Meghan's first royal patronage revealed by mistake

Meghan's first royal patronage revealed by mistake”

When it comes to royal mistakes, it's quite a biggie, considering these are Meghan's first-ever royal patronages given to her by the Queen and there was growing interest over what they would be.

A theatre spokeswoman declined to comment, while Kensington Palace would not confirm the patronage.

Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry last May, and is now expecting the couple's first child this spring. She plans to visit one of the charities later Thursday, according to Kensington Palace.

She will also become patron of the National Theatre, a role handed down to her from the Queen. "Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organizations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent". She has now passed on the responsibility to the Duchess of Sussex.

The Duchess, who has long advocated for women's empowerment, is understood to have paid numerous quiet visits to the charity already, sitting in to help on client meetings as worked to choose suitable royal patronages within her areas of interest.

The Director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris, said it was a "privilege to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as our new Patron", adding that Meghan "shares our deeply-held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life".

It's now been confirmed the former actress will takeover the role with the National Theatre, a patronage which was was leaked early in an online blunder, along with three other issues close to the Duchess of Sussex's heart.

Mayhew is an animal welfare charity which helps cats and dogs through community initiatives and veterinary care.

Meghan and Harry reportedly began renting the Cotswold property before their wedding previous year. She became the fourth member of the Royal Foundation, started by William, Kate and Harry, at the time of her wedding.

Meghan Markle has officially been announced as patron of four organisations, taking over two of those from The Queen. The Cotswolds home is meant to act as an interim home base as they await renovations on Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which will be their new official residence starting this spring.
