These Are All Four of Meghan Markle's Royal Patronages

These Are All Four of Meghan Markle's Royal Patronages

Amanda also made sure to say that there isn't any official research to credit this but again royal fans are very intrigued to see whether Meghan will have a boy or girl.

The duchess also will work to support Smart Works, a charity that helps unemployed women with interview preparation and styling sessions (complete with free clothing), as well as with Mayhew, an global animal welfare charity. In addition to her focus on supporting women through Smart Works, Prince Harry's wife is also sharing her passion for the arts, access to education, and animal welfare through her work as a duchess.

Although Kate, who celebrated her 37th birthday on Wednesday, has since taken on many more patronages aligned with her interests in children's well-being, sports and art since 2012, she and Meghan both initially announced four charitable organization that they would back in their royal lives.

Meghan Markle is "miserable" and "stressed" in her new role as the Duchess of Sussex, US reports have claimed.

Hollywood insiders recently told Vanity Fair that Meghan is "not a person you can actually be friends with" and that the "insanely smart" Duchess "was always to become a household name". Two patronages have been handed over to the former actress from Queen Elizabeth, who served a patron to the associations for decades - The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.




Kensington Palace have now sought to regain control of the announcement, officially revealing Meghan's first four patronages on Thursday, which are the first official royal responsibilities given to her since her marriage to Prince Harry eight months ago.

In 2016 the Queen, now aged 92, stepped down as patron from more than 20 national organisations, handing on the roles to other members of the royal family.

"It's not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land, but really being a part of each other's success stories as women, right?" she told the group.

The National Theatre was given permission to add the prefix Royal to its name in 1988, to mark its 25th birthday, but it has not changed its moniker.

The Queen previously was patron of the National Theatre and the ACU, but has now passed them on to the duchess. The Duchess shares our deeply-held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life.
