Prior to her engagement to Prince Harry, the then Meghan Markle as most fans know was a lifestyle blogger besides starring on Suits.
The Tig, her blog which was described as a “hub for the discerning palate — those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion [and] beauty,” was her passion and quite popular before her engagement put the kibosh on her social media and online presence.
“Tig” is short for the name of HRH’s favourite Italian red wine, Tignanello. And no the blog was not focussed on wine if one never had the chance to read it. She equated the first sip of the wine like Oprah’s ‘aha’ moment. Things became ‘Tig’ moments if you will.
According to Meghan: “Suddenly I understood what people meant by the body, legs, structure of the wine,” she wrote. “From that point on, any new awareness, any new discovery or ‘ohhhhh, I get it!’ moment was a ‘Tig’ moment.”
Fans of then Meghan Markle were sad to see the blog close up shop but knew she was embarking on a new adventure: marrying Prince Harry!
Never fear fans of The Duchess of Sussex! The Tig is still alive. Well sort of.
