Meghan Markle Has Renewed The Trademarks For The Tig And 'Tigtots'

While we're already glued to both she and Harry's royal Instagram account, should we be expecting some surplus royal content?

The Duchess of Sussex has been busy.

Following her stint as the guest editor of the September issue of British Vogue while on maternity leave and designing a capsule collection of workwear in the interim, Meghan Markle has been relentless in the pursuit of her passion projects since becoming a Duchess. 

And it looks like she has no intention of stopping. 

According to The Sun, Markle's business manager, Andrew Meyer, recently filed to renew the trademark for The Tig, the lifestyle blog she started in 2014 as a "hub for the discerning palate—those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion, and beauty.”

The site was shut down in 2017, just a few months before meeting Prince Harry.

Renewing the trademark, which was done through a company called Frim Fram, means that she gets to keep the rights to The Tig's name until 2021.

As well as that, the paper also reports that Frim Fram lists another website under its trademark umbrella called Tigtots.

The move conjures up a number of questions; will there be a royal resurgence of The Tig? Is a parenting one in the mix?

Although, Markle's spokeswoman has revealed that the renewal was purely protectionary. 

"The lasting trademark is to prevent false branding, to avoid others purporting to be the duchess or affiliated with her," they told The Sun.

While a move like this is a familiar one with celebrities - the Jenners, Kardashians have done the same - Markle's chosen method of royal-adjacent protocol is to rip up the rule book and structure things her own way. 

Might we see some additional Sussex family content by way of The Tig and Tigtots? Only time will tell...
