Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been establishing themselves in the U.S. since stepping down from their senior royal roles in the U.K. in 2020. As they begin the next phase of their lives, rumors have it that the Duchess of Sussex will relaunch her lifestyle blog, The Tig, as the couple eyes to be "legitimate actors of goodwill."
In a talk on Sky News Australia, writer and broadcaster Esther Krakue addressed the announcement that Meghan would relaunch The Tig after a six-year hiatus following her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018. So, what does this mean to the Sussexes' future in the U.S.?
Krauke said, via Express, that the former actress might compete with the likes of Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow. However, as the news presenter didn't see the "Suits" star as a "legitimate businesswoman in any regard, she found the move weird, considering she spent most of her adult life as an actress.
Despite that, she still found it interesting what would be the mother of two's next move. She explained that starting a lifestyle blog wasn't the "pinnacle of progressive work."
However, Krauke knew Prince Harry and Meghan were "looking for a legitimate cause," probably realizing everything they would do would be linked to the royal family and the fact they spent the last two years making allegations against them.
After dropping their Netflix docuseries "Harry and Meghan" and the prince's memoir, "Spare," hitting at King Charles III, Camilla, Queen Consort, and Prince William, the couple has faced various criticisms. From there, their popularity has sunk-not just in the U.K. but also in the U.S.
Meanwhile, The Mirror claimed Meghan had already received official preliminary approval to relaunch The Tig, which was named after her favorite wine, Tignanello. The papers filed with the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office claimed that the blog's return could see its owner becoming "an agony aunt," which would see her giving advice regarding personal relationships.
Meghan started the blog while filming "Suits" before she officially tied the knot with the Duke of Sussex. At the time, she described it as a "passion project" that became a community of "inspiration, support, fun, and frivolity."
It also gave Meghan a place to share her opinions. That said, the blog could become a good source of income for a family of four. In "Harry and Meghan," she revealed that doing the blog wasn't just a hobby for her, but it became a successful business.
