Pregnant Meghan Markle Steps Out As Latest Royal Patron In Interesting Shoes She Had Flaunted Once Before
Style is Meghan Markle’s forte. There is no doubt about that, and the fact that she is dressing other women for success is remarkable.
Yesterday, Kensington Palace announced in a series of tweets that the Duchess of Sussex joined the ranks of other royals to become a patron of some organizations that reflect the core values of the country and her own interests.
The lucky organizations to be under her purview are the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Mayhew and Smart Works.

Being an advocate for women, Meghan stepped up to the occasion by showing up at Smart Works headquarters - an organization committed to helping unemployed women secure jobs - just hours after the announcement.
The organization coaches women, prepares them for interviews and even dresses them up for the occasion in clothes they get to keep.
The 37-year-old pregnant royal arrived in a gorgeous number: a navy blue gown by Hatch that showed off her growing belly and a brown coat by Oscar de la Renta . Her earrings were Kimai.
The shoes, on the other hand, were quite unusual because of the tasteful cow print but it also had an interesting twist to it.
They were Gianvito Rossi cow print pumps, which were among the collection of shoes she flaunted to her fans on Instagram before her royal palace days.
Her ensemble got fans talking. Some of them appreciated the look while others questioned the propriety of the outfit for the occasion.

Killer shoes. I may have saw her wear it in a premier somewhere— Miriam088 (@Miriam0882) January 10, 2019
Meanwhile, Meghan took to helping the women select appropriate outfits when she visited. She helped a 56-year-old woman pick a lovely brown, amongst others.
While addressing the staff and volunteer, she said:
“It's not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land. It's being part of each other’s success stories as women.”
Speaking to a group of women, Meghan: “It’s not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land, it's really being part of each other's success stories as women, right? It’s not just hand me downs, it's saying this is the blazer I wore that helped me win that interview”— Roya Nikkhah (@RoyaNikkhah) January 10, 2019
In the end, we are glad that she is making a difference in people’s lives. We look forward to seeing the wonderful things she does with each organization under her influence.
