Although Meghan Markle is not a working royal anymore, she did make an appearance this week to support one the charities of which she is a patron: Smart Works, which helps vulnerable women re-enter the work force.

The royal logged on via Zoom to help coach a young woman applying for a job, giving her interview tips and so on.

She said, 'It’s been such an honour to meet and learn from so many talented women in the Smart Works network over the years, and recently to see the amazing work they’re doing to adapt their programs to the reality of this pandemic. Their ability to continue to empower women and help them harness the confidence they need to succeed during this time is inspiring.'

During the call, in which Meghan looked happy and confident, she layered a couple of pretty gold necklaces, one of which is meant to ward off negative vibes.

The charm necklace by jewellery brand Edge of Ember is 'inspired by vintage coins found in Asia, these modern-day talismans carry icons of good fortune. The Visionary Necklace bears a blue topaz evil eye to protects its wearer from negative vibes. It's got your back.'

It's not the first time the Duchess has worn designs by the brand, as she wore their Kismet necklace (which brings good luck) and Wave earrings for her last royal appearance in London.

Meghan loves wearing jewellery with a meaning, only recently wearing a love pendant as a special tribute to baby Archie.

She also has a diamond eternity ring which features three birthstones for her, her son and Prince Harry.

So sweet.

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
