According to the friend, she’s also making an effort to make her life more private than before.
“She’s trying to figure out how to scale back what she puts out there about her life, including her social media and her website,” says the pal of Markle, who runs her lifestyle website The Tig. “If she had to leave all that she’s doing in order for the relationship to work, she would without hesitation.”
Adds the friend, “It’s a very serious relationship and she wants a future with Harry.”
