Meghan Markle’s partnership with Reitmans comes to an end

By Sophie Hamilton

Meghan Markle’s role as an ambassador for Canadian retailer Reitmans has come to an end. The actress helped design two capsule collections for the brand, before parting ways earlier this year.

In a statement to HELLO!, Reitmans confirmed that its contract with the Suits star has run its course. “The partnership with Meghan Markle and Reitmans ended on a very positive note, and in line with the contract. The initiative was always meant to contain only two collections that were created with our in-house team of Montreal based designers and two advertising campaigns to support these collections."

“The partnership ended as was originally planned. We are very pleased with the collaboration we shared and we wish Meghan Markle much happiness in the future.”

The news comes just a week after the star closed her lifestyle blog The Tig, which focused on food, travel, beauty and fashion. There is speculation as to whether these events mean Meghan is preparing for a future with Prince Harry, although no news has been announced as of yet.

Meghan and Harry’s romance appears to be going from strength to strength. Last Wednesday, the 32-year-old Prince visited his girlfriend in Toronto. In photos published by E! News, the 32-year-old royal was seen outside of Meghan's residence carrying a duffle bag and covering his face with a baseball cap.

Meghan posted a goodbye message when she closed her blog in April of this year. It read: "To all my Tig friends. After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it's time to say goodbye to The Tig. What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You've made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don't ever forget your worth - as I've told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything."
