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


The Duchess of Sussex spent ten years working in television but her training is in theatre.

As for her other two official new royal patron roles, it looks like they're uniquely suited to Markle's causes, as the Palace puts it.

Meghan Markle crossed off another royal milestone when she visited Smart Works on Thursday, marking her first patronage outing.

Rufus Norris, director of the National Theatre said: "It is a privilege to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as our new patron".

The Queen has passed on two patronages to Meghan, relinquishing her formal connection with the National Theatre after 45 years, and with the Association of Commonwealth Universities following more than three decades. According to the palace, "Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate of accessible education". She has taken on more charity work on her plate since.

For some time now, royal fans have been obsessing over when Meghan Markle will give birth and many believe her due date is next month, more on that here.

Meghan's big announcement also just happened to slip out on her sister-in-law Kate Middleton's 37th birthday. In the coming weeks, the Duchess will visit the charities and hold meetings to consolidate her relationships with the organisations.
