"The Duchess of Sussex will become Patron of four organisations that reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare", the tweet read.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex was on hand to give fashion tips on Wednesday when she visited the Smart Works HQ in west London. She will also be working with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the only accredited organisation representing higher education in the Commonwealth.

She has taken on honorary roles with Mayhew, Smart Works, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Kensington Palace said.

The Duchess of Sussex's royal patronages have been announced and they include two organisations that the Queen once looked over.


Meghan's first four patronages have been announced.

In more Royal Family news, Meghan Markle's baby "will change everything" between her and Kate Middleton, claims royal biographer. She chose classic minimalist pieces for Patsy Wardally, a 55-year-old who secured a role at Gatwick Airport with the help of the charity.

While Mayhew is a grassroots animal welfare organisation.

The National Theatre confirmed the Duchess had met privately with the director of the National Rufus Norris at the theatre past year, and is expected to carry out a public visit at the theatre at some point in the next few weeks.

Cape Town - Meghan was absolutely glowing during her first outing for 2019. "I very much look forward to working closely with Her Royal Highness in the years to come".

Then just weeks ago sources claimed Meghan, 37, was "fed-up" of not being able to "stand up for herself" as the demands of royal protocol dictate she keeps a dignified silence amid rumours of tension between the sisters-in-law.

Smart Works "helps unemployed women in their upcoming interviews by offering them an outfit to wear and 1:1 coaching", the Palace explained.


Previously, Markle has served as a U.N. Women's Advocate, Global Ambassador for World Vision and advocated for better access to feminine hygiene products in developing nations.
