The Duchess of Sussex shows her other talents as she penned beautiful notes for women in search of employment.


Meghan Markle has shown her support for the charity Smart Works, that aids women in finding employment, by sending handwritten notes to the women who have embarked on the journey to finding work.

The Duchess of Sussex wrote personal notes to several of the ladies who have been equipped by the Smart Works charity showcasing her beautiful handwriting.

Smart Works took to social media to share the handwritten messages of encouragement that Markle wrote to the women, all in different stages of the job-hunting process.

Underneath the standard typed message that each note contained, Markle added a sentence or two of her own, practicing her near-perfect calligraphy skills to celebrate International Women's Day. One note reads:

“I wanted to offer my personal congratulations on landing a new position in public health – I can’t think of anything more important right now."



The U.K. organization Smart Works is one of four patronages that the duchess supports as part of her role as a royal family member. Despite stepping back from the responsibilities, Markle has chosen to maintain her support of the charity.

Focusing her resources on uplifting and equipping women, Smart Works, which works to impact unemployed women, is a good fit for the Duchess. Smart Works revealed:

"We are delighted to confirm that the Duchess of Sussex will remain a patron of Smart Works."



When Markle first became a member of the royal family, she was given three other patronages alongside Smart Works, including the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, and Mayhew.

Smart Works wasn't the only one to receive a letter from the royal in celebration of International Women's Day.

When it was confirmed that Prince Harry and his wife would not return as working members of the royal family, it was also announced that the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities would be returned to the Queen.



With her responsibility with the arts and education turned over to Queen Elizabeth, Markle held on to both Smart Works and Mayhew, an animal welfare charity.

The Duchess of Sussex's interest in animal welfare has been apparent for several years. When Markle was first announced as the organization's Royal Patron, they shared their excitement about working with her to invest in people and animals.


Smart Works wasn't the only one to receive a letter from the royal in celebration of International Women's Day as Markle also penned a heartfelt message for the Robert Clack Upper School.

The Duchess reflected on her visit to the school a year ago and thanked the students for the special memories that she shares with each of them. She also shared that she still wears the Debate Society team jacket that they gifted her.
