Fashion and royal fans were given a sneak peak of the Duchess of Sussex’s new clothing line on Instagram this evening.
Meghan Markle posted a behind the scenes look at a shoot promoting the new collection on the Instagram page she jointly runs with Prince Harry .
With a funky section from Bill Withers’ Lovely Day in the background, the video shows the fashion conscious royal hugging a succession of models, crew members and friends.
The collection was announced in July and consists of work wear.
As well as providing stylish office outfits, the capsule collection will benefit Smart Works – a charity Meghan is a patron of that helps underprivileged women secure employment.
When the line was first teased via an Instagram post it was published alongside four previously unseen images of the former Suits actor.
In the caption, it said that some of the women being helped through Smart Works were not always suited and booted as stylishly as they could be, leading Meghan to devise the idea for a new collection.
Under the photos the royal couple posted: “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.
“This initiative is supported by four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works to look and feel 100 as they bravely venture in to what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market.”
The fashion line will be realised in conjunction with Meghan’s fashion designer friend Misha Nonoo as well as Marks and Spencer, John Lewis and Jigsaw.
For every item bought from the collection one will be donated to a woman being helped through Smart Works because, the post adds, “not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story; it reminds us we are in it together.”
The couple have made royal ground when it comes to the relaxed and personal approach they have adopted in their social media use.
Amidst criticism of the Duke and Duchess’s use of a private jet last week, the Sussex Royal Instagram account sprang into action to spread a little inspiration,.
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world,” the page posted, quoting Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Beneath a chatty caption read: “An inspiring quote for the day – wishing you a wonderful week ahead!”
