Duchess Meghan ran her own blog for a long time – on “The Tig” the royal shared her favorite recipes, interior design and much more. The blog was then taken offline in 2017 with her engagement to Prince Harry. Apparently this should now be undone.
In recent months, Duchess Meghan has been increasingly public: she speaks in podcasts, publishes a book, gives tons of interviews and even spoke about her past with the British Royals in an exclusive Neflix documentary. According to “mirror.co.uk” it is now planned to put her blog back online.
Duchess Meghan should also distribute relationship advice on her blog
Now the situation for the couple is completely different, because the Sussexes have distanced themselves as far as possible from the strict rules of the British royal family and built a new life in the USA. Duchess Meghan should now also distribute relationship advice on her blog. Does she take the successful entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow and her multi-million dollar label “Goop” as a role model? It all started a few years ago as the superstar’s personal blog and grew into a second career for former actress Paltrow.
But the announcement of the Duchess causes irritation. Because some observers think that the mother-of-two’s return to the world of wellness and lifestyle is at odds with her role in charity. For example, Charlotte Kilpatrick, columnist for “New Statesman”, criticizes that Duchess Meghan wants to deal with “smoothies and yoga” instead of questioning the mechanisms for which she and her husband ended up in a palace while others only remain “perfumed Buying candles for apartments they can’t afford.”
She doesn’t understand the Duchess’ approach, which she feels is the “biggest contradiction”. After all, she always stands up for minorities with Harry – both with Archwell and with other projects. But according to Kilpatrick, her old self, the lifestyle blogger, would not go with this charity image. After all, home decor tips won’t help families find homes, just like travel tips won’t help them recover from burnout “if you can’t afford vacations.”
Duchess Meghan’s blog: fans are happy
But the Duchess’s fans seem excited for the blog’s return. One user even wrote on Twitter, according to mirror.co.uk, that he’s excited to read The Tig again, written by “this icon, wife, mother, activist, philanthropist and survivor.”
Columnist Charlotte Kilpatrick would probably disagree. In any case, it is questionable whether Duchess Meghan’s blog, after everything that has happened since she left the British royal family, can have such enormous success as the supposed role model “Goop”. Because one thing is clear: the popularity of the Sussexes continues to fall and more and more big names are turning away from the couple.
