Palace Refutes Claims That Meghan Markle Plans To Relaunch Lifestyle Website ‘The Tig’

The palace says Meghan Markle has no plans to relaunch The Tig, despite reports.

Rumours began to swirl after the Duchess of Sussex’s business manager, Andrew Meyer, filed documents in the United States for Markle to keep the rights to The Tig until 2021.

A palace spokesperson told People magazine that there are “absolutely no plans to relaunch The Tig.”

Adding, “The lasting trademark is to prevent false branding, to avoid others purporting to be the Duchess or affiliated with her.”

A website called TigTots was also trademarked, leaving many to speculate the new mom was planning a kid-based spin-off.

Markle launched The Tig in 2014 but in 2017 she shut it down as her relationship with now-husband Prince Harry developed. She also closed her personal Instagram page at the same time.

“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig,” she wrote at the time. “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.”
