Meghan made patron of National Theatre

Meghan made patron of National Theatre

As the announcement of Meghan's new patronage was made, it was revealed that the Duchess of Sussex had visited the organisation several times over the a year ago, working with numerous women approaching the organisation for support and seeing them go on to succeed.

Kensington Palace announced Meghan's official patronages Thursday morning in a statement.

Her grandmother-in-law, the Queen, has given her not one, but four shiny new gigs, Kensington Palace announced Thursday morning in a series of tweets. "It's not some honorary thing, she really cares", she said.

Each organization focuses on something the soon-to-be-mom is passionate about, from empowering young women to supporting education for young girls - and of course, she's not staying away from her love for animals.

It was set up in 2013 with the aim of providing long term unemployed women with the tools they need to get the job they want.

She has a background in TV and the arts, and has campaigned on gender inequality and animal rights throughout her life.

"It is a privilege to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as our new Patron. Mayhew works to improve the lives of dogs, cats and the people in our community". Queen Elizabeth gifted the estate to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Her mom, Doria Ragland, flew from her home in Los Angeles to the United Kingdom to be with her daughter for the launch of the cookbook.

"So to know, as a woman coming in, I would imagine, (knowing) that you have so many others believing in you, on all the next phases, is the piece that makes it so special".

Meghan Markle has been carrying out her royal duties alongside Prince Harry with a smile on her face.

In Feb. 2012, Kate made her first patronage visit to the National Portrait Gallery for a private viewing of the works of artist Lucian Freud.

The couple are awaiting renovations to be completed on their new home, "Apartment 1" at Kensington Palace - technically a wing of the palace with 21 rooms and adjoining doors to "Apartment 1A" (which belongs to Will and Kate).
