Meghan Markle’s friend was forced to take down photos of the Duchess of Sussex she used to promote her jewelry.
According to The Mirror, Buckingham Palace demanded Markle’s friend, Jennifer Meyer, remove photos of the Duchess from her jewelry company’s social media accounts.
Meyer, who was once married to Tobey Maguire, runs a Los Angeles-based jewelry company named after herself. Meyer and Markle have reportedly been friends for some time.
Markle has worn Meyer’s jewelry designs several times in the past couple years. Meyer used photographs of Markle wearing the pieces and posted them on her business websites. The posts included links for people to purchase the same jewelry.
The report states Buckingham Palace was not pleased and reached out to Meyer. They demanded he remove the images of Markle immediately, believing they were damaging to Markle and the Royal Family.
A royal source told the outlet: “Jennifer Meyer has been told to remove the images and in no uncertain terms how damaging this could be for Meghan and the Royal Family.” Another source told The Sun that Meyer was in breach of a non-disclosure agreement. The Instagram posts have been removed from the Meyers’ social media accounts. Meyer has yet to comment on the matter.
