Excuse the salacious title, I don’t hate Meghan Markle. I actually love Meghan Markle but it’s come to my attention that I’m really quite cross with her about this whole Royal fiance business and I felt compelled to explain my side.
You see, Meghan was my idol. Her hair, her style, her handbags.. I was obsessed. I watched and rewatched Suits countless times because of her and I was (am) more than a little invested in the new age Ross/Rachel Romance but I’d mention her to friends I’d be met by blank faces. How could they not know her? Didn’t they have Netflix? DAVE, at least?
Online, however I wasn’t alone. Many a pinterest board has been dedicated to Miss Zanes pencil skirts and slouchy knits, not to mention Meghans insta fans and the lifestyle community she grew through her site, The Tig.
And then she met Harry, and it all went to shit.
No More Instagram, No More Tig, No more SUITS?!?
Suddenly EVERYONE knew who she was, everyone wanted her hair, her style, her HANDBAGS, and when I commented on something I was just ‘jumping on the bandwagon’. I cared not for the Middleton excitement and I’m only vaguely interested in George because of this sartorial instagram account. I am very much not a dedicated follower of Royal fashion but that is exactly what Meghan has made of me.
We had something special and Meghan, you will always be in my heart (mostly when online shopping or trying not to bleach my hair) but you have to let me go. I’m leaving you with some of my favourite Markle moments before we say goodbye… plus possibly one last go on Suits season 1-4, BUT THEN THAT’S IT!
..I mean, I might swing by the palace on the day of the Wedding IF I’M IN TOWN but then really, it’s over.
..imagine how beautiful her babies will be
I don’t even care, I’m not interested at all
