Combining her passion for fashion and philanthropy, Meghan Markle has created a capsule workwear collection in aid of women's charity Smart Works.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is famed for her chic style, revealed to British Vogue in September that she has partnered with various fashion brands in a bid to help the charity which is so close to her heart.

Banking on the all-powerful 'Meghan Effect' - so powerful in fact that Lyst reports Meghan's 2019 fashion choices have lead to an average increase in interest of 119 per cent - we have no doubt that the venture will be a successful one.

But before we start predicting sales figures, let's take a closer look at what the royal's new capsule collection entails.
