The new mom showed off her slim figure as she arrived at the collection’s presentation. The clothing line was created for Smart Works Charity and will be stocked for a limited time in three British stores.

But it appears that Meghan is not being original

Meghan Markle became a patron of Smart Works Charity in January and around that time the idea to create a capsule collection came to her mind. The Duchess’ range has appeared in John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, and Jigsaw.

However, Meghan is not the only royal who worked with Jigsaw. As it turns out, the brand has a connection with Kate Middleton as well.

The Duchess of Cambridge worked for Jigsaw for under a year before she got engaged with Prince William. Royal author Katie Nicholl writes in her 2010 book William and Harry:

At Jigsaw Kate was allowed to work a four-day week, which enabled her to enjoy long weekends with William.

Another author, Marcia Moody, added that the Duchess not only worked for the clothing brand but she also co-designed a ‘charm necklace’ with a jewelry designer, which was sold for £57 each.

The necklace represented Kate’s taste just like Meghan’s clothing collection represents her style. However, both Duchesses have to follow different rules when it comes to fashion.

For example, Meghan can get away with not wearing tights in public while Kate is obliged to put them on. How strange royal protocol can be!
