Meghan Markle revealed that her Suits 'sister wives' helped her out of a 'funk' on Valentine's Day in a resurfaced blog post.

Meghan Markle may be loved-up with Prince Harry this Valentine’s Day, but the American royal hasn’t always found the spring holiday the easiest of events to celebrate. 

In a February 2015 entry from her old blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex revealed how her girlfriends pulled her out of a depressing 'funk' around the romantic season. 

"I was faaaaaar from showing self-love," she wrote, recalling that she had been "bemoaning something so futile" that she couldn’t recall. 

Fortunately, Meghan had her trusted Suits ‘sister wives’, Gina Torres and Sarah Rafferty, to offer her some invaluable perspective during her downward spiral. 

"One of them stopped me," the 41-year-old continues, before sharing the "sage wisdom" of their stern order, "Hey! That’s my friend you’re talking about. Be nice to her."

Meghan, who famously starred as Rachel Zane on the NBC drama, Suits, before marrying into the Royal Family in 2019, went on explain that her friends were "protecting" her from her "own criticism" and "own self-doubt".

"They were reminding me to treat myself as well as I treat those closest to me," she added, "To be my own valentine."

Inspired by her friends’ advice, Meghan went on to reveal her exciting plans for the approaching Valentine’s Day. At the time, the TV star was embracing single life in the aftermath of her 2013 divorce from her first husband, Trevor Engelson.

"I will be with friends, running amok through the streets of New York, likely imbibing some cocktail that’s oddly pink, and jumping over icy mounds in my new shoes through the salted snowy streets of the West Village," she writes. 

The Duchess of Sussex concluded the passage by urging her readers to always practice self-love, regardless of their relationship status, penning, "Whether you have a special someone, you’ll be with friends, or you’ll be flying solo this Saturday (or any other day for that matter), be good to yourself. Love yourself, treat yourself, honor yourself, and celebrate you."
