Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, has been made patron of the National Theatre as well as three other organisations.
Meghan’s first sole royal patronages will also champion education, women’s employment and animal welfare.
The Duchess, who is a former actress, has taken on honorary roles with Mayhew, Smart Works, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Kensington Palace said. A royal patronage can help promote the profile of good causes.
The Duchess has already met with women who have benefited from Smart Works, a charity which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women get back into work.
