A self-confessed "sucker" for V-Day, Meghan Markle's Valentine's Day wishlist is just as relevant today as it was when she posted it on her lifestyle blog The Tig.
Before she became the Duchess of Sussex, the Suits actress regularly shared her favorite recipes, fashion labels and beauty products on the site. Even though she closed The Tig after joining the Royal Family, some articles are still accessible to the public. Among them, this one where Markle gushes:
"Without fail, every February 14th, I wake up feeling like I'm immersed in a Robert Doisneau photo, waiting with bated breath to be dipped into a kiss. This is all happening in black and white, of course. And in Paris, if I had my way. But delusions of francophile grandeur aside, Valentine's Day is special wherever you happen to find yourself. And in terms of gifts, be it breakfast in bed, a sweet love note, or a single flower (because we can't always get our hands on Taylor Tomassi Hill bouquets), it really is the thought that counts.

Included is a camellia cleansing oil, rice-based exfoliator, essence, eye cream and cult moisturizer The Water Cream.
