It’s been almost one month since Duchess Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, exited as senior royals. Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, the former actress reconnected with Smart Works, an organization in the UK.

On Twitter, the charity shared a video of Meghan speaking to one of their clients. The organization assists women in finding employment by equipping them with coaching tips and professional attire for their job interviews.

Speaking to the woman, the Duchess had some words of advice and encouragement for her. It was reported that she made a video call from Los Angeles.

She and her husband moved to their new home in the US from Canada last month. The young couple now lives there with their son Archie.

COACHING SOME WOMEN

Meghan has actually visited the organization several times. Some clients have been lucky enough to receive some coaching by the royal before attending their job interviews.

LAUNCHING A COLLECTION

Last September, she stepped out for her first official post-maternity leave engagement to launch the Smart Works capsule collection in London. The clothing line benefits the charity by donating one item to them when another is bought.
