Meghan Markle Says She’s Had The Same New Year’s Resolutions Every Year
By WH Staff | Jan 2, 2020
In 12 months our New Year’s resolutions go from front of mind to falling by the way side, only to resurface again come the following January first.
And it turns out that Meghan Markle‘s intentions aren’t immune to a similar fate.
Back in 2016 – pre-Prince Harry romance – the then 34-year-old shared her resolutions in a blog for her former lifestyle website, The Tig.
“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,” she wrote.
The Duchess of Sussex then explained why the goals were routinely on her to-do list.
“The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks,” she wrote. “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,” she added, “It’s unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit.”
But Markle added she doesn’t mind that she hasn’t made good on these promises.
“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 wrote.
She also made a rather intriguing manifestation in the year before she met her literal Prince Charming.
“My New Year’s resolution is to leave room for magic. To make my plans, and be okay if they sometimes break. To set my goals, but to be open to change.”
