We probably can’t imagine all of the ways your life changes when you become a member of the royal family. And while Kate Middleton left behind her career to become a Duchess, it looks like Meghan Markle might be taking the same steps as her relationship with Prince Harry becomes ever more serious. With the news that The Tig creator has shut down her blog, this could be another signal that the pair (who already have an apartment under construction in Kensington Palace) are about to get engaged any day now.
After three years of bringing lifestyle tips and personal touches to her popular website, Meghan Markle sent out a message to fans today, saying, “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.’”
She ended the email with, “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. Xx Meghan Markle.” We have to wonder if this is one of the last times she’ll be signing her name as Meghan Markle as opposed to Meghan, Duchess of Somethingorother.
And while this may just seem like an ending for Markle’s side project (she *is* pretty darn busy as the star of Suits), it also could be a sign that the actress is wrapping up the loose ends of anything and everything she’ll need to leave behind when she becomes a member of the royal family. Honestly, with all of the protocol and decorum involved (did you know this is why Prince William and Kate never hold hands in public?), there’s no way she’d be able to continue a blog if (and when) she marries the prince of England and fifth in line to the throne.
The only questions we have now: Will Meghan Markle have to quit acting if/when she joins the royal family? And when will they FINALLY announce the engagement?
Do you think Meghan Markle will quit acting if she marries Prince Harry? Let us know @BritandCo!
