While the dust is yet to settle over the announcement by the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex, Prince Harry and Megan Markle,their shock decision to step down as “senior” royals and split their time between the UK and Canada,thus exiting their duties within the royal house,Megan seem to have set the ball rolling of their determination to be financially independent of the British monachy. She is reportedly already negotiating commercial deals with fashion brands like Givenchy.
According to sources,
“There have already been active discussions with Givenchy and the Duchess,and some of these deals could be worth millions of pounds.
“I’m sure she is going to link some of the initiatives to their foundation.”
Meghan’s move didn’t come as a surprise,as the French label made her £325,000 wedding dress.
She has also worn a number of items from the brand worth thousands of pounds during her royal career.
Givenchy’s creative lead, Clare Waight Keller has gushed about the Duchess in the past,saying, “This woman is so amazing. I got to know Meghan on such a personal level. To have someone like that trust you on such a personal moment in their life… I can’t thank you enough because it was the most beautiful moment.”
Caroline Wolf, stylist and founder of the Capsule Wardrobe Collection said: “Meghan’s evolving, deliberate style always showed that she meant business and in 2020, should she be permitted to step back from royal duties and spent her time shuttling back and forth between the UK and Canada, we’re likely to see her either returning to her career on the big screen or continuing to develop her fashion lines.”
