Meghan Markle has taught us many lessons over the years, but her New Year’s resolution message might be among the very cutest.
In an unarchived 2016 post from her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex opened up about the several resolutions that make her list every year.
‘Run a marathon. Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Re-learn French,’ she wrote in the post.
‘The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks. Then there’s the French – a language I studied through high school and then lost as I immersed myself in speaking Spanish with the Argentinians during my stint in Buenos Aires,’ she continued.
As for the nail biting, Markle revealed that it ‘still happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day’. ‘It’s unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit.’
In the post the now mother-of-two questioned the point of New Years’ resolutions, explaining that she often finds herself ‘wallowing in disappointment’ when she doesn’t achieve her goals.
‘This year I resolve to not have a resolution,’ she wrote, noting that if it takes a couple more years to learn French ‘that’s cool’.
‘My nails will be fine, and if I toss out a four letter word once in a blue moon, well frankly I think it adds character,’ she continued.
