Now that she’s no longer formally tethered to the royal family, Meghan Markle is planning to get to work! According to one source, the Duchess of Sussex has her eye on several creative endeavors and — rejoice — one of them is rumored to be the relaunch of her popular blog, The Tig. But it sounds as though Meghan also has her sights set on branding and expanding her lifestyle empire.
It’s been a big week for the Sussex family, and Meghan in particular. She and Harry moved back to her home state of California. Her first official post-royal gig as narrator for Disney’s Elephant docuseries was announced. And now, a source for Us Weekly says the Duchess is ready to hit the ground running. First up? Bringing The Tig back to life. She doesn’t intend to stop there, either. The source claims Meghan hopes to write another cookbook (she penned Together: Our Community Cookbook in 2018 to benefit the Hubb Community Kitchen in London) and possibly even develop her own kitchenware line.
All of this on top of being a mom and helping to get her and Prince Harry’s new charity off the ground. “Meghan has heaps of projects in the works,” said the source, adding one is particularly personal — she wants to give baby Archie a sibling, and she and Harry will “start trying in earnest pretty soon” to conceive.

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin
She’ll be like the Joanna Gaines of the royal family, and we are here for it.
For now, however, Meghan is reportedly focusing on her family’s wellbeing in the midst of what is proving to be a year full of transition. On January 8, she and Harry made the historic announcement that they were going to “step back” from their roles as senior royals. Then moved to Canada to kick off their new, still-evolving arrangement with the monarchy.
However, with Canada having recently announced they’re closing their borders due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Sussexes apparently decided now was as good a time as any to make the shift to sunny California. Fortunately, the couple already had a strong support system in place there since her mom, Doria Ragland, resides in Los Angeles.
It also goes without saying that many, many celebrities live in the Hollywood area, where Harry and Meghan are allegedly looking to find their permanent home. So, Meghan will undoubtedly have plenty of famous friends to lean on as she gets her lifestyle empire rolling.
