MEGHAN has quietly renewed the trademark for her lifestyle website The Tig.
The Duchess’s business manager Andrew Meyer filed documents in the US using a company called Frim Fram to keep rights to the name until at least 2021.
It raises the prospect Meghan, 38, could relaunch the platform, where she shared stories about her favourite food, places, fashion and inspiring women.
There is also a website listed under Frim Fram named Tigtots, which could be a version aimed at parents.
Last week The Sun told how Meghan told her advisers “I want to break the internet” when discussing her controversial Vogue guest editorship.
Royal insiders speculate that reviving her website would help her do just that.
A source said: “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.”
The Duchess of Sussex launched the site in 2014, calling it “a hub for the discerning palate — those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion and beauty”.
In one post she writes about “sustainable travel tips”, hinting at the eco-agenda that has recently proved controversial for her and Harry.
She shut The Tig in April 2017, three months before meeting her husband.
Her spokeswoman said: “The lasting trademark is to prevent false branding, to avoid others purporting to be the Duchess or affiliated with her.”
