Meghan Markle famously once said, “I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches – I wanted to be a woman who works”. And since her fairytale wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, the Californian-born British royal hasn’t stopped working, except perhaps while she was on maternity leave.

In addition to her new motherhood duties raising baby Archie, she’s also launched a cookbook, is youth ambassador to the Commonwealth alongside Prince Harry, guest edited the September issue of British Vogue and is involved in tons of charity work including UK mental health texting service Give Us A Shout.

She is also working with several clothing brands to launch a collection later this year for the charity Smart Works, to support unemployed and disadvantaged women.
