care."

"Thank you to my strong followers who get it. Everyone else, get a clue," she continued.

However, despite the post capturing the attention of body-shamers, they were shut down by fans of the 39-year-old who encouraged her to ignore their remarks and praised her physique.

"You look fabulous. I have no doubt the haters are self-haters sitting at their computer using their 'skills' to pass judgment on the world to make themselves feel better for a second," one user wrote.

A second added: "Super 🔥 Behind every strong beautiful body is the consistent hard work it takes to maintain. Bravo Jessica. Enjoy the reward of looking fabulous. You deserve every minute."

A fan slammed the critics as "keyboard warriors" adding "It would be easy to hate you if I put in the same hard work you do but I don't, I admire you, I love your positive body image."

Meanwhile, in other Meghan Markle-related news, the Duchess and Prince Harry have announced that they will be taking a six-week holiday from Royal duties over the Christmas period for some "much-needed family time".
