Meghan Markle has been known to pitch in to help her friends, but her latest surprise appearance takes her generosity to another level. Markle appeared in an Instagram video for adaptogenic beverage brand Clevr, playfully hustling through roles in packing and order fulfillment, keeping the website updated, and lending a hand to the operations team.

“Damn, you’re keeping us BUSY right now!” the caption with the video reads. “Had to call in some reinforcements.”

The reinforcements being…Markle, it would appear. She lurks in the background of several shots in various disguises, packing boxes and tapping away at a computer, and walks through another frame wearing sunglasses and fistbumping a “co-worker” (fauxworker?) in the video. She may not actually be on the company’s day-to-day payroll, but she’s a noted fan and investor in the brand, which specializes in wellness-centric teas and superfood lattes.

Markle is pictured on the brand’s homepage, arm slung over co-founder Hannah Mendoza’s shoulders, alongside a testimonial attributed to “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex”: “One of my favorite ways to start and end each day.”

She’s not the only celebrity fan as Oprah has included Clevr on her Favorite Things list two times, writing in 2021, “​​My neighbor Meghan (yes, that one) introduced me to this woman-led wellness brand. Not a day goes by without me sipping on the golden latte from this kit, which also comes with chai latte mix and a little frother. You can add the mixes to smoothies for a flavor boost, too”

Only time will tell whether we’ll see Queen O following in her neighbor’s footsteps and packing boxes of latte powder anytime soon.
