Meghan Markle wears Princess Diana's earrings and bracelet to capsule collection launch

Duchess of Sussex announces patronages

Several of Diana's diamond were included in Meghan's engagement ring, and the Duchess of Sussex was spotted wearing the late Princess of Wales's aquamarine ring while leaving her wedding reception with Harry on May 19, 2018.

The Duchess of Sussex capped off an eventful day - her return to royal duty from maternity leave by unveiling a capsule collection of women's workwear to benefit her patronage Smart Works - with a fun video she shared on her Instagram story.

For the event, she wore two pieces from her own collection: the Misha Nonoo shirt and the Jigsaw pants, paired with a belt by Ralph Lauren. The duchess, who wore jeans to Wimbledon and is said to have the weekly shop delivered by Ocado rather than Harrods, reminded the audience that nearly exactly a year ago she had launched the Together cookbook with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen those affected by the Grenfell fire.

Meghan, who became the patron of Smart Works in January, said in a statement: "Since moving to the United Kingdom, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organizations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact".

Meghan added: "When you buy any item in the Smart Set capsule collection, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client".

"Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project - placing objective over profit and community over competition", Markle wrote on Instagram.

The duchess's capsule line aims to provide budget-friendly wardrobe options for women heading to job interviews and new jobs.


Meghan is its patron and has a long-standing commitment to supporting women's empowerment. For every item bought from The Smart Set, a second will be purchased and donated to Smart Works, which helps women who are unemployed land jobs. "And I don't need that anymore, because I am where I want to be", she continued.

"Her smiles are very direct, involving the kind of knowing head-tilt of recognition that suggests she's happy to be back at work".

Two items from Meghan Markle's new clothing line appear to have been leaked early, just hours before the duchess is due to officially unveil the collection in London.

The trip, which Meghan undertook with her and her husband Prince Harry's son Archie was, according to sources, spur of the moment, with an insider confirming to The Times it was a "last-minute trip" and Meghan was "excited to support her friend, and then come back".

When it comes to fashion the Duchess of Sussex most certainly has the midas touch, with anything she wears in public usually selling out within hours.

Meghan Markle's much-anticipated foray into fashion design has finally arrived.
