Meghan Markle's fashion tips as new patron of Smart Works

Would you reject a donated handbag from 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.
