Meghan Markles handbag got REJECTED by charity and the story is hilarious

The Duchess of Sussex is absolutely glowing lately, not least at her latest public appearance visiting one of her debut royal patronage organisations.

Stepping out in a chic black midi dress and camel trench coat, she sported a Victoria Beckham handbag with a sizeable concealed mirror inside.

The pregnant Duchess arrived to speak to the Smart Works team at St. Charles Hospital in London yesterday, and joked about the rejection of one of her donated handbags.

The 37-year-old former actress told Juliet Hughes-Hallett during a tour;

“The last time I was here I suggested a purse and it was one that I had donated. And she didn’t like it!" she said, with a laugh.

"I was like, ‘Oh, OK.” I thought it was great," she commented.

At least she still has her impeccable style and sense of humour to match, as well as her generosity.

Smart Works is an organisation which helps women regain the skills, confidence and tools to succeed in job interviews.

Markle has become Royal Patron for the group, which also dresses women for interviews.

The former Suits star took the time to greet members, listen to their stories and spoke about the importance of helping other women during her visit

"It’s not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land, but really being a part of each other’s success stories as women, right?” she told the members.

“It’s not just hand-me-downs, it’s saying, ‘This is the blazer I wore that helped me win that interview'… So to know, as a woman coming in, that you have so many other women believing in you on all the next phases is the piece that makes it so special.”

Meghan is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry, and will also be busy working with The National Theatre, The Association of Commonwealth Universities and Mayhew as part of her Royal Patronage responsibilities.
