Shortly after Prince Harry and Meghan announced they were stepping back as senior royals, they launched a new website, Sussexroyal.com, with detailed information about their plans.
However, one detail about the new website, decorated with navy blue and grey themes, has been spotted by eagle-eyed royal watchers; it was made by Article — the same web development company that once made Meghan’s lifestyle blog, The Tig.
As you may remember, Meghan closed down her blog and social media accounts in 2017 following the couple’s engagement. The Tig covered fashion, food, beauty, and travel, and served as an outlet for Meghan to talk about her humanitarian efforts, and to highlight inspirational women in her life.
The Article carries a link to Meghan’s final post on her blog- a letter to “all my Tig friends”. It says: “What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world’.”
Harry and Meghan’s website was first registered 10 months ago, in March last year, and has been secretly developed since then. According to HELLO!, the couple likely worked on the site during their six-week break from royal duties, much of which was spent quietly on vacation in Canada.
“It’s been a pleasure to work on this website with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” Ryan Sax, the founder of Article told Town & Country.
“To know that they chose our boutique Canadian agency means so much to us, and I’m happy we could create something special for them.”
Prince Harry and Meghan surprised everyone when they announced their future plans. They said they had made the decision “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.
“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”
