Meghan Markle’s New Year’s Resolutions Remind Us Royals Have Bad Habits Too


If you found yourself this year re-writing the same New Year’s resolutions you had last year, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Meghan Markle admitted on her now-defunct blog — The Tig — that every year she has two resolutions that she wasn’t quite able to master the year before.

“These make my New Year’s resolution list nearly (aka actually every) single year,” she wrote on the personal blog on January 1, 2016. “The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks.” If you find it hard to believe that the now fiancée of Prince Harry sometimes slips up with a curse word every now and then — don’t. In fact, Meghan has reminded the world over and over again that she’s just a regular girl.

“And when it comes to the biting of the nails — well, it still happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day,” she continued. “It’s unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit.”

And though Queen Elizabeth might not approve of such language or nervous behavior, the 36-year-old actress also included a slew of inspirational resolutions as well. “For this new year, the only thing I aim to do is to approach life playfully,” she added. “To laugh and enjoy, [and] to keep my standards high but my level of self-acceptance higher. My New Year’s resolution is to leave room for magic.”

We love that — what a wonderful message to send to her readers! She concluded writing, “To make my plans, and be okay if they sometimes break. To set my goals, but to be open to change. To let the magic know that there is an open door policy with me in 2016 and that it is always welcome to join the party. I invite you to do the same. Have a beautiful, blissful, and incredibly magical 2016. So grateful to be with you on the ride.”
