Meghan Markle Announces First Royal Patronages

The four organisations the Duchess of Sussex has become a patron of have been announced by Kensington Palace.

The newlywed royal is now a patron of four organisations, Kensington Palace revealed in a press release on Thursday.

She takes on the title from the Queen, who has held the role for the past 45 years and has been associated with the theatre since its inception at the Old Vic in the 1960s.

Duchess Meghan Markle arrives for a visit to Smart Works on Thursday (January 10) in London, England.

These new responsibilities come eight months after Markle officially joined the royal family when she tied the knot with Prince Harry at the widely watched royal wedding in May.

New year, new job-actually, jobs-for Meghan Markle!

Considering the duchess's flair for fashion, it makes sense that she put her skills to good use during her visit to Smart Works. She will also be working with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the only accredited organisation representing higher education in the Commonwealth.

It's still early in 2019 - not even two weeks of the new year have gone by - but Meghan Markle is getting to work.

Though she tries to stay above the gossip and avoids reading the incessant stories about her, "some things are just hard to stay away from", the source added, insinuating that the newly-minted royal can't completely turn a blind eye to all it all.

As well as the Smart Works, the duchess will also become patron of the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the first and oldest global university network, and animal welfare charity Mayhew.

The hardworking Duchess of Sussex today celebrated becoming the patron of a women's charity supporting vulnerable job-seekers by meeting its clients.

Other organizations she has been a part of as a vocal feminist include One World Vision and United Nations Women.

Smart Works' chief executive Kate Stephens said of Markle: "She's really hands-on and involved, and has a natural empathy with people that we've been really impressed by; she's awesome".

During her tour of the headquarters, the Duchess spoke to a number of women who worked for, and who had benefited from, the outfitting service.
