MEGHAN MARKLE announced this weekend that she is calling time on her lifestyle website, The Tig, after nearly three years.
“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig,” she wrote on the website. “What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being “the change you wish to see in the world. Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything.”
Markle didn’t go into reasons why she has decided to shutter the online platform, which was “dedicated to the love of travel, food, fashion and beauty”, but speculation has inevitably settled around her relationship with Prince Harry, who she has been dating for nearly a year. There is, however, no doubt at the moment that she will continue with her humanitarian work, as well as with her role as Rachel on hit US drama Suits.
Last month the actress spoke out about the inequality she has faced while pursuing her career in Hollywood, from being mistakenly labelled on castings to having her features airbrushed in post-production. “For castings, I was labelled ‘ethnically ambiguous.’ Was I Latina? Sephardic? ‘Exotic Caucasian’?” she told Allure, adding: “Add the freckles to the mix and it created quite the conundrum.”
