Serena Williams Finally Opens Up About Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle at the launch of her Smart Works collection on Thursday in London

Introducing the new Smart Works collection, #TheSmartSet Over the a year ago, The Duchess of Sussex and @SmartWorksCharity have come together to launch a very special initiative. It follows the "1:1" model, which, according to the Duchess, will provide Smart Works clients with the basics one needs during the interview process. Gathered underneath a brilliant blue sky on the roof of John Louis and Partners on Oxford Street, the Duchess gave a revealing speech on how the initial idea took shape and eventually came into being.

Meghan made the trip - flying on a commercial plan, no less - to help cheer on her good friend, who was playing in the finals against Canadian Bianca Andreeschu. The duchess was joined on stage by Smart Works staff and clients, who recalled her "really getting stuck in" as a volunteer, putting together outfits and regaling clients with tales of her own first job serving frozen yogurt over the counter in Los Angeles.

And Smart Works has no shortage of success stories. "It is an experience you won't forget". So she approached her friend and designer Misha Nonoo, the retailers John Lewis and Marks & Spencer (chosen "because I have worn a lot of their clothes since I moved to the UK"), and also the Jigsaw chain because she was "really touched" by the message "in celebration of immigrant culture in this country" of the brand's award-winning Love Immigration campaign.

The designer is widely rumoured to be the matchmaker behind Prince Harry and Meghan's relationship. How she set it all up and talked about us being together and being there for each other is an unbelievable thing.


"I have to say I was so impressed by her", Robinson said in an interview with the Evening Standard in 2008. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, has officially ended her maternity leave after giving birth to son Archie in May, and marked the occasion by heading to a fun fashion show in London.

Meghan launched the range, aimed at helping Smart Works, which trains and dresses unemployed women for interviews, at a flagship London department store - and announced a leather tote bag accessory had already sold out.

Jigsaw's Smart Set suit has wool-blend pants at £120 and a matching Italian stretch gabardine blazer for £199.
