Meghan Markle celebrated launching the sussex.com site.

"There is a reason I have worked with Ryan and the talented team at Article for a decade: their attention to detail, their creativity and care, and the thoughtful approach to design as well as to the user experience," the Suits star said in a statement.

"They're not just designers; they are collaborators who elevate your ideas into visual identities," the mom-of-two added. "They're a very special company. Plus they're Canadian, so I'm a fan."

Before the actress moved to the U.K., she lived in Toronto while filming the show Suits, and she's been open about her love of the region.
