A shirt, trousers, blazer, dress and bag are included in the range. With every sale, one will be donated to Smart Works.

The Duchess became a patron of Smart Works in January and has visited their office in a public and private capacity.

“For each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to charity,” Meghan revealed in the September issue of British Vogue, which she guest edited.

She adds: “Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
