When it comes to royal wedding preparations, Meghan Markle is getting by with a little help from her friends!

ET reported earlier this year that the bride-to-be's stylist/close pal, Jessica Mulroney, flew to London to help her finalize some wedding details, including one of the most important decisions of them all -- selecting a dress designer. 

Fans of the former Suits star know that the two are BFFs, and Jessica is believed to be the one who may be standing by Meghan's side as maid of honor when she says "I do" to Prince Harry on May 19. But besides their special bond, who is Jessica, exactly? ET breaks down everything you need to know about Meghan's most fashionable friend!

1. The two first met in Canada.

Jessica, a Canadian-based stylist and independent PR and marketing consultant, first started working with Meghan while the actress relocated from her native Los Angeles to Toronto to film Suits. Meghan played Rachel Zane, a paralegal-turned-lawyer, on the legal drama from seasons one to seven, which is currently being played out on the USA Network. Season seven marks Meghan's last, as the network previously revealed she would be exiting the show to start her fabulous new life in London with Harry.

2. Jessica has helped Meghan pick out a wedding dress once before.

During the show's sixth season, Meghan's character was prepping for a wedding to Mike Ross, portrayed by Patrick J. Adams. According to a behind-the-scenes video from HELLO! Canada magazine, Jessica and Meghan actually picked out the stunning Anne Barge gown that Rachel got to wear on wedding day (though, she and Mike never actually ended up tying the knot... more on that HERE). 

3. Speaking of suits, she loves pulling them for her clients!

Jessica has also played stylist for stars like Justin Trudeau's wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and Cityline host Tracy Moore, whom she often puts in jumpsuits that make a statement and create flattering lines. Jessica is personally a fan of a good suit, and admits to having an "obsession" with the chic pieces.

4. She's a pro at all things bridal.

When it comes to weddings, Jessica's the go-to gal in Canada! She regularly helps brides-to-be say "yes" to the dress (and "#YesToTheJess") as a consultant for the Canadian outpost of Kleinfeld’s, a popular New York-based bridal boutique. 

5. She runs two fabulous Instagram accounts.

In addition to her personal account (@jessicamulroney), the fashionista also has one for "all things bridal and style" (@jessicamulroneyweddings). The account features a feed of stunning wedding gowns and footwear, bridal trends and decor to make any bride-to-be's special day picture-perfect.

6. She's reportedly put together some of Meghan's most iconic, regal looks to date.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl writes in her book, Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, that Jessica was actually one of the few friends who knew about Meghan's relationship with Harry before their secret went public. In fact, once the paparazzi discovered the actress was dating Harry, Jessica helped the two take shelter at her Toronto home.

That's why it's no surprise that Meghan and Jessica have remained close. Multiple outlets have reported that Jessica was the mastermind behind one of Meghan's chicest ensembles -- the Line the Label wrap coat, emerald green P.A.R.O.S.H. dress and  Aquazzura Matilde Crisscross Suede pumps she donned during her royal engagement photocall with Prince Harry.

7. Jessica has already said "I do."

She's married to Canadian broadcaster and TV presenter Ben Mulroney, the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. They share three kids, a daughter, Ivy, and twin sons, Brian and John.

Out of 100 tries, this was the best one. Merry Christmas to all of you! #bedheads

8. Her daughter may join Princess Charlotte as a flower girl.

A source told ET earlier this week that in addition to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Meghan and Harry may be having a few more children serve as page boys and flower girls.

Seeing as how close Meghan and Ivy seem to be (the humanitarian once taught Jessica's mini-me how to tap dance!), we wouldn't be surprised to see Ivy taking on one of those roles.

9. Just like Meghan, she loves fitness!

Meghan swears by yoga and Pilates, and Jessica is also all about working on that core. She frequently shares pics and videos, like the one below, from her intense workouts to Instagram.
