Meghan Markle’s Suits character lays law on new employee
Meghan Markle should relinquish her royal title if she wants to restart her lifestyle blog The Tig and use it to promote products, according to a royal expert.
Meghan and Prince Harry quit royal life and moved to California in 2020, yet they are still known formally as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, even as they have distanced themselves from the Firm.
It has been speculated that Meghan could relaunch her blog The Tig, which she ran from 2014-2017 while she starred as Rachel Zane in Suits, as a way to boost her public profile and generate more income.
She could take inspiration from pal Gwyneth Paltrow, whose lifestyle brand Goop is now a multi-million dollar empire, however Ingrid Seward believes that if she does she must give up her royal title.
She told Vanessa Feltz on TalkTV: “Maybe I’m a bit old fashioned but I really don’t think a duchess who is married to the King’s son should be going around promoting goods. I mean, everything she wears she’s been given and she expects that and working princesses and duchesses would never do that.”

She added: “I’m actually now of the opinion and I never have been before that if she wants to do that, regenerate her lifestyle blog, she really should give up her title and just be Meghan Markle and forget the Duchess of Sussex and leave Harry well out of it.”
If she does relaunch the blog Meghan may want to get back on social media, as a PR expert told Express.co.uk that she needs to “reestablish herself”.
Despite no longer having her own Instagram account, Meghan recently featured in a picture with friends which was shared on one of their accounts, marking her return to the platform.

Penelope Banton, Embryo’s Digital PR Lead, told Express.co.uk: “It’s likely The Duchess will have been advised to reestablish herself on social media to boost the promotion of her latest endeavour – something I would very much endorse to increase organic PR.
“It does however beg the question if Meghan has made a social comeback ahead of the release of ‘Meet Me at the Lake’.”
The Duke and Duchess have reportedly bought the rights to the Carley Fortune novel to adapt for Netflix, in a possible major new project with the streaming giant.
Ms Banton continued: “Whilst Meghan Markle champions the ‘right to privacy’, she can also hold active social media accounts and remain somewhat private.
“Posting on Instagram, for example, can be as often or sparse as desired – if you’re using it purely for organic reasons, there’s no need to have any sort of growth strategy in place.”
The couple’s latest documentary, Heart of Invictus, is scheduled to be released on Netflix on August 30.
