Jessica and Meghan are close friends and the former TV presenter's daughter Ivy, then four, was a bridesmaid at her wedding while her twin sons, Brian and John, then seven, were page boys.

Last September, Jessica spoke out about rumours that she and the Duchess were no longer friendly.

Jessica claimed that Meghan has been in touch with her daily, and the pair are still "family".

Publishing an Instagram Story to that effect, she wrote: "I'm going to tell this once and for all. Meghan and I are family."

Jessica went on: "She is the kindest friend and has checked up on me every day.

Tabloid culture is atrocious. It creates lies and hurtful storylines. Stop feeding into it. Done."

Earlier this March, following rumours that Meghan was subject of a bullying complaint during her time at Kensington Palace, Jessica shared a previously unseen photo with the Duchess. 

She wrote: "I don't know that anyone has ever had to deal with the pressure, the politics and the press like this woman. In the face of it all, I have never seen her waver from kindness, empathy and love."
