Meghan Markle has gone radio silent.
Or, to be more specific to the year 2018, Meghan Markle has gone Twitter, Instagram and Facebook silent.
The question this has prompted from the public is a simple one…
The former USA Network actress surprised her social media followers on Tuesday afternoon when she deactivated all three of her aforementioned accounts.
She did so after attending her first royal engagement of the year with Prince Harry.
Moreover, this social media blackout comes about nine months after she closed her lifestyle blog, The Tig, along with its corresponding social media pages.
What is the line of thinking here?
It may be that Markle is sick of trolls harassing her about every little thing, but it also may just be due to how significant her life has already changed.
Come May 19, Markle will officially be a member of The Royal Family.
She can’t just share random photos or even inspirational messages at that point.
Those are a part of this unique clan are basically always spoken for by Kensington Palace, which does have a Twitter account and which shares such pertinent information as Markle and Harry’s wedding date.
Wrote Markle upon ending The Tig:
“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye.
“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.”
The beautiful star founded the website in 2014, with her favorite red wine inspiring its name: Tignanello.
“Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world,” Meghan wrote at the time, concluding:
“Above all, don’t ever forget your worth. As I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough.”
Since agreeing to be Mrs. Prince Harry in a few months, Markle has retired from acting and talked excitedly about her next step in life.
Not just as Harry’s wife, but as a very public figure on a mission.
Meghan has said she plans to focus her attention on charitable initiatives, even if acting will always have a place in her heart.
“I don’t see it as giving anything up. I just see it as a change,” she said in a BBC interview after announcing her engagement.
“It’s a new chapter, right? And also, keep in mind, I’ve been working on [Suits] for seven years. We were very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series…
“I’ve ticked this box, and I feel very proud of the work I’ve done there, and now it’s time to work with [Harry] as a team.”
