Meghan Markle makes surprise appearance at photoshoot promoting charity capsule collection [Video]
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, shared a glimpse of her highly anticipated charity capsule collection of work-appropriate attire in two Instagram Story videos yesterday.
The clips show the royal-turned-designer behind the scenes at a photoshoot promoting her range of work attire, which launches this autumn. In the footage, the duchess is seen hugging models, working with photographers, and smiling proudly from the sidelines.
“Meghan surprised everyone at Smart Works when she showed up for the shoot,” which took place today in London, a source tells BAZAAR.com.
Following the theme of office-inspired fashion, Meghan wore a blue-and-white-striped button-down by Frank & Eileen, skinny jeans, and nude pumps for the shoot.

Meghan is collaborating with the brands Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Jigsaw, and Misha Nonoo for the collection. The initiative will support the charity Smart Works, one of her royal patronages, which helps women entering the workforce by helping them dress for jobs or prepare for interviews.
The pieces in Meghan’s capsule will sell on a “one-for-one” basis, meaning an item is donated for each item purchased. “Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together,” the Duchess of Sussex explained in British Vogue in July, when she first unveiled the project.
