Meghan Markle has stepped up her interest in business investment by backing a start-up making instant oat milk lattes.
The Duchess of Sussex has invested an undisclosed sum in Clevr Blends, which US chat show host Oprah Winfrey promoted on Instagram after being sent a Christmas basket of its products by the former Suits actress.
The duchess, who this year secured a multimillion-pound deal with Netflix, is building a portfolio of investments, but her involvement with Clevr Blends is the first to be made public.
It is thought she will focus on supporting female-founded companies.
In a statement, the duchess said: “This investment is in support of a passionate female entrepreneur who prioritises building community alongside her business.
