Williams tied the knot on December 29, 2016, with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Her own nuptials was described as a fairytale wedding, and Williams had some preparation advice for Markle. 

She wants Markle to cherish the preparation and the planning because even if it is tedious and riddled with obstacles, it will be over before she realizes. 

Before Markle began dating her Prince, she managed a successful lifestyle blog called The Tig. She deleted the website when her Royal relationship status became public knowledge.
