Talented actress, former royal, feminist, mother, and humanitarian: We know that Meghan Markle is many things at once. But her Megxit from the British royal scene, along with her husband Prince Harry, has added even more layers to her already dynamic personality.
Among her recent ventures when she and Harry cut ties with their royal duties, there are projects closer to their fort; She first appeared in the spotlight when she starred in Rachel Zane in Costumes.
Her first fresh-from-royalty job also plays on her screen-related skills: she landed a gig narrating the Disney documentary Elephant, which aired alongside another document on dolphins with a voiceover by Natalie Portman. To accommodate her humanitarian work, Meghan even requested that a portion of her salary be donated to Elephants Without Borders, a conservation charity in Botswana.
Now, it is rumored that Meghan may be exploring another option to fill both her time and her wallet as she and Harry walk away from the actual payroll.
Will Meghan Markle relaunch her own blog… again?
According to comments made by real expert Myka Meier in the Really Obsessed podcast in late April 2020, Meghan Markle could revive her now-discontinued travel and lifestyle blog, The Tig. Meier believes the relaunch of the blog may already be underway, along with a new Instagram identifier for her brand after she and Harry severed ties with their Sussex Royal account.
“I think we will see something very interesting and creative with masterminds from around the world coming together to bring something inspiring soon,” predicted the expert, pointing to Gwyneth Paltrow Goop as an example of what Meghan could pursue. Meier added: “‘I have a friend with a little inside information and I think she is already working on something.”
According to a scoop on The Sun that was reported by The Daily Mail, Meghan’s business manager Andrew Meyer asked to bookmark the blog until 2021. While Meghan’s spokeswoman The Sun said this was in an effort to “avoid the fake brand “and” prevent others from pretending to be or affiliate with the duchess, “other information suggests that it could signal a new beginning for another of Meghan’s projects.
The company that filed the documents to extend Meghan’s rights to her website name is also rumored to have an affiliate website under her wing called “Tigtots,” which may be a blog for parents with young children.
What would Meghan Markle’s new blog be about?
Not everyone agrees that Meghan Markle’s potential renewal of her blog would mimic the usual ‘market’ for core blogging, such as Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop brand. Instead, expert Leslie Carroll said Meghan’s blog could take a different turn.
“Although she was a lifestyle blogger before she met and married Harry, she has always been dedicated to philanthropy as well as her focus on empowering women and girls,” said Carroll from Fox News. “My intuition tells me that if Meghan launched a new blog, she wouldn’t choose to compete with Gwyneth at all in the Goop market for expensive scented candles and questionable personal care.”
In fact, Meghan’s work in the feminist movement has received more attention since she joined forces with Harry and the royal family. Her work in space now includes even more international experience, which could justify a blog that is different in tone than it was before.
And considering that she’s a mom now, coming up with a host of new experiences to share and reflect on, it wouldn’t be a huge leap to imagine Tigtots sometime in the near future either.
