Meghan Markle has done a lot of things. While she was acting on “Suits,” one of the most watched series on the USA Channel, she also ran a lifestyle blog called The Tig, which was kind of like Goop, but you know, for people who were interested in buying normal stuff.

Markle is also known for her humanitarian work with different organizations such as the UN, World Vision Canada, and One Young World. Now she’s making headlines because she’ll soon marry Prince Harry, when she’ll become Duchess of Sussex.

Way back in 2012, TMZ discovered that Markle and a friend registered a trademark for a candy store called “Lali,” which would’ve sold lollipops and candy drops (Via Newsweek). Two years later, the idea was scrapped and the store never became a thing, but it could in the future!

While British royals are very particular when it comes to releasing their private information, thus the closing of The Tig and Markle’s retirement from acting, we assume that they have nothing against their members taking on different business endeavors.

Markle has expressed her desire to dive deeper into humanitarian work, which she’s described as her driving purpose.

“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches—I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works. And this type of work is what feeds my soul, and fuels my purpose.”
