Jessica Mulroney is taking her love for BFF Meghan Markle to the ‘gram. Well, sort of.

The 38-year-old Canadian stylist shared, and then quickly deleted, a birthday message on Instagram to her royal pal who turned 37-years-old on Aug. 4.

Mulroney shared a photo of the duo from a 2016 trip to Italy with the simple message “My favorite birthday girl,” but deleted the image as of Tuesday morning.

The former actress made frequent appearances on Mulroney’s Instagram account prior to her romance with Prince Harry.  However, now that she’s the Duchess of Sussex and social media accounts are a royal faux-pas, Markle’s personal life, including her high profile friendships, are kept intensely private.

Still, Mulroney manages to walk the fine line between keeping her relationship with the royals private and staying true to her public persona.

In May of this year, after Markle and Prince Harry’s fairytale wedding, Mulroney shared a photo of the newly minted Duchess of Sussex arriving at St. George’s Chapel with twin sons, Brian and John dutifully holding the bride’s veil.
