Meghan Markle Is Launching a Charity Clothing Line to Help Working Women in Need: ‘We Are in it Together’
She’s doing it all! Just when we thought Meghan Markle couldn’t be more busy, she surprises us with a new project — an upcoming clothing line.
The 37-year-old collaborated with British department stores Marks & Spencer and John Lewis, according to reporter and royal expert Omid Scobie. The duchess guest edited British Vogue’s September issue, and it turns out that’s where she announced she’s launching the line, which consists of workwear. And of course, it isn’t just your typical clothing line. It’s for a good cause.
“Duchess Meghan has revealed she has partnered with @marksandspence, @jlandpartners, @InsideJigsaw and friend @mishanonoo to launch a capsule collection of workwear to benefit @SmartWorksHQ, the nationwide charity that helps unemployed and vulnerable women back into the workplace,” Omid tweeted on Tuesday, July 30.
The journalist also revealed an excerpt of what Meghan reportedly wrote in the magazine issue about the clothing line. “The collection, launching later this year, will sell on a one-for-one basis. ‘For each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to charity,’ Meghan writes in @BritishVogue. ‘Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together,’” he tweeted. Yes, girl!
With just a little over a year as part of the royal family, Meghan is breaking barriers left and right. The former actress is British Vogue’s first-ever guest editor in its 103-year history. The brunette beauty worked on the magazine issue while pregnant with her son, Archie, whom she welcomed into the world with Prince Harry in May.
Meghan couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity and got candid about what the experience was like. “Guest Editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created,” she said, according to her Instagram account, Royal Sussex.
“A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavor, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover,” she continued. “Thank you for saying ‘Yes!’ — and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.”
Congrats on everything, Meg!
