Speculation has been generated after Meghan’s business manager Andrew Meyer filed documents in the US to keep rights to the name until at at least 2021. According to The Sun, the company the name is listed under, Frim Fram, also has a website called Tigtots listed. A royal source told the newspaper: “It’s fascinating Meghan’s business manager has ensured she keeps The Tig for a few more years at least.
Of course it’s understandable she wouldn’t want an entrepreneur using the name without her involvement.
“But given her desire to be a different type of royal — pushing her own causes using digital and social media — it’s not out of the question she’d think The Tig could play an important role.”
Meghan originally launched the site in 2014 and kept it open for three years, describing it as “a hub for the discerning palate — those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion and beauty”.
The Duchess, who has been criticised after it emerged herself and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex travelled on four private flights in eleven days, writes about “sustainable travel tips” in one post.
A royal spokeswoman said: “The lasting trademark is to prevent false branding, to avoid others purporting to be the Duchess or affiliated with her.”
Later this month, Meghan will take her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on his first overseas royal trip.
They will join Harry in South Africa.
Harry will travel solo to Botswana, Angola and Malawi.
Meghan is due to host a working women’s breakfast in Cape Town.
South Africa, Botswana and Malawi were all once part of the British Empire.
The latter two as the protectorates of Bechuanaland and Nyasaland.
Angola was not but was for several centuries part of the Portuguese Empire.
Harry and Meghan met in 2016.
They married on May 19 last year.
Harry’s cousin Zara Tindall has recently explained viral photos of her looking uncomfortable at the wedding.
Zara was pregnant with her second daughter Lena at time.
She explained: “I was uncomfortable! My bum sort of slid over either side and Lena kicked the hell out of me for an hour.
“It just wasn’t comfy at all and it probably showed on my face.”
Zara, daughter of Anne, Princess Royal also discussed an energetic 13 minute speech from Bishop Michael Curry: “It was just the general amount of time everything was taking.
“I think my face was probably caught at the point when I thought: 'Right, he's going to finish now', and then he went off on another little story, and it was like, 'Really?’”
Harry is sixth in the line of succession whilst Archie is seventh.
