The “generously-sized bag” has an open-top design with “plenty of room to fit whatever you need to get you through the working day”.

It has a large exterior slip pocket and two phone-sized slip pockets, one card slot and a zipped pocket inside, and two shoulder straps and a detachable and adjustable crossbody strap.

Each retailer will only stock its own Smart Set piece, rather than the full collection, although John Lewis will also sell the Jigsaw suit.

The collection quickly won praise from fans of Meghan’s style.

MadAboutMeghan tweeted: “Really nice price point, selection of sizes, regular & petite sizing. Perfect pieces for a professional wardrobe.” described the tote bag as “gorgeous”.

A quote from the duchess – “Not a handout, a hand held” – accompanies the description of the items on the John Lewis and M&S websites.

The Smart Works charity provides training and interview clothes for unemployed women in need.

Meghan is its patron and has a long-standing commitment to supporting women’s empowerment.
