Meghan Markle stepped out for her first public event of the New Year on Thursday to visit one of her new patronages.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, visited Smart Works, which helps vulnerable and longterm unemployed women regain the skills and confidence to get into work. It is one of the four patronages that Meghan will champion throughout her public life.
Meghan, who is expecting her first child in the spring, wore a maternity dress (her first on a public outing!) — the Eliza Dress by Hatch. The $218 black midi-length dress features a subtle ribbed crew neckline detail and is made of stretch cotton viscose knit.
