Liza Minnelli Denies Friendship With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
Legendary star Liza Minelli set the record straight about her friendship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and said in no uncertain terms that it is "a complete fabrication."
On Monday, the 74-year-old Cabaret star took to social media with the goal of denying information published by The Sun on June 13.
A BIG NO FROM LIZA
According to the publication, Minelli helped Prince Harry "find his feet" after he arrived in Los Angeles with his wife Meghan Markle and their 1-year-old son Archie. The report also stated that Minelli decided to reach out because she had been friends with his late mom, Princess Diana.
"While I wish them well, I have never met Prince Harry and Meghan. Any statement to the contrary is a complete fabrication," Liza wrote.
Meghan Markle has a strong support system in Los Angeles with her mom Doria Ragland and various friends closeby, so the couple has several people to reach out to if needed.
HELP CLOSE AT HAND
From her days on "Suits," Meghan became good friends with her co-star Abigail Spencer. The royal couple also counts George and Amal Clooney, the tennis star Serena Williams, Oprah, and Tyler Perry, whose house they are currently staying in, as friends.
Prince Harry's mom, the late Princess Diana, also had several famous friends besides Liza Minelli, whom she first met backstage after a London concert.
PRINCESS DIANA'S MANY CELEBRITY FRIENDS
While speaking about her friendship with Princess Diana during a previous interview, she described how they would talk about "everything under the sun" while enjoying tea, and counts herself as "lucky" to have been able to count the late princess as a friend.
Princess Diana's friendship with the legendary singer Elton John became well-documented, as did her closeness to celebrities like Freddie Mercury, Julia Samuel, Hillary Clinton - who first met her in 1997, George Michael, and Michael Jackson who reportedly said he was "in love" with the princess after meeting her in 1988.
THE MOVE MADE THEM STRONGER
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started building their new lives after officially exiting royal life on March 31. The couple still lived in Canada at the time, and they relocated to sunny Los Angeles not long after.
Now that the couple is financially independent of the royal family and with all that pressure behind them, Meghan and Prince Harry's relationship is reportedly stronger than ever.
The couple took time after stepping down as senior members of the royal family to spend quality time with their infant son, and that only strengthened them as a couple.
