Meghan Markle’s favourite winter drink combines two of everyone’s favourites - red wine and hot chocolate.

In 2014, Markle began producing content for her website called "The Tig". Whether it was taking on the role of an ‘Insider’, sharing in the thrill of walking the streets of Cartagena in South America, or gushing about her favourite sandwich spot in in New York City, she filled her website with colourful stories until 2018, just before marrying Prince Harry and becoming the Duchess of Sussex. 

Now, in place of what once was an active home page, there’s now a short and sweet farewell message. All her former posts are also no longer available.Luckily, we’ve discovered a very useful hack for how to access all her old posts.

If you’re a lover of all things royal, or simply just a lover of chocolate, this recipe from Markle’s blog is just for you.

How to make Meghan Markle’s Red Wine Hot Chocolate:


8 cups milk

500g dark chocolate
