Meghan Markle keeps accumulating “friends” that you only hear about once, and that’s what we’re talking about today regarding Taryn Toomey. We’d never heard of her until a topic popped into our keyword tool.
So, who is Taryn Toomey? From what we can find, she is a “fitness influencer” at her 2018 baby shower in New York City, if the Daily Mail is correct.
This is the breakdown of the people in the photo as per The Daily Mail.
There are a few people on this breakdown picture that we don’t recognise, and Taryn Toomey was one of them. Though, we recognise the likes of Markus Anderson, Daniel Martin, Abigail Spencer, Misha Nonoo, etc.
We know also that Gayle King, Jessica Mulroney and Amal Clooney were there, but why weren’t they in this picture? Anyway, according to the HuffPost, Taryn Toomey is the CEO and Founder of the well-known workout, The Class.
The Advertisement Controversy
There was also an unknown controversy involving Taryn Toomey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. According to The Sun, in May 2019, the Sussexes were criticised for promoting The Class on their Sussex Royal Instagram account, which, at the time of the article’s publication, had over 7 million followers.
The Sussex Royal account was supposed to promote their charity work as working royals, not their friends’ businesses.
The same Sun article also points out that Taryn Toomey is married to a Financial guru and had a multimillion-dollar apartment in Manhattan, which they sold in 2017. So, why did she need Meghan and Harry to promote it? Just this fact alone tells us that it was Meghan running the Instagram account.
