The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has been working with Smart Works for some time and isn’t letting the coronavirus current global situation stop her.
Smart Works Charity has shared a video of Meghan Markle offering interview advice to a young fan over video call.
The young girl was applying for an internship after finishing her degree in psychology.
Meghan told her:
‘I think you’re going to be fantastic,’
‘I just wanted to be able to call in and tell you best of luck and that my fingers are crossed for you.
‘There’s so much going on in the world right now and to be such a beacon of hope and focusing on getting though it and all the positivities.
‘You can get on the other side of this to and have such a great opportunity there.’
The young girl thanked Meghan for working with Smart Works and for ’empowering women’, which Meghan replied:
‘It’s easy to support them,’
‘You see how great they do and really how many people they help.
‘That’s what it’s all about. I’ve been really proud to be be able to be their patron.’

“It’s been such an honour to meet and learn from so many talented women in the Smart Works network over the years, and recently to see the amazing work they’re doing to adapt their programs to the reality of this pandemic. Their ability to continue to empower women and help them harness the confidence they need to succeed during this time is inspiring." – a message to our clients from the Duchess of Sussex. ⠀ Since moving to a virtual service six weeks ago we have delivered 200 hours of support to our clients. ⠀ From the volunteers who have been delivering coaching online to the staff working behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly – the energy, passion and commitment has been overwhelming. ⠀ We couldn’t do this without the support of our community and on the 27th March we were honoured that our patron, The Duchess of Sussex kindly volunteered some time to speak with one of our clients ahead of her interview, offering words of advice and encouragement. During the session the Duchess praised her for being “such a beacon of hope” and “focusing on getting through this”. ⠀ When asked about her patronage she said, “it’s a pleasure to support them, you see how great they do and how many people they help and that’s what it’s all about. I’ve been really proud to be able to be their patron, but it’s an easy yes when you have such incredible women helping you.” ⠀ After her session with the Duchess our client had this to say: ⠀ “I just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to you, the Duchess and the whole team at Smart Works for making this possible for women all around the UK, because to see such work is truly inspiring and uplifting. And thank you for the super useful interview tips – I will be using them for years to come!.” ⠀ The Smart Works service is available for any woman who is unemployed and has a confirmed job interview, referrals are made by our employment support partners including women’s charities and Job Centre Plus. Our mission is to help anyone who needs it, no matter the circumstances.
Meghan Markle has done a lot of work for Smart Works in the last year.
