The one thing Meghan can’t do
Meghan Markle has trouble keeping any New Year resolution she tries to make.
In a previous post on her now defunct blog, The Tig, Markle talked about her New Year’s resolutions in January 2016.
On the blog, she previously wrote that she had several resolutions in mind including marathon running, and to stop biting her nails.Meghan’s first event: the verdict
She was ambitious. She also wanted to try and stop swearing — and pick up the language of love again, French.
“Run a marathon,” she wrote.
“Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Re-learn French. These make my New Year’s resolutions list nearly (AKA actually every) single year.James Franco skips Critics' Choice Awards amid sexual misconduct allegations
“The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mightily cheeking after a couple of drinks.
“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.”
Markle, 36, who is engaged to marry Prince Harry says she cannot keep one of these. She also bites her nails “with a turbulent flight or a stressful day”.Indonesia's ex-parliament speaker indicted
“It’s unladylike. But then again, so is swearing. Dammit,” she wrote.
The news comes after Markle’s family members came out attacking Prince Harry’s claims that his family “are the family she never had”.
Markle’s half sister, Smanatha Grant, and her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr, both publicly denied the claim, saying Meghan had a good upbringing.Harry ‘taps William to be best man’
Markle broke royal protocol after she stepped out with the rest of the Royal Family for their traditional Christmas morning church service at Sandringham this year.
She then joined the Queen and the family for lunch.

“We had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running round with the kids. Christmas was fantastic.”
“She’s done an absolutely amazing job, she’s getting there and it’s the family that, I suppose, she’s never had.”
Grant has responded, saying: “Actually she [Meghan] has a large family who were always there with her and for her.The untold truth of Jane Fonda
“Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses.
“No one was estranged, she was just too busy.

“She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was!”
Markle’s half-brother said her father would have been “extremely hurt” by the comments Harry made.
He told the Mail Online: ““It was just a little shocking because Meghan had an amazing, amazing childhood growing up and she had a lot of family. Especially at Christmas and the holidays, she had Christmas at my house, Christmas at her mom’s house, my dad’s house.”Things you didn't know about Kate Middleton
