We love Meghan Markle’s style and soon you’ll be able to pick up her own collection on the high street.

The Duchess of Sussex is teaming up with M&S, John Lewis and Jigsaw to launch a workwear collection in aid of charity.

The line will help Smart Works – one of the charities she is a patron for since January 2019.

Smart Works help women get back into the workplace by providing clothes and giving them coaching to help them with job interviews.

In the September issue of Vogue she guest edited, Meghan explained: ‘I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.’

For every item purchased from the collection, one is donated to the Smart Works too.

Meghan added: ‘Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.’

The collection will be released in September but the pieces haven’t been revealed yet but expect a range of classic and adaptable workwear looks.

She explained that although Smart Works do amazing work helping women, the clothing they have doesn’t always fit together.

In Vogue, she says: ‘When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes.

‘Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colours, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.’

Both John Lewis and M&S have worked with Smart Works before but this latest collaboration is sure to be extremely popular with the Duchess being involved.

Meghan is already a big fan of M&S and is sometimes spotted wearing outfits from the store.

In January last year, she wore a classic black round-neck bell sleeve jumper and she wore a double crepe bodycon dress from the brand in November 2018.
