Meghan Markle Did NOT Shut Down Website Because Of Queen Elizabeth, Despite Report
Meghan Markle did not shut down her website The Tig because of Queen Elizabeth. That’s the claim from a tabloid that’s been caught manufacturing a fake news story. Gossip Cop has the actual facts.
OK! is busted again for making up another royal lie. This time the often discredited magazine alleges Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend shuttered her lifestyle blog “after the queen complains.” Exposing its sloppiness, the tabloid writes, “Insiders claimed that her future mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth was never a fan of her ‘cheap and common’ social media exposure.”
Gossip Cop would like to know who these “insiders” are because they don’t know anything about the royals. Queen Elizabeth could never be Markle’s “future mother-in-law.” That would have been Princess Diana. Queen Elizabeth is Prince Harry’s grandmother.
Basically, the entire OK! story is fake news. Sadly, printing falsehoods about Prince Harry and those around him has become a cottage industry for that tabloid. In 2015, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it ran a cover story exclaiming that Prince Harry was engaged to Cressida Bonas. It similarly published a made-up cover alleging Prince Harry and Markle were engaged. None of those claims or many others, including tales about the redheaded royal moving to America or “secretly dating Pippa Middleton were true.
As Gossip Cop previously noted, Markle closed The Tig because blogging is extremely time consuming, and she’s already very busy. Currently, the actress is juggling a starring role on the TV series “Suits,” working tirelessly for a number of her philanthropic endeavors, and dating long distance. All of that combined made it unfeasible for her to run a site that required constant posting.
