Meghan Markle is a working momma now!!
The new momma
A source shared with Us Weekly (below):
“Meghan had mixed feelings about going back to work. She loves motherhood and was nervous about leaving Archie.”
Aww!! Totally understandable for a new momma to feel that way. Good thing the whole family is making a trip to Africa together for work and hopefully some play!
Ch-ch-check out what the “career girl at heart” had to say during her return to the working world (below):

Introducing the new Smart Works collection, #TheSmartSet Over the last year, The Duchess of Sussex and @SmartWorksCharity have come together to launch a very special initiative. Following numerous visits to the charity, The Duchess, who is patron of Smart Works, noticed an underlying issue…While the donations were plentiful, the right sizes and classic wardrobe staples were not always available. Since then – having partnered with leading British fashion designers @InsideJigsaw, @JohnLewisandPartners, @MarksandSpencer and @MishaNonoo – The Duchess has championed the launch of a new Smart Works capsule collection that will help properly equip these women for their next chapter. • “When you buy any item in the Smart Set Capsule Collection for Smart Works, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client, and with it, the confidence and support she needs to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career.” – The Duchess of Sussex Created in September 2013 with the goal to help unemployed women regain the confidence that may have been blurred during more difficult times, Smart Works provides invaluable support in these women’s return to employment and towards transforming their lives. Not only do they supply complete outfits for job interviews, Smart Works provides access to one-to-one interview training and the opportunity to join Smart Works Network, meeting every month to further their professional and personal development. #TheSmartSet collection – that features a shirt, trousers, blazer, dress and bag – will be on sale for two weeks starting today. Please support the women of Smart Works by purchasing one of the pieces and being part of another woman’s success story. Video ©️ SussexRoyal / Photo ©️ @JennyZarins
While she may be missing her boys while she’s hard at work, she is doing something she’s really passionate about! The insider continued (below):
“Meghan always loved fashion, and as a true feminist, empowering other women is something she really values.”
In a statement, the former Suits star elaborated (below) a bit more on the mission:
“Since moving to the UK, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organizations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact.
When you buy any item in the Smart Set Capsule Collection for Smart Works, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client, and with it, the confidence and support she needs to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career.”
We’re sure Prince Harry is super supportive of what she’s doing, and he’s not the only one! The confidant shared (below):
“The Queen is very supportive of Meghan’s comeback.”
So who’s looking after the little one during all of this? Doria Ragland, Meghan’s momma, is planning to spend more time across the pond with her grandson to help out, but for now relies on her phone to stay in touch, the insider shared:
“They have a great mother-daughter relationship, and FaceTime every day.”
Hang in there Meg, you’ve got this!!
