Duchess Meghan Markle returns to work!

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.

Her capsule collection has been created in aid of Smart Works, which provides training, clothing and interviews for women in need. It benefits Smart Works, a United Kingdom charity for women of which Meghan is patron.

The collection's blazer and pants were designed and are available at Jigsaw; the tote bag "which fits all the essentials needed for an interview" is from John Lewis & Partners; a "classic dress, flattering to all sizes" is from Marks & Spencer; and the "perfect crisp white shirt" is by Misha Nonoo, according to Buckingham Palace.

Interested in Royal Family?

Today, a year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good.

"Today is about fashion not food, but this is a similar project because both have women helping women at their core", she said. Our Royal Patron, HRH The Duchess of Sussex, @sussexroyal and Smart Works have collaborated with leading British fashion designers @johnlewisandpartners, @marksandspencer, @insidejigsaw and @mishanonoo to create a flawless working wardrobe for our Smart Works clients. "On one of my visits, there was a rack of 40 or 50 lilac jackets". More than anything, she wanted to touch the lives of those in need and, in 1987, she opened the first HIV/AIDS unit in London that cared for patients who suffered from the illness.

"To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw, and my friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe".

The stardust of the royal connection, and Meghan's reputation as an elegant and stylish dresser, look set to drive sales. And, the totes from John Lewis & Partners are already sold out online.

For every item bought, one will be donated to the charity which Meghan became the patron of earlier this year. The final item is a black blazer from Jigsaw ($150).

At the event today, which is her first public appearance since giving birth to her son Archie, she wore two pieces from the collection-a white shirt and a pair of black pants.

With Princess Charlotte, who was born on 2 May 2015, Duchess Kate completed her last engagement on 27 March 2015, before returning to work on September 2015. The Duchess previously edited the September issue of British Vogue, however, she has remained on maternity leave. "In fact, if it's a cultural reference you're after, forget Cinderella - this is the story of Wonder Woman, ready to take on the world in her metaphorical and literal cape". "But ... this is not a fairytale".
