Meghan Markle's BFF speaks out after royal news with cryptic message

Following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's announcement that they will be withdrawing from royal duties, one of Meghan's best friends has broken her silence on the issue with a cryptic Instagram post.

In a statement posted on their official Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote:

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."

They continued: "It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.

They added: "This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.

"We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support."

Now, with rumors flying about the reason for this dramatic shift, Meghan Markle's Jessica Mulroney has uploaded an intriguing Instagram post which seems to reference the Duchess' decision. Without a caption, Mulroney uploaded a picture of a quote which read simply: "A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink."

Recently, Meghan admitted that she was finding juggling motherhood and royal duties 'tough' in an interview: 

Not only this but now a number of high-profile figures have publically expressed their own thoughts on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision.
