Before the Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry, she ran ‘The Tig’. Meghan reportedly wants to revive it and has reapplied for the trademark for the title.
Express.co.uk checked the US Patent and Trademark Office, and found a live trademark filing for ‘The Tig’.
The trademark is listed as 1B on “current basis”, meaning the holder has “a bona fide intention to use your mark in commerce with your goods and/or services in the near future”, and was filed on February 25, 2022.
The same logo used on the Duchess’ old blog is listed on the US website, and detailed as follows: “Providing a website featuring non-downloadable articles, interviews, photographs, and commentary in the field of food, cooking, recipes, travel, relationships, fashion, style, lifestyle, the arts, culture, design, conscious living, and health and wellness”.
The attorney of record was Marjorie Witter Norman, who handled previous trademark registrations for Meghan.

The Mail on Sunday reported that Markle’s lawyer Majorie Witter Norman had filed a new application to trademark ‘The Tig’ in July 2021.
The application was made under a Delaware-based holding company Frim Fram Inc, which has links to the duchess’s business manager Andrew Meyer.
Royal author Tina Brown wrote in her book ‘The Palace Papers’ Meghan “often was still on set at 4AM” after filming ‘Suits’ updating her blog.
