Meghan Markle’s special anniversary for one of her best-known royal patronages has delighted royal commentators. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed how the Duchess of Sussex celebrated the date. They also pointed out a hidden message in the royal’s video call background that hinted at her and Prince Harry’s time in the US.

Ms Bowie told listeners: “It’s been one year since Meghan launched her Capsule Collection for her royal patronage, SmartWorks.

“It’s a charity which helps women find employment by providing coaching tips and professional attire for their job interviews.

“She toasted the occasion with a Zoom call with three clients.

“All three of which were a success story for the organisation.”

On the call, the Duchess told the clients: “As women, so often it’s easy to forget all of your skills and your assets.

“Not that they’re not there, but you need someone sometimes to point them out for you.

“The women who volunteer at Smart Works, especially with the mentor programme, are not pointing out something that doesn’t exist.

“They’re seeing it in you for the first time. I think that is critical.”

Meghan added: “People can say that so much of Smart Works is about the clothes themselves but it’s really not.

“It’s the confidence, it’s what is built within, that is the piece that you walk out of that room with and walk into the interview with.”

Ms Fiorito praised the royal’s speech: “Hear, hear! I love that and I think that got picked up in quite a few places because confidence truly is the best accessory.”

She continued: “But as a reminder Meghan actually revealed via British Vogue last year that she tapped Marks and Spencer’s, Jigsaw and her pal Misha Nonoo to design the Capsule Collection of work basics.

“She also donated one item to SmartWorks for every item purchased by a customer.

“What I loved the most was the glimpse of her Zoom set-up which on the mantle had a very impactful piece of artwork.

“There was an ‘I Love You California’ bear print on the mantle piece. Not very subtle.

“I feel like she’s so happy to be home.”
