Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress Designer Clare Waight Keller Steps Down from Givenchy

The designer continued to support Prince Harry and Meghan through her Instagram, posting half a dozen pictures of the couple on their wedding day and even uploading a photo of Meghan and Harry on their royal tour of New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and Tonga (with Meghan wearing full-on Givenchy!) to congratulate the new parents on their arrival of Archie.

In one Instagram, Waight Keller noted that being an integral part of Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry “will truly be the most memorable moment” in her career.

And Meghan’s wedding gown only marked the first of many chic Givenchy ensembles to come, as the duchess continued to support Waight Keller by sporting her designs often, making Givenchy one of Meghan’s favorite go-to brands.

From Meghan’s first royal Ascot to attending her first solo engagement at the Royal Academy of Art in London to watching Wimbledon matches with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, she continued to stun in Givenchy creations.

In a surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards in December 2018, it was fitting that Meghan, who presented the British Designer of the Year Womenswear Award to Waight Keller, wore a sleek, black one-shouldered Givenchy dress for the occasion.

“The ultimate surprise – the very special moment that I discovered #meghanmarkle #duchessofsussex was going to give me the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year,” the caption said. “Such an extraordinary moment of emotion and love for this amazing woman who changed my life 🖤 thank you @givenchyofficial.”

LVMH has not yet announced who will be succeeding Waight Keller as artistic director.
