Serena Williams praises Meghan Markle for 'amazing' support

Serena Williams praises Meghan Markle for 'amazing' support

Meghan debuted her new capsule collection for Smart Works, a charity that provides interview clothes to unemployed women, as well as training. Meghan's outfit is actually one of the looks from the new Smart Set collection, with her $154 blouse by Misha and trousers by Jigsaw. HRH The Duchess of Sussex commented; "Since moving to the United Kingdom, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organisations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact".

The Duchess's fashion line was created to benefit Smart Works, her patronage that helps underprivileged women prepare for the job market. This initiative is supported by four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works to look and feel as they bravely venture in to what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market.

Markle last wore the jewels in October 2018, during her Royal Tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga with Prince Harry.

Explaining what she loved regarding the charity, she acknowledged: "There is in total a misunderstanding about Trim Works being a makeover, a manner level to of "before and after", where a woman is magically transformed into something greater than she used to be before".

She was present to watch Prince Harry play in the King Power Royal Charity Polo Match in Wokingham, UK, on 10 July, and shortly afterwards at Wimbledon alongside the Duchess of Cambridge on 13 July.

The Duchess and Smart Works collaborated with British fashion brands and designers including John Lewis and Partners, Marks and Spencer, Jigsaw and Misha Nonoo. "And that shows the kind of person that she is".

The British government said it was disappointed by the decision and confirmed it would appeal to the Supreme Court. Johnson ruled out a pact with Farage. "The mood is changing, the ice floes are cracking", he said.


Meghan matched this with a pair of mid-rise A-line black pants which cut off at the ankle.

All the items worn are from the collection.

Smart Works has helped more than 11,000 women and aims to dress 3,500 this year across its two London offices and additional spaces in Edinburgh, Manchester, Reading, Birmingham and Newcastle. Her first engagement? It's all about fashion.

"For every item bought during the sale of the collection, one will be donated to Smart Works - this one-for-one model allows customers to directly support the Smart Works women by playing a part in their successes".

Thursday's event officially marked the end of her maternity leave, and her second solo project as a Duchess. More than anything, she wanted to touch the lives of those in need and, in 1987, she opened the first HIV/AIDS unit in London that cared for patients who suffered from the illness.

Meghan's newest initiative to help the women's charity comes just days after she flew from London to NY to help cheer on her good friend Serena Williams in the U.S. Open women's final.
