Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) may be stepping back from her official royal duties, but the Duchess of Sussex (opens in new tab) is still dedicated to using her notoriety for good.

This week, Meghan stepped out for two private, charitable appearances in Canada, where she and son Archie Harrison are staying while Prince Harry (opens in new tab) is back in the United Kingdom, negotiating the terms of the Sussexes' exit (opens in new tab) from official royal life.

While Harry was across the pond (opens in new tab) handling all things royal, Meghan visited a women's center (opens in new tab) in Vancouver and made another appearance at Justice for Girls, an organization focused on ending violence, poverty and racism in the lives of teenage girls living in poverty.

According to fan fashion account @whatmeghanwore (opens in new tab), the Duchess may have recycled an item from her Suits wardrobe during her visit to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver.

The account points out that the cream, cable knit sweater from The Row appears to be the same one Meghan wore in 2013 on season three of her USA series  (opens in new tab)Suits (opens in new tab). And, yes, @whatmeghanwore shared the receipts to back up the theory:

It wouldn't be crazy to think that Meghan took a few pieces from her character's closet home with her. According to Suits costume designer Jolie Andreatta, Meghan always loved Rachel Zane's look IRL.

"Meghan and I loved Rachel's clothes. We’d always say that, if we could, we would live in Rachel’s clothes," Andreatta told Harper's Bazaar UK (opens in new tab). "Designing Rachel's look was like being a kid in a candy store."
