Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle to become new National Theatre Royal Patron

Despite the claims Meghan is feeling down, she and Harry are expecting their first child in spring.

Two of the patronages - for the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities - have been passed on to the duchess by Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, who has held them for 45 and 33 years respectively.

Once inside, the fashionista took a hands-on approach as she helped women style an outfit, down to the accessories.At Smart Works, each woman gets a styling session before their first interview and go home with a full outfit to keep.

Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan would be visiting the Smart Works today, and will be making public visits to the other three organisations over the coming weeks.

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 previous year, working with numerous women approaching the organisation for support and seeing them go on to succeed.

Meghan Markle has four new jobs.

Markle continues sharing her passion for the arts, access to education, and animal welfare through her work as a duchess. "I very much look forward to working closely with Her Royal Highness in the years to come".

It said: "We're thrilled that HRH shares our commitment to improving the lives of animals and people, and are excited to make a difference together".

Royal patronages are not necessarily for life and the younger royals usually have fewer patronages than older royals, as they steadily acquire more.

Unsurprisingly, Prince Harry is now said to "feel responsible for Meghan being so miserable" after previous reports claimed he was already "frustrated" that he could not protect his wife from public scrutiny.

For Thursday's visit to Smart Works, an organisation that assists in clothing and coaching women searching for jobs, the mum to be stayed toasty in a cotton-twill Oscar de la Renta coat, worn over a black Hatch dress with stretch, and paired with Gianvito Rossi heels.

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.

And now, over 12 hours later, Kensington Palace has revealed the news itself.
