Meghan is already negotiating commercial deals with fashion brands like Givenchy
Meghan Markle is said to be negotiating a deal that could be worth millions with fashion brands including the French fashion house behind her wedding dress, Givenchy. A source told the Sun: “Meghan is very connected in the fashion industry and there are a lot of major labels who would like to partner with her on projects.
“There have already been active discussions with Givenchy. 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.”
There is little surprise Meghan is negotiating with Givenchy, given that 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.
She said: “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.”

A fashion expert predicted the move in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk.
Caroline Wolf, stylist and founded 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.”
The Duchess of Sussex has been a fan of Givenchy for quite some time.
In fact, she has a £7,000 collection of bags from the designer.
At the Trooping the Colour in June 2019 she debuted just one of the many pricey accessories she owns.

In her hands Meghan held the Givenchy Mini Pocket Quilted Bag in a turquoise hue. The bag is £850 full price.
Meghan has already turned her hand to a number of fashion-related projects, include guesting editing the September issue of British Vogue.
Additionally, she created a Smart Set charity collection for SmartWorks in September last year.
The capsule collection sold out, and soon garments were sold on eBay for inflated prices.
Meghan and Harry have spent the last six months trademarking products set to make them £400million, it has been revealed.
Andy Barr, retail expert and co-founder of online price tracking website, www.alertr.co.uk, commented on the news Meghan and Harry have trademarked the brand name “Sussex Royal”, as well as various items.
The trademark could be used on books, paper, journals and pencils, footwear, sweaters, pyjamas and campaigning material.
Mr Barr said: “This will just be the stepping stone for higher value products being launched later down the line. Undoubtedly this will be a multi-million pound revenue business given they are effectively trading on the back of the Royal name which is ironic given they are seemingly trying to escape its clutches.
“We would conservatively estimate that the ‘MegRy’ revenue will dwarf that of Prince Charles various Duchy business fortunes. With his revenue estimated to be £200m in the last year, we would not be surprised to see Harry and Meghan more than double that from scratch with their combined global appeal.”
