Meghan Markle visits Smart Works as first royal patronages are announced

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". The Association of Commonwealth Universities is the world's first worldwide university network and remains the only accredited organization representing higher education across the Commonwealth.

The actress is a huge supporter of animal welfare.

The Duchess also met a woman named Ruma, who had been referred to the charity by father-in-law Prince Charles's charity, Prince's Trust.

Kensington Palace announced Thursday that the Duchess of Sussex will be the patron of four royal organizations, with two of her roles taking over from Queen Elizabeth II. The other royal patronages, which Markle announced today, are the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Mayhew (an animal organization) and the National Theatre, which leaked the news on Wednesday.

Kate's first royal patronage was announced in October 2011, when she joined husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry at The Royal Foundation.

This will not be the first time Markle is pitching in to lend a hand.

Adam Schiff , the chairman of the House intelligence committee, also said he would be seeking a closed door hearing with Cohen. Elijah Cummings , the committee's chair, said the panel would avoid interfering with Mueller's investigation.

According to The Sun, Harry and Meghan began renting the property early last year on a two-year lease and moved in just before their May wedding.

In the past, Markle has worked with World Vision where she was global ambassador from 2016 to 2017.

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.

The Duchess has visited the organisation a number of times in the past year and this year, they're hoping to dress and coach another 3,500 women across the United Kingdom to successfully gain employment.

This comes just months before the royal is due to deliver her first baby, which would solidify and perhaps arguably legitimize her place as in the royal family.
