Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry shook the entire world when they recently revealed that they would step back and withdraw as royals to focus on other projects. They revealed that starting their own charity is on the agenda, as well as taking steps to become financially independent.
The royal couple did not state exactly how they plan to earn their own income, which led the real observers to make serious speculations everywhere. Some believe that Meghan will return to her previous career, while others wonder if her special parallel project will return in a monetized way.
Why do Meghan Markle and Prince Harry retire as royalty members?
On January 8, Meghan and Prince Harry posted a statement on their Instagram account. They announced their decision to “make a transition” by stepping back as royals.
His statement revealed that they want to “work to be financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen.” They detailed how they plan to divide their time between North America and the United Kingdom. This, according to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will allow them to raise their young son, Archie Harrison, with an appreciation of both his heritage and the world in general.
It is clear that they want to provide a better life for their child, but it is also likely that the relentless media pressure over the past year has influenced their decision at least. Meghan has undergone intense scrutiny, with British tabloids questioning every move.
Prince Harry has defended her tirelessly, and her own reputation has been affected in the process. When you step back, the couple will be less obliged to speak directly with the media and can share ads through their Instagram page.
What is “The Tig”?
Before meeting and marrying Prince Harry, Meghan was an actress, who had a leading role in the television series. Suits. Meghan was also an influential leader in social networks and loved to interact with her fans and followers.
In 2014, Meghan launched her own lifestyle website called The Tig. The site featured Meghan’s favorite things, such as wine and beauty products, and gave her followers a glimpse into her daily routine. Frequently, Meghan shared her precious recipes and favorite places to visit while traveling, as well as interviews with other celebrities and influencers.
In early 2017, a few months after beginning his romantic relationship with Prince Harry, Meghan closed the website. While sources close to Meghan denied that the closure of the website had anything to do with Prince Harry and that she wanted to devote more time to humanitarian causes, it was clear that her new involvement with the royal family was at least partially responsible.
Will Meghan Markle bring “The Tig” back?
There has been much speculation in recent days that Meghan could once again act as a way to earn money once she and Prince Harry officially separate from the royal family.
While Meghan has said nothing about a future in film or television, it seems more likely at this time that she and her husband concentrate their efforts on public speaking, writing and other humanitarian outreach efforts. While Meghan has reportedly signed up for a voiceover job for a Disney project, it’s not a monetized effort: voiceover work is done in exchange for a donation to a charity called Elephants Without Borders
Even so, it is possible for Meghan to return to the online space, and once she is no longer a high-ranking member of the royal family, the guidelines she should follow will be less strict. With its new reach, Meghan could make Tig even more successful and monetize it so that her income can help charities that are important to her.
Even if he doesn’t open The Tig again, he could establish some other kind of direct contact with fans and fans. After all, their Instagram page has become incredibly popular, and the couple has shown that they prefer to share information directly themselves, rather than relying on an external source to disseminate information.
