Meghan Markle Just Shared Never-Before-Seen Pics From Her Pregnancy With Archie

Meghan Markle is one giving princess!

Thanks to new never-before-seen images, it's been revealed that the Duchess was up to tons of good during her maternity leave.

Take a look!

Good morning! It's a b-e-a-u-tiful day since we were just ~blessed~ with some never-before-seen photos of Meghan Markle!

They're back from when she was still pregnant with her and Prince Harry's son, Archie.

The captivating photos show that Duchess didn't just lounge around during her maternity leave.

She also took part in very important work with the Smart Works charity.

According to the Sussex Royal account, the non profit organization helps prepare women for the workforce by providing them with skills and clothes to feel "job-ready."

During her pregnancy, the Duchess spent many "quiet visits" with the organization.

While doing so, she discovered that a lot of the many donations the organization received included clothes that were "mismatched" and unsuitable for certain jobs.

Because of that, Markle decided to launch her own fashion line!

Also, check out that adorable bump!

"Launching this autumn, The Duchess will be supporting a collective to help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace."

The initiative will help women "as they bravely venture into what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market."

For the collection, Markle partnered with top tier English brands.

This includes John Lewis & Partners, Marks and Spencer, Misha Nonoo, and Jigsaw.

The premise, as the Duchess puts it, is simple: this is "charity as community."

The non-profit will follow a 1:1 model where an item purchased from the autumn collection becomes an item shared with the Smart Works organization.

Speaking of fashion, the Duchess just became the first guest editor of "British Vogue".

That's a huge first for the 103-year-old magazine!

Markle worked alongside editor in chief, Edward Enninful for the magazine's September issue, titled "Forces for Change".

That issue has always been highly polarized since it's recognized as the most important issue of the year for the fashion world.

This issue highlights important women who are making a huge difference in the world, such as Michelle Obama and Jane Goodall.

The cover features "a diverse selection of women from all walks of life, each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open mindedness."

The whole partnership came to be after Enniful approached Markle about being on the cover.

“I asked the question,” she said in her editor's letter.

“Edward… Instead of doing the cover, would you be open to me guest editing your September issue?”

Edward was completely on board with the idea!

Now, months later, the highly-anticipated issue is completed.

In the Instagram post promoting the issue, Meghan spoke candidly about the experience.

"Guest Editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring."

"To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created."

"A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover."

Thank you for saying “Yes!” - and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.” - The Duchess of Sussex

Go, Meg!
