Meghan Markle, brand ambassador? Let’s see what Dior thinks

Did you hear the whispers that Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, was poised to join the glitzy ranks of Dior brand ambassadors alongside Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, and Anya Taylor-Joy? The murmur started following Prince Harry’s stunning appearance, clad in Dior, at his father King Charles’s coronation.

The rumors

Hold your horses, royal fashion enthusiasts. It seems like the rumors were just that – rumors. A representative from the house of Dior in Paris shared with Women’s Wear Daily that these reports had no roots in reality. They emphasized the absence of recent negotiations or contact with Markle. Echoing this sentiment, a spokesperson for the Sussexes earlier dismissed these speculations as untrue to The Telegraph.

Despite the recent denial, there’s no denying that Dior holds a special place in the Duchess’s wardrobe. Meghan has rocked Dior ensembles for various royal occasions – from celebrating the Royal Air Force’s centenary to commemorating Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee and Funeral. She also graced her son, Prince Archie’s christening, and a royal visit to Morocco donning chic Dior outfits.

Dior has long been a beloved label within the royal family. The brand’s connection notably deepened with Princess Diana, leading to the iconic fashion house even renaming a bag in her honor. Additionally, the founder, Christian Dior, shared in his memoir how Princess Margaret was a “real fairy princess, delicate, graceful, exquisite”, and how she intensified the public’s fascination with royalty.

Career re-route

Meghan’s speculated alliance with Dior isn’t the only recent topic of buzz. News of Spotify and the Sussexes parting ways over Meghan’s podcast Archetypes also made headlines. Both Spotify and Archewell Audio stated they “have mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together.” 

Meghan, as per her talent agency, William Morris Endeavor (WME), will continue crafting content for Archetypes‘ eager audience on a new platform.

In the lead up to the coronation, speculations abounded about the Sussexes’ attendance. The timing was critical, coming on the heels of Prince Harry’s candid memoir Spare, and lingering tensions within the royal family were no secret.\

 During a press event promoting Spare, when interviewer Tom Bradby asked if Harry would attend the coronation, the Prince responded, “There’s a lot that can happen between now and then. But, the door is always open. The ball is in their court.”

Surprise meeting

But lo and behold, the Sussexes decided to attend. Following fruitful discussions, Buckingham Palace announced, and a representative for the Sussexes confirmed, that Prince Harry would be present at the coronation. The statement read, “The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”

Prince Harry made a grand entrance at Westminster Abbey, joining non-working royals like Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Insiders at Town & Country understood that Harry’s UK trip would span less than forty-eight hours, as he hopes to return stateside to celebrate the last hours of his son Archie’s fourth birthday.

As the day winds down and Archie blows out his candles, one can’t help but wonder: What’s next for the Sussexes in this intricate dance with royalty, fashion, and their expanding global influence?
