On Thursday, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle is now a royal patron of Smart Works, an organisation that helps long-term unemployed women regain the tools and skills needed to rejoin the workforce.

In-depth style consultations are a major part of the services offered by Smart Works to prepare its participants for job interviews, and a video shared by The Royal Family Channel shows the duchess overseeing one of the sessions on Thursday.

In another video shared by Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer, Markle can be seen sorting through some accessories while one of the women compliments Markle’s own earrings. Markle responds by saying, “Thank you, I love this brand.”

The duchess was wearing the $US403 (£315 GBP) Felicity earrings by Kimai, a brand that is dedicated to ethically sourcing the diamonds used in its jewellery. Markle has previously worn brands like Outland Denim and Rothy’s, proving that sustainable fashion is becoming a staple in her royal wardrobe.
