Meghan Markle wears Princess Diana's earrings & bracelet today - gift from Prince Harry

Back then, Meghan was still newly married to Prince Harry, and settling into her role as a royal; now, she's a new mother, and celebrating the launch of a charity initiative she spearheaded. At the time, the jewelry was particularly significant as it was the first official look she wore after announcing her pregnancy. In addition to the white shirt and black trousers, there is a crepe shift dress from Marks & Spencer that is available in three different colors, a one-button black blazer from Jigsaw, and a leather smart set tote bag from John Lewis & Partners that comes in black or tan.

She said the items donated to Smart Works would help give women the "confidence and support (they need) to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career".

One's own royal work-wear collection September 12, 2019 - 16:11 BST Sophie Hamilton The Duchess of Sussex has launched her own capsule collection with the charity Smart Works.

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out wearing her new charity clothing collection, as she urged women to "champion each other so we aim to succeed".

How did Meghan Markle break protocol to ask the same question that Princess Diana once did? Not only do they supply complete outfits for job interviews, Smart Works provides access to one-to-one interview training and the opportunity to join Smart Works Network, meeting every month to further their professional and personal development.

The royal shared a statement and a series of snaps on Instagram of Smart Works clients - women who have successfully found jobs with the help of Smart Works. It's also the same vein of work that my husband and I will continue doing, really strong community-based projects.

"When you walk into a Smart Works space, you're met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes".

'Meghan's squared shoulders as she makes a speech suggest the kind of solid levels of confidence that she always portrayed, while the hands cupped upward at rib level signal a relaxed form of openness and poise, ' explained Judi.

Jill Stanton, the women's and children's director at Marks & Spencer, where the machine-washable Smart Set tunic dress will retail at £19.50, said that "by offering our customers the opportunity to purchase a dress and gift one to a Smart Works client, together we are empowering and supporting women".

The Duchess of Sussex teamed up with United Kingdom retailers Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and designer Misha Nonoo on an affordable five-piece capsule.

Markle certainly knew who Princess Diana was before becoming a royal and, according to some reports, was even brought to tears as she watched the funeral on live television.

"There is often a misunderstanding about Smart Works being a makeover, a fashion show of "before and after", the duchess wrote in Vogue when she was guest editor last month.
