As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship inches toward engagement, we're taking a look at the couple's inner-circle. Here's everything you need to know about Markle's best friend and closest confidant, Jessica Mulroney.

SHE'S A FASHION STYLIST.

Mulroney is perhaps best known for dressing Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, but the 36-year-old has had a long career in public relations and fashion design. She is also the co-founder of the Shoebox Project, a non-profit organization which collects and distributes personal items for women in crisis. And while she's not officially dressing Markle, we'd hardly be surprised to find out they'd gone shopping together.

SHE'S MARRIED TO BEN MULRONEY, SON OF FORMER CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER BRIAN MULRONEY.

They have three children together, who make frequent appearances on her Instagram account.

SHE AND MARKLE MET YEARS AGO.

The two became close when Markle relocated to Canada for her show Suits, bonding over a love of yoga, reports Harpers Bazaar UK. The pair quickly became friends, even taking vacations together, as evidenced by Instagram shots like these:

THE MULRONEYS HAVE REPORTEDLY HOSTED DISCREET DINNER PARTIES FOR MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY IN TORONTO.

"Harry has become close with all of Meghan's closest friends," a source told E! News.

"When Harry first started going to Toronto to visit Meghan, it was Ben and Jessica who had them over at their house for dinners because it wasn't easy for them to go out in public without the risk of getting spotted," the source added.

"Harry's become close with their children Brian, John, and Ivy. Ivy especially is a big fan. She, of course, has no idea that he's a prince though—he's just auntie Meghan's special friend Harry, who sometimes comes over with fun presents!"

AND MULRONEY WAS WITH MARKLE AT THE INVICTUS GAMES CLOSING CEREMONY.

When all eyes were on Markle at the Invictus Games in September, she had a few of her closest friends by her side. At the opening ceremony, the first time she had accompanied Prince Harry to an official royal appearance, she was seated with Markus Anderson, who reportedly introduced the happy couple. At the closing ceremony, she was seen in a private box alongside her mother, Doria Radland, and BFF Mulroney.

IF MARKLE DOES GET ENGAGED, MULRONEY WILL BE A HUGE HELP.

She's something of an expert on weddings, and regularly works with brides-to-be on styling their big day.
