Meghan Markle receives a new setback

Life away from the Palace is not always easy, and that is something they have had to learn the prince harry Y Meghan Markle. Although a host of new opportunities were found upon his departure from the UK, the bumps in the road have not been lacking. Beyond their various legal battles ranging from those they have against the tabloids, to the one that the Duke has filed against the British government, some businesses have not turned out as expected. News broke just earlier this week that Pearl, the animated production Meghan was working on with Netflix as part of her multi-million dollar deal, had been canceled amid reports from the platform, and now it appears the Duchess has received a new setback. This time about the registration of the blog that she had before meeting Prince Harry, and from which months ago there were rumors that she wanted to renew the paperwork in the United States.



The new legal mess in which Meghan Markle has been involved

Meghan will enter the world of podcasts

It was at the beginning of February that it became known through the Dailymail that Meghan’s lawyer had sought to renew the registration of The Tig, the blog that the Duchess had before meeting Prince Harry. Reportedly, it was since July 2021 that she sought to renew the registration, something that has been done since her life changed, apparently to protect the name of other people who wanted to exploit it. Despite having this knowledge, speculation began with the news of a possible return of the site, now that Meghan no longer has her responsibilities with the Royal Family.

The record, according to the British tabloid, is made through the company Frim Fram Inc, which is related to Andrew Meyer, from the Duchess’s team since before he met Harry. When the same process was carried out in 2019, a spokesperson for Markle explained the nature of this: “The current brand is to prevent false advertisements, to prevent others from impersonating the Duchess or who are affiliated with her.”


Now, it is the same British tabloid that points out that the renewal could not be carried out successfully. As explained, the procedure lacked a key piece… it does not have Meghan’s signature. According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, you will have to wait six more months before you can apply again, since you did not have all the necessary elements to do so at this time. In addition, a caption was included explaining that the description of the site is too broad to be considered – something that has happened before in the Sussexes’ attempts to record it.

Meghan Markle says goodbye with nostalgia to her blog The Tig

what was the tig

It is a lifestyle blog that Meghan started in 2014, which had the potential to be commercialized thanks to the many recommendations that were made through it. The name was inspired by the then actress’s favorite wine, Tignanello, and as she explained on the site, drinking it was the “aha moment” of her life. In 2017, before the announcement of her commitment to the Prince, Meghan said goodbye to her followers with this message:

“To all my Tig friends, 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) has evolved into an incredible community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You have 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 things, do not forget your value, as I have told you over and over again; You, my sweet friend, are enough. Thank you for everything,” Meghan signed.
