Meghan Markle has raised eyebrows at the Palace once again with speculation mounting that she plans to relaunch her lifestyle website, “The Tig”.
The blog is described as “a hub for the discerning palate — those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion and beauty”.
Prior to meeting Prince Harry, she ran the website for 3 years.
Now it looks like she plans to relaunch the site.
The Sun are reporting that business manager, Andrew Meyer, filed documents using a company called Frim Fram to keep rights to the name until at least 2021.
In addition to The Tig, there is also a website Tigtos, which is believed to be marketed at parents.
However, a spokeswoman for the duchess was quick to quash the speculation saying the move “is to prevent false branding, to avoid others purporting to be the Duchess or affiliated with her.”
Meghan closed the site in April 2017 with a heartfelt message to fans saying;
“To all my Tig friends
After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig. What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being “the change you wish to see in the world.”
Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough.
Thank you for everything.
