► Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has been praised for being the driving force behind an "amazing initiative" in which high street shoppers support unemployed women through their purchases.
At the flagship London store of John Lewis and Partners - one of the project's retail partners - Meghan launched the Smart Set capsule collection for Smart Works, a charity that provides training and interview clothes to women.
She had earlier suggested unemployed women would be boosted with "confidence and support" whenever a shopper bought an item from the collection, because for every piece purchased one will be donated to a Smart Works client.
Meghan, who is Smart Works' royal patron, approached a group of retailers and her designer friend Misha Nonoo to create a collection of timeless work pieces as she realised the right sizes or items were not always available for the charity's clients.
