On Tuesday, Meghan Markle, fiance of Prince Harry, deleted all of her social media accounts.
Everyone who was hoping to catch some private royal moments was crestfallen. This comes on the heels of her discontinuing her website, The Tig, in April of 2017, when rumors that she was dating Prince Harry first began to spread. In a letter to her fans about the discontinuation of the site, she said,
"To all my Tig friends,
After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it's time to say goodbye to The Tig. 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. 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.
Thank you for everything.
Xx Meghan Markle"
