Meghan Markle’s BFF Misha Nonoo has confessed to ‘massively missing her friends’ while quarantined in New York with her four-month-old son Leo.

The British-Bahraini fashion designer, known for her eponymous clothing line, revealed that she ‘needs her girlfriends to have a laugh with and make light of things’ when speaking to People magazine.

Misha, who is rumoured to have introduced Meghan, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, and her oil heir husband Mikey Hess, 33, announced the birth of their first child Leo in March. 

The first time mother has since been making an effort to connect with friends virtually, with New York’s lockdown only having eased last month.

‘It’s very stressful not having your normal life to return to — I knew having a baby would change my life, but I never expected this,’ she told the publication.

‘I’ve massively missed seeing my friends. As soon as Leo was born we would have been in the store and seeing friends and been to London by now and, obviously, all of those plans are on hold,’ the designer added.

Visitors from America wishing to travel to the UK currently need to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival.

In the meantime, the fashion designer has been taking advantage of FaceTime, but admits ‘it’s not the same’.

‘Being a new mum, you need a support network, and I definitely miss having in-person time with my new baby and my friends,’ she explained.

‘I miss having my girlfriends to have a laugh with and make light of things. This is a challenging and stressful and discombobulating time, but we have to look forward to the time when we can all be together.’

However, Misha said she has ‘really enjoyed’ the family time she’s been able to have, since her husband would’ve been travelling for work under normal circumstances. 

During her pregnancy, Misha told People, that the Duchess of Sussex had been sharing her advice about becoming a first-time mother. 

The designer revealed: ‘As with all friendships, you share lots of tips and everything.’

Her baby announcement came less than a year after close friend Meghan gave birth to baby Archie in May 2019.

Misha married her husband Mikey in a ceremony in Rome in September that was attended by Prince Harry, Meghan, Princess Eugenie, 29, and Princess Beatrice, 31 before announcing her pregnancy at the end of the year.  

The fashion designer is believed to have been close to Meghan for many years, with the Duchess continuing to support her friend by wearing Misha Nonoo styles over the years.

Meghan donned the famous ‘Boyfriend shirt’ for her first appearance alongside Prince Harry, and also wore another of Misha’s designs for her final day of meetings in the UK before stepping back from royal duties. 

Misha, who worked with the Duchess on her Smart Works charity clothing line, opened up to FEMAIL earlier this year about her friendship with the royal.

Reflecting on the experience of working together, Misha described Meghan as ‘the ultimate professional’ and very ‘considerate’ of the women the collection was helping.

‘It was such an ideal, incredibly easy collaboration,’ she said. ‘It was, from start to finish, wonderful, thoughtful, considerate, as is she.’
