MEGHAN Markle has put the finishing touches to a massive new project, it can be revealed. 

It comes as Prince Harry announced he will travel alone to King Charles' coronation next month, as Meghan stays in California with their children.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, has now successfully been handed a trademark for the relaunch of her lifestyle website The Tig.

It's iconic logo features a handwritten Tig with a full stop at the end.

Her friend Omid Scobie wrote on Twitter: "I understand that Archie's fourth birthday (also on May 6) played a factor in the couple's decision.

"Expect it to be a fairly quick trip to the UK for Prince Harry, who will only be attending the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey."

The mum-of-two is expected to make millions from the relaunch of her website The Tig by advertising clothes, holidays and interior design pieces.

She shut down the successful blog after three years following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017.

At the time she was earning up to £60,000 ($80,000)-a-year through advertising, according to reports.

And it's expected a relaunch could easily break the £1million mark.

David Olusegun, founder of Creative Control Ventures, previously told the Express Meghan could monetise the brand.

He added: "Meghan could partner with brands that align with The Tig's mission and values to create sponsored content. This could include sponsored blog posts, social media updates, or videos."

Meghan will be posting articles about "food, cooking, recipes, travel, relationships, fashion and style", according to the site's trademark application.

It added: "THE TIG. trademark will be used to… [provide] a website featuring non-downloadable articles, interviews, photographs, and commentary in the fields of arts and popular culture."

It will also cover interior design and personal relationships, fuelling rumours Meghan could act as an agony aunt on the blog.

The Tig, named after her favourite wine Tignanello, would allegedly rival Gwyneth Paltrow's £200million Goop, which offers similar wellness and "conscious living" content.

She previously described it as a "passion project" which "evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity".

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliam told the SunOnline: "The Tig sounded rather imaginative. She had to give it up but it was always part of her personality. If she focused on her own abilities as opposed to attacking the royal family that is what they should do.

"The Sussex' have been playing such destructive games. They need to create their own careers from their own talents."

Not only would The Tig be a space for her to vent her views, it could also provide the Sussexes a substantial income.

Since stepping down as senior royals, the couple have produced a podcast, Netflix documentary and memoir, as well as several high-profile interviews between them.

These are said to have made them millions of dollars.

Speaking in docuseries Harry & Meghan, she said of the blog: "It wasn't just a hobby, it became a really successful business.

"I've never really been the type of person to do only one thing. I guess that's how my website was born.

"There was fashion, tons of food, and travel – all the things that I loved."

Suits director and Meghan's pal Silver Tree said: "When she first was describing [The Tig] to me, she was like, 'It's like your best friend telling you all the fun things you wish you knew about in one place'."

According to royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the site was shut down due to "intense media scrutiny".
