Meghan Markle has delighted royals with never-before-seen images from when she was pregnant with baby Archie – and it’s for a great cause.
The mum-of-one shared a behind-the-scenes video earlier this week to announce her role as guest editor of British Vogue, but now she’s shared even more snaps from when she was expecting her first baby.
The new pictures were shared on Harry and Meghan’s official Instagram account, Sussex Royal, as part of their ‘Spotlight’ series where they focus on one charity.
This time the ‘spotlight’ was on Smart Works, the charity Meghan is a patron of and will be supporting with a fashion line that will be launching later this year at Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Partners, Misha Nonoo and Jigsaw.
In the pictures shared, a heavily pregnant Meghan is seen hard at work while speaking to the people behind the organisation, during her ‘quiet visits’ to the charity.
The caption read: ‘After quiet visits to Smartworks over the last year, The Duchess was moved by the impactful work being done by this non profit organisation that helps women into the workforce, equipping them with both the skills and clothes they need to feel job-ready.
‘Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily “suit” the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview.’
As a result of Meghan’s work, the brands involved will donate one item to the charity every time the same item is purchased.
Fans of the Sussex family were delighted to see more pictures of Meghan’s baby bump, with some joking that Archie started working at a very young age.
‘This is awesome! I love getting behind the scenes footage of her in action. 🤩 she is gorgeous!’, one said.
Another wrote: ‘King Archie you are the most worked royal baby in history. FYI I hope you are ready for your little twin sisters next year lol😍😍😍😍’.
A third added: ‘😭😭😭 Good job Meghan. Baby Archie, we see you.’
A fourth commented: ‘So creative! and lovely to see Meghan working so hard and visiting her patronages while she was heavily pregnant with little Archie 😊❤’.
