Put your blogging hat back on? Megan Markle appears to be preparing to relaunch The Tig after it closed in 2017.
The site could be back online very soon, according to documents obtained by Us weekly on Tuesday March 14th.

The February document indicated that the revived site would feature articles, interviews and photos on a variety of topics. The pieces fall into categories such as: “Recipes, Travel, Relationships, Fashion, Style, Interior Design, Lifestyle, Art, Culture, Design, Conscious Living, Health and Wellness”.
While Meghan’s name was not specifically listed in the filing, the logo that is part of the trademark application matches her blog’s original design.
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, first launched The Tig in 2014, which focused on her life, community service, travel and general love of food. In fact, the site’s name was derived from “Tignanello,” a specific wine that allowed Meghan to “get” wine and understand other people’s love for the drink.
The abbreviation ‘Tig’ has been attributed to the sudden sense of understanding, and the Duchess previously described her website as a place dedicated to ‘those Tig moments of discovery’.
However, if the suits Alum started dating Prince Harry In 2016, her lifestyle blog fell by the wayside. Ahead of her engagement, Meghan announced in April 2017 that she was shutting down the site.
“After almost three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig. What started as a passion project (my little engine that could) grew into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity,” she wrote in the farewell message to her readers. “You brightened my days and filled this experience with so much joy.

Meghan raised eyebrows when she renewed the brand for The Tig in September 2019, despite being a working senior royal. At the time, Buckingham Palace released a statement explaining that the California native, who married 38-year-old Harry in May 2018, would not return to blogging.
“There are absolutely no plans to restart The Tig,” said a Palace spokesman Us in Fall 2019. “The enduring hallmark is to discourage false branding to avoid others pretending to be or be associated with the Duchess.”
When the couple stepped down as senior royals in early 2020 and later relocated to the United States, rumors once again circulated on Meghan’s blog. Shortly after the pair hired Made by Article – who had worked on The Tig – to design their official website, a royal expert predicted the retired actress would one day revitalize her blog.
“I think she’s going to do a goop, like a new version of The Tig … I really think that’s coming,” Expert Myka Meier told the podcast Royally Obsessed in May 2020.
