by Ainhoa Barcelona

Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle has announced that she is closing her blog after three years of writing. The editor of The Tig, a lifestyle website that is described as "a hub for the discerning palate - those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion & beauty," gave little explanation for her decision.

She simply posted a farewell message alongside a collage of photos, writing: "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."

The Suits actress, 35, used her blog to write about a range of topics, from food and travel, to beauty and fashion. In the 'About' section, Meghan explained that she came up with the unusual name of the website through her mispronunciation of a wine called Tignanello.

"So there I am, with very minimal wine knowledge and I take a sip of this wine," she wrote. "It wasn't just red or white – suddenly I understood what people meant by the body, legs, structure of wine. It was an ah-ha moment at its finest. For me, it became a 'Tig' moment – a moment of getting it. From that point on, any new awareness, any new discovery or 'ohhhhh, I get it!' moment was a 'Tig' moment."
