Meghan Markle's plan to relaunch her lifestyle blog in September 2021 encountered problems as she reportedly failed to apply for the reactivation of The Tig trademark, a royal expert claimed. 

According to royal commentator Richard Eden, the Duchess of Sussex failed to sign the application. The Daily Mail columnist said Meghan had been told to "twiddle her thumbs" for six months before she could apply again.

"Now, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has informed the Duchess of Sussex she will have to twiddle her thumbs for six months before being able to apply again. It has also told her the original description of the website was 'too broad', " Eden added. The commentator also recalled how Meghan applied to trademark the word "archetypes," which first appeared in the English language 470 years ago, after deciding to use it for the title of her Spotify podcast channel.

Before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan ran a lifestyle blog called The Tig. She documented everything about her life, from her favorite holidays to her most preferred bottles of wine. However, upon joining the British Royal Family, she was allegedly forced to ditch it.

Commentators believed that the 40-year-old regretted it a lot, so when the couple relocated to the United States after withdrawing from their senior royal duties, it was rumored that The Tig would make a return. Meghan is reportedly planning to cover food, cooking, recipes, travel, relationships, fashion, lifestyle, the arts, culture, design, conscious living, and health.

Meanwhile, Netflix officially canceled its development of The Archewell Productions' "Pearl," an animated series wherein Meghan was the executive producer, alongside Elton John's husband, David Furnish.

The show has been pulled out due to budget cuts and a fall in subscribers. The animated series was planned to follow the adventures of a 12-year-old girl inspired by influential women from history. The move to drop Meghan's animated project has been dubbed a "complete disaster" for the Sussexes. A royal commentator has claimed it "looks as if there's not much that they're able to do apart from moaning about the royals."

Archewell Productions, the company, formed by Harry and Meghan, will continue to work on other projects with Netflix – including Harry's "Heart of Invictus," a documentary series about the Invictus Games and its athletes.
