Meghan Markle could turn herself into a mommy blogger in a bid to establish herself as a separate entity from Prince Harry, royal commentator Kinsey Schofield suggested.
“Meghan once aspired to have her own cooking series. The Tig would, yet again, give her that platform.
“Short-form digital videos that she could take to someone like Netflix and show them the analytics to plead her case for a bigger opportunity.”
The To Di For Daily host suggested the Duchess’s children, Archie and Lilibet, might also feature in some of her potential entries.
She continued: “I would anticipate lists of Archie and Lili’s favourite books, go-to snacks, DIY projects. Candid entries about how she manages her time or stress, a five-minute makeup routine for moms on the go; mini-meditations for busy moms, travel, interior design, interviews, those types of posts.
“Harry and Meghan have told us repeatedly through multiple projects that Meghan gave up everything for Harry.
“Perhaps this is Meghan trying to reclaim her identity, telling the world that she is more than Harry’s plus 1.”
Schofield suggested the Duchess could unveil her plans for The Tig on February 14 due to the importance the date has for her family.
Harry and Meghan announced they were expecting their daughter Lilibet on February 14, 2021. Princess Diana also announced she was expecting Harry on February 14, 1984.

But she also told Fox News Digital Meghan could wait to launch the blog itself until the platform is deemed perfect to avoid criticism.
She added: “Keeping all of their launches under wraps is their typical MO. It allows the Sussexes to shift the goalpost without looking like failures.
“If we don’t see a February release for The Tig, it’s simply because the product is not perfect yet. But this is an important way for Meghan to brand herself beyond being Harry’s wife, and I believe it is a priority for her.
“I don’t think The Tig will be a controversial outlet. She might get political, but we have come to expect that of her, so it has less of an impact.”
The name of the website was inspired by her love for the Italian wine Tignatello, and she used the platform to share her personal reflections as well as discuss her love for food and travel.
The Duchess shut down The Tig months after she started dating Prince Harry in 2017.
In her farewell message to her followers, Meghan wrote: “After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig.
“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy.
“Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything.”
