You’d expect Meghan Markle’s New Year’s resolutions for 2018 to look something like this:
- Be royalty
- Learn names of Queen’s dogs
- Teach George swear word when no one is looking
But according to her blog The Tig, which has since been shut down, Meghan Markle doesn’t do New Year’s resolutions.
And not because she’s already perfect and engaged to Prince Harry. Not because of that.
But because every single year she’d make exactly the same ones, and fail at them. It’s an experience she wrote about in January 2016.

“Run a marathon. Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Re-learn French. These make my New Year’s resolution list nearly (AKA actually every) single year,” the then-34-year-old wrote.
“The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks,” she added. “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. I have put my little Rosetta Stone headset in my eager ears every year, resolving to do interviews en français, but much to my chagrin, it hasn’t stuck.”
“And when it comes to the biting of the nails – well, it still happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day. It’s unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit.”
