A spokesman for John Lewis has said: “For those customers who are interested in buying a bag and consequently having another one donated to Smart Works, we urge them to go into one of our shops where they can purchase a Smart Set bag today.
“If that isn’t possible, more stock will be on our website next week.
“Sales of the tote bag anywhere else do not lead to a charity donation.”
A style expert revealed to Express.co.uk the signs that Meghan was involved thoroughly in the design process of the Smart Set collection.
Dominique St. John, a fashion PR expert, said: “You can notice that Meghan was very much involved in the making of the collection because the choice of clothing in her line reflects the clothing that she wears to her official engagements.
“For example, we saw her sport a similar white shirt from Misha Nonoo on her first official appearance with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
“We also saw her look effortlessly chic in a familiar trouser suit combination when she stepped out to the Endeavour Awards in London.
“Just like with every piece of clothing that Meghan Markle wears, it sells out immediately. However, this time Meghan has been involved in the design process.”
Stylish Meghan Markle wore Princess Diana’s jewellery recently to reveal the new collection.
Duchess of Sussex wore a pair of butterfly earrings and a gold bracelet which belonged to Prince Harry’s mum.
She also sported a gold and blue stone bangle on her wrist – another item from Diana’s personal collection.
