Meghan Markle might share two children—Archie (2) and Lilibet (8 months)—with her husband, Prince Harry. But that doesn’t mean she’s never lived the single-girl life.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, a thoughtful post from the duchess’s now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, has resurfaced. Spoiler alert: It has nothing to do with date night or flowers or chocolate.
In the column (which was written back in 2015, before she started dating Prince Harry), Markle shared advice for single ladies, claiming that a solo Valentine’s Day isn’t something to be ashamed of.
According to People, the Duchess of Sussex wrote, “I think you need to be your own Valentine.” Preach. The admitted “sucker for Valentine’s Day” went on to credit her former Suits co-stars, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, for teaching her that lesson. (FYI, Markle played Rachel Zane in the USA series.)
