Meghan Markle paves way for return of lifestyle blog providing personal life updates | royal | News

Before the Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry, she ran ‘The Tig’. Meghan reportedly wants to revive it and has re-applied for the trademark for the title.

Express.es checked the US Patent and Trademark Office and found a live trademark filing for ‘The Tig’.

The trademark is listed as 1B on “current basis”, which means that the owner has “a good faith intention to use his mark in the trade of his products and/or services in the near future”, and was filed on 25 February 2022.

The same logo used on the Duchess’s former blog is listed on the US website and is spelled out as follows: “Providing a website with non-downloadable articles, interviews, photographs and commentary in the field of food, cooking, recipes, travel, relationships, fashion, style, lifestyle, the arts, culture, design, conscious living, and health and wellness.”

The registered attorney was Marjorie Witter Norman, who handled Meghan’s previous trademark registrations.

The Mail on Sunday reported that Markle’s lawyer, Majorie Witter Norman, had filed a new trademark application for ‘The Tig’ in July 2021.

The request was made through Frim Fram Inc, a Delaware-based holding company, which has ties to the Duchess’s business manager, Andrew Meyer.

Royal author Tina Brown wrote in her book ‘The Palace Papers’ that Meghan was “often still on set at 4AM” after filming ‘Suits’ updating her blog.

She said: “She spent downtime furiously updating The Tig, which she was convinced, not without reason, could emulate the success of Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s sly second-act creation of a pampering and wellness e-commerce site, with his $550 healing quartz necklaces.

“‘Meghan was always talking about Goop,’ one of the Suits crew told me.”

In October 2021, royal commentator Neil Sean said he was told the pair thought it was a “good time” to reboot The Tig.

On his YouTube channel, he said: “According to a very good source, it seems that Meghan, along with Harry, think this would be a very good time to reboot The Tig.

“This was something that Meghan and Harry simply couldn’t do as part of the British monarchy.

“But her close advisers believe she could easily outshine the successful Gwyneth Paltrow.”

It comes after Netflix canceled Meghan’s ‘Pearl’ series due to budget cuts on Monday.

It was being created under Meghan and Harry’s Archewell Productions entertainment company, with Meghan, 40, scheduled to take on the role of “creator and executive producer”.

‘Pearl’ was presented as an animated series documenting the adventures of a 12-year-old girl and how she overcomes ‘daily challenges’.

However, Netflix has confirmed that it will continue to work on a number of projects with Archewell Productions, including a documentary series called ‘Heart of Invictus’.

The series will focus on athletes competing in the Invictus Games for injured veterans, an event founded by Prince Harry, in The Hague in 2022.

In April, it was reported that Meghan was looking to trademark the word ‘archetypes’ for her first podcast series.

Archewell Audio, one of several companies founded by Meghan and Harry, filed the application with the US Patent and Trademark Office last month.

Archewell’s application says the word would cover a long list of entertainment services “in the fields of cultural treatment of women and stereotypes faced by women.”
