Meghan Markle is 'finding it hard to know who to trust' after she married Prince Harry
Ever since her dreamy wedding, Meghan Markle has maintained a small group of friends that she keeps on speed dial
Days before Meghan Markle returned to the spotlight after taking time off in the summer, it was reported that the Duchess of Sussex had taken a very hush-hush trip to Toronto, Canada to meet her best friend Jessica Mulroney. Meghan flew commercial to see her stylist best friend and spend some time with her family.
Although it has only been four months since Meghan married Prince Harry in what can be termed as a big, dreamy wedding ceremony, the Duchess has maintained a small group of friends that she keeps on speed dial, reports People Magazine.
“Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough,” a source told the publication this week. “She’s finding it hard to know who to trust.”
The last few months have been quite tough for the newly minted Duchess and, behind the scenes, Meghan is trying her very best to contain the family drama that has plagued her ever since she first announced her engagement to Prince Harry. “It was very wearing on her. It’s her private life,” says a source.
Harry and Meghan have reportedly been spending quite a lot of time with Harry’s father Prince Charles who was kind enough to host the newlyweds at the remote Castle of Mey in Scotland during the summer this year.
Meanwhile, Meghan has gone back to focusing on her duties as a member of the royal family, which includes all her charity work as well as her first major international tour Down Under alongside Harry next month. “The tour is going to be her chance to shine,” says Ingrid Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, 'My Husband and I'. “She knows she’ll be center stage, and everyone is going to want to meet her. It is her biggest part yet. I’m absolutely confident she will be very, very good.”
As for Meghan's family drama, it was recently reported that her father Thomas Markle believes that he's become a kidnap target for criminals in Mexico, thanks to his ongoing feud with his daughter and the royal family. He is reportedly leading a peripatetic life and is often seen checking in and out of multiple motels.
Thomas Markle is believed to be battling with anxieties over the dangers that his new high profile may have turned him into an easy target for criminals. A friend of the Duchess' father said, "Thomas is a heart patient who is supposed to be trying to create a stress-free environment for himself. The truth is, however, he’s in an almost constant state of anxiety and has been leading a semi-nomadic existence."
