Suits actress Meghan Markle has prompted speculation that Prince Harry might soon be popping the big question, by shutting down her lifestyle website, The Tig.
But how are the two things connected, we hear you ask? Well, according to The Telegraph, the move has promoted fans to speculate that the actress is prepared to take things to the next level with the Prince, giving up her blog in order to focus on the relationship and perhaps, royal duties. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge also gave up her job, as an accessories buyer at Jigsaw, ahead of her engagement to Prince William in 2011.
In a farewell message on the site, written alongside a series of pictures, Meghan announced the news, writing, “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.”
She added, “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.”
The actress also posted to Instagram, in a post garnering over 13,000, to thank “supporters of The Tig”, and to say “I will always be grateful for your support”.
The actress is due to begin filming the seventh season of her legal drama Suits this month, but there have been rumours aplenty that this season will be Meghan’s last, and that she’ll then quit acting in order to move to the UK to be with Harry.
And, according to the Daily Mail, the pair are also preparing to head to Southern Africa in October, in a trip that will take in many of the Prince’s charitable projects. The visit will apparently take place as soon as Meghan finishes filming Suits.
The Daily Mail writes, “The visit will take in Harry’s Lesotho charity projects, an important part of his life for the past decade, which should reassure Meghan, 35, that the Prince wants to share his passions with her.”
