Meghan Markle shared never-before-seen pregnancy photos as she promotes a UK-based charity that helps unemployed women in their efforts to get back into the workforce.
The duchess shared the photos of her “quiet” visits to the charity Smart Works on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, with the caption saying she “was moved by the impactful work being done” to equip women with the skills and attire they need to feel “job-ready.”
“Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily ‘suit’ the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview,” the caption reads.
“As a result, launching this autumn, The Duchess will be supporting a collective to help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace.”

In addition to being the guest-editor for the September issue of British Vogue, Markle also announced that she is planning on launching a workwear collection to support Smart Works.
She said she is working with four brands to create the collection who, according to the caption, “have come together to work towards this united force for good”: Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw, and Misha Nonoo.
“They will follow the 1:1 model where an item from the collection purchased is an item shared with a woman of Smart Works because ‘not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story; it reminds us we are in it together,'” Markle wrote in a piece for this month’s British Vogue, as written in the caption.
