Meghan Markle is closing one chapter in her life. Prince Harry’s girlfriend announced on Friday, April 7 that she is shutting down her lifestyle website The Tig. The Suits star penned a formal letter on her site announcing the news. “To all my Tig friends,” she began. “After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it's time to say goodbye to The Tig."
"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,” Meghan continued. “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.”
The lifestyle site, whose name was admittedly Meghan's nickname for her "getting it," was “a hub for the discerning palate - those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion & beauty.” On her Instagram account, the Hollywood star thanked her followers and contributors for their support, sharing a collage of various faces, which she captioned: “Thank you to all the supporters of The Tig! From followers to contributors, you have become friends. It is YOU who have made this Tig community so special. And even though I haven't met most of you, for three years I've seen your faces and read your comments and hugged you from afar.”
According to the Tig’s official Instagram, Meghan passed the site’s “baton” to her “dear friend,” actress Janina Gavankar, who manages the site altFound.com. Along with the announcement, the Tig posted a farewell image for their editor-in-chief that read: “Goodbye are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you, until we meet again!” Meghan is currently back on set in Toronto filming season seven of her popular USA Network show Suits. The Hollywood star and British royal began dating last summer and have since taken their love to Jamaica, Norway and around the streets of London.
