Sharing a snap of the pink roses on her Instagram story, Jessica wrote: “Luckiest friend, thx MM.”
The post was then shared by a Duchess of Sussex fan account on Instagram, which appeared to confirm they had been sent by Meghan.
It comes after the Canadian stylist praised Meg’s “kindness, empathy and love” following claims that the Duchess had “bullied” staff members.
Jessica, 41, who met the Duchess of Sussex while filming Suits in Toronto, posted a photo of her and Meghan – both dressed in white – at a restaurant, with the caption: “I don’t know that anyone has ever had to deal with the pressure, the politics and the press like this woman.

What happened between Jessica Mulroney and Sasha Exeter?
The row between Jessica and Sasha is said to have ignited when the mum-of-one shared a call to arms online for bloggers and influencers to use their platforms to advance the Black Lives Matter movement.
Toronto-based Sasha said she was surprised by the fashion stylist’s perceived silence on the issue considering Meghan is “arguably one of the most famous black women in the world.”
Jessica then responded by saying she “had spoken to companies” about the way the influencer had “unfairly” treated her – a remark which Sasha’s saw as a “threat” to her livelihood.
Following a public apology from Jessica, Sasha has claimed the TV personality threatened her “behind closed doors” with a lawsuit.
Jessica wrote: “I am unequivocally sorry for not doing that with you, and for any hurt I caused.
“As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and centre.
“It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that.”I promise to continue to learn and listen on how I can use my privilege to elevate and support black voices.”
But Sasha shared a screenshot of a private message from the stylist, which read: “Liable suit. Good luck,” misspelling the word libel.
Sasha added: “I don’t know what’s worse here – her using her perceived power to try and threaten my livelihood or using her resources to basically shut me up.
“But whatever the case she’s not going to shut me up.”
Jessica was dropped from her job on bridal show ‘I Do, Redo’ with bosses at Canada’s CTV saying her comments clashed with their “commitment to diversity and equality.”
And she also lost her slot as a guest fashion expert on Cityline and ABC’s Good Morning America.
Jessica stepped from social media for a while, with the Mail reporting Meghan was ‘mortified’, but the pair remained close.
“In the face of it all, I have never seen her waver from kindness, empathy and love.”
Last year, the two friends were said to have fallen out after a racism row in June.
Meghan’s pal was fired from two TV jobs following a row with Sasha Exeter who accused Jessica of using her “wealth and privilege” to shut her up.
Jessica apologised for her behaviour amid an outcry as followers branded her a “bully” and a “racist”.
She also denied any falling out between her and Meghan and said her friend was like “family” in an Instagram post that was later deleted.
