Meghan Markle eagerly started on her patronages as she helped women get outfit ready for job interviews.


Only a few hours after Kensington Palace announced the Duchess of Sussex’s new four patronages, she visited the Smart Works team at St. Charles Hospital in London to get started.


With a very prominent baby bump, Meghan arrived at the hospital wearing a black Hatch maternity dress, black and white animal printed heels, an Oscar de la Renta trench coat and Kimai earrings.

The organization, Smart Works outfit women with professional looking clothes so they can look their best for job interviews. Their specific aim is to “help long-term unemployed and vulnerable women regain the skills, confidence, and tools to succeed at job interviews, return to employment and transform their lives.”


37-year-old Meghan immediately got stuck in and spoke to a group of women involved in the women’s charity about the importance of supporting others and looking professional as Meghan said:

"It’s not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land, but really being a part of each other’s success stories as women, right? It’s not just hand-me-downs, it’s saying, ‘This is the blazer I wore that helped me win that interview'… So to know, as a woman coming in, that you have had so many other women believing in you on all the next phases is the piece that makes it so special.”

After the Duchess spoke with the group of woman she helped 56-year-old Patsy Wardally get ready for her interview. Dressed up in a stylish red printed dress and draped tan coat, Patsy looked prepared for anything.


Meghan loves sharing her passion for the arts, animal welfare, and education through her work, so her patronages suit her perfectly. The four include Smart Works, The Association of Commonwealth Universities, the National Theatre and animal group Mayhew.

With Meghan’s first patronages announced, it shows an eagerness to get involved in a wide range of interests and important causes.

Very much like Kate, who took on her first patronage six months after she and Prince William wed, the Duchess of Sussex also expressed her passion for causes involving the arts and the upliftment and growth of primarily women and children.


But Kate has taken on many since and range from organizations supporting children and young people to the sporting initiatives, and now sports an impressive and diverse list of royal patronages.

In the years to come, it is likely that Meghan would draw inspiration from Kate, who wholeheartedly support a multitude of organizations and charities.


After recent outings, where Meghan’s baby bump could clearly be seen, renewed speculation about her due date arose. Many are of the opinion that the Dutchess might be over six months pregnant already, which will bring her due date up by about six weeks.

And with an official, due date still not released fans will just have to wait and see when Meghan and Prince Harry’s firstborn will arrive.
