Over the years, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has experienced various rifts in her friendships and relationships involving individuals from diverse backgrounds ranging from members of the royal family to notable actresses. Here's a glimpse into some of the significant fall-outs as Meghan's circle continues to grow smaller: 

1. Sophie Trudeau

Meghan's friendship with Sophie Trudeau, the former wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, appeared to have cooled off despite the Duchess of Sussex's previous expressions of admiration. In a November 2022 episode of her podcast 'Archetypes', Meghan revealed that she sought Sophie's advice over the years, especially during her pregnancy. However, Sophie's recent comments to The Times painted a different picture of their friendship as the retired Candian TV host stated that while she knows Meghan, they haven't spent much time together.

2. Kate Middleton

At the onset of Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry, she and Kate Middleton seemed to have a close bond. They were frequently seen alongside the royal brothers as part of "The Fab Four." Behind the scenes, Meghan and Kate's relationship seemed less than harmonious, with reports of disagreements, including a particular one during the preparations for the royal wedding in 2018. Harry's 2023 autobiography revealed personal text messages exchanged between the two over a disagreement about Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. According to the book, Kate wrote, "Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long, too baggy. She cried when she tried it on a home." When Meghan mentioned there was a tailor on standby to alter the bridesmaids' dresses, Kate's cool response left Meghan upset, and she was reportedly left "sobbing on the floor". Another part of his tell-all autobiography highlighted that his sister-in-law and Meghan initially struggled to bond due to stereotyping, which created a "bit of a barrier".

3. Jessica Mulroney

Meghan was once believed to be best friends with stylist Jessica Mulroney, with the latter's daughter serving as a flower girl at the Duchess' 2018 wedding to Prince Harry. Meghan even face-timed Mulroney just moments before Harry proposed in Kensington Gardens to share that it was finally happening. However, their friendship has cooled off in recent years, with one potential reason being Mulroney's involvement in a "white privilege" race row during the Black Lives Matter movement. An insider alleged that Meghan felt Mulroney was trying to exploit their friendship for her career, and the fallout over the race row gave her the excuse to end the friendship for good. Although Mulroney denied any rift in September 2020, there hasn't been any public interaction between them since, suggesting a possible falling out or a cooling of their friendship.

4. Millie Mackintosh

Another short-lived friendship in Meghan's past involves 'Made in Chelsea' star Millie Mackintosh. They met at a hotel event in 2015, and as Meghan began visiting the UK during the early days of her relationship with Prince Harry, they appeared to form a bond. However, the friendship didn't last. In May 2023, Mackintosh revealed feeling "snubbed" by Meghan and described the last message she received from the Duchess as "abrupt."

5. Priyanka Chopra

Before Meghan met Prince Harry, the 'Suits' actress was close friends with Priyanka Chopra. They regularly appeared on each other's social media, but the friendship has seemingly gone cold in recent years. In February 2019, it was reported that Chopra was "crushed" when Meghan didn't attend her and Nick Jonas' wedding and the 'Quantico' star was absent from the Duchess' New York baby shower.
