Would you reject a handbag donated by the Duchess of Sussex? That’s what one woman did on a previous visit to charity Smart Works.
Meghan Markle – who has just become patron of the organisation – laughed as she told the story to charity staff.
Smart Works provides high-quality clothes and one-to-one interview preparation to long-term unemployed women.
The duchess helped to pick out jewellery, handbags and coats.
It’s one of the duchess’ first solo patronages. Four were revealed by Kensington Palace this week.
