Meghan Markle beams with joy in photo of ‘incredibly special moment’ shared by Smart Works charity

MEGHAN Markle is seen beaming in a snap posted by charity Smart Works to mark nearly a year of working with the Duchess.

The charity shared a behind-the-scenes snap of the Duchess of Sussex on their Instagram account, where they praised her for her hard work.

Last January the 38-year-old revealed she was becoming a patron of the charity, which helps women back into the world of work.

The mum-of-one visited the organisation a number of times, and released a clothing capsule at M&S, John Lewis and Jigsaw, called The Smart Set Capsule Collection.

In recognition of her patronage, Smart Works shared a never-before-seen snap of a smiling Meghan, as part of their '12 days of Smart Works’.

The image had a glittering 11 on it – also marking the number of months the former actress has worked with the charity.

Smart Works said: “11 months of support from our Royal Patron.”

“In January 2019, we were thrilled to announce HRH The Duchess of Sussex as the Royal Patron of Smart Works.

“The Duchess is a natural champion of our service; her compassion and kindness towards our clients is inspirational and we are so grateful for her commitment to helping women in need across the UK.

“We have shared some incredibly special moments with The Duchess over the past eleven months.

“As well as dressing and coaching our clients, she has supported and spread the word about Smart Works in the seminal issue of British Vogue #ForcesforChange and through The Smart Set Capsule Collection.

“Stay tuned to our feed over the next few days to learn about the impact of #TheSmartSet in Smart Works centres.”

In the snap Meghan can be seen dressed in a camel coat, with her hair scraped back into a bun with drop earrings.

The post has racked up thousands of likes, as people praised Meghan for her work.

Commenting online, one person said: “Congratulations on all your achievements with the Duchess of Sussex and the ladies you've managed help.

“There couldn't have been a better royal patron for this charity.”

Someone else wrote: “Duchess Meghan has been great. I love this initiative. I purchased a shirt & dress from the smart set collection.”

A third added: “Duchess Meghan is a phenomenal person and she's the perfect patron for such an amazing organization that puts women back into the workforce.”

While this person thought: “We know The Duchess of Sussex doesn’t do anything halfway.

“You all got a great Patron and great champion for your
cause. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for all of you.”

Earlier this week another unseen photo of Meghan was shared, from her time volunteering in Toronto.

The Duchess spent time with the St Felix Centre when she lived in the city, while filming legal drama Suits.

Sharing the image to Instagram, which shows Meghan at the back wearing a baseball cap, they said: “We feel very grateful and honoured to have been highlighted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle, as one of 12 charities doing important work worldwide. 

“This photo has Meghan volunteering in our kitchen.

“Meghan Markle was an active supporter and volunteer of St. Felix Centre during her time living in the city while working on Suits. 

“She volunteered on a regular basis in our kitchen as part of our Community Meals Program.”

And the briefcase she used in Deal Or No Deal has been listed for auction.

Meanwhile Meghan Markle’s friend was ordered to remove ‘damaging’ photos of the duchess she was using to flog her jewellery.
