“And I’m kidding you, the one without pepperoni was a few dollars less than the one with pepperoni.

‘And yes, I’m still talking about the inflatable Pizza, float for the pool. We all had a good laugh about it.

She continued, “But all that aside, it wasn’t our day when we were wives and mothers.

“All perfectly doused with chignons, pearls and demure smiles.”

“It was the other version of the two of us with wild curly hair and bathing suits and loose laundry and huge belly laughs, big hugs with our little ones.

“And whispers of girls on the terrace, like real schoolgirls.

“We had so much fun.”

Meghan then revealed that she was talking about an event with Sophie, whom she has known for several years before joining the royal family.

Elsewhere she described how she had ‘gone to Sophie for advice’ over the years, having met ‘seven years ago’.

“Sophie had given up a career in television, where she worked as a correspondent on CTV’s eTalk, to take on a more formal role alongside her husband as he embarked on the campaign trail,” the authors claim.

“The couple quickly became friends over email, Meghan was interested to learn how Sophie managed to go from entertainment news correspondent to beloved First Lady, while deftly avoiding controversy.”

A close friend of Trudeau and former Cabinet member told Scobie and Durand: “Sophie would have made it clear that every aspect of Meghan’s past would be unearthed, so the most important thing was to be honest with Harry – tell him everything.

“Sophie is a smart woman and the perfect brain for Meghan. She knows how difficult something like this is. Few can understand or truly sympathize. For those of us who knew about their friendship, it was amazing to see the change in Meghan that followed.

Earlier that year, Meghan and Sophie were pictured in a series of photobooth images with Jessica taken at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards (CAFA) at Soho House in Toronto – where Meghan lived while filming Suits.

In January 2020, there was speculation that Justin Trudeau might have given a cryptic hint on Twitter about Meghan and Harry leaving the Royal Family.

Diplomatic sources said Mr Trudeau and his wife Sophie were consulted on the decision late last year, in front of members of the Royal Family and even the Queen.

Prince Harry and Mr Trudeau have always sought to enjoy each other’s company at events such as Commonwealth commemorations. The two have also met several times during Harry’s Invictus games for service members with disabilities.
