Meghan loves Valentine’s Day
This is a special day for Markle. She once declared on her former website, The Tig, how much she adores Valentine’s Day. “Hook, line and sinker, I am such a sucker for Valentine’s Day. Without fail, every February 14th, I wake up feeling like I’m immersed in a Robert Doisneau photo, waiting with bated breath to be dipped into a kiss. This is all happening in black and white, of course. And in Paris, if I had my way,” said Markle.

In that same article, Markle had a message for all the single folks out there. She wanted all the singles to remember that it’s still their day. You might see commercials and cards celebrating everyone who is coupled up, but Markle had this to say to anyone not in a relationship: “I think you need to cook that beautiful dinner even when it’s just you, wear your favorite outfit, buy yourself some flowers, and celebrate the self-love that often gets muddled when we focus on what we don’t have,” said Markle on her website.
