Kensington Palace announced that Meghan was to become patron of four organisations, including The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities which have both been passed onto Meghan by the Queen.

Posting on Instagram, the palace wrote: "The Duchess of Sussex will become Patron of four organisations that reflect the causes and issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.

"Her Majesty The Queen has passed on two patronages to The Duchess of Sussex -The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.

"The Queen has held the roles for 45 and 33 years respectively. Her Royal Highness will also take on Patronage of two additional charities as part of her official working portfolio - Smart Works and Mayhew."

The National Theatre's mission is to make world class theatre that is entertaining, challenging and inspiring for everyone and to be as inclusive, diverse and national as possible.

As an ode to Meghan's commitment to education, she is now a patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, which is the world's first and oldest international university network and the only accredited organisation representing higher education across all 53 Commonwealth countries.

As Meghan also believes strongly in the power of women, Smart Works helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women regain the skills, confidence and tools to succeed at job interviews, return to employment and transform their lives.

Mayhew is a grassroots charity working in a unique way to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally.

Meghan has already paid a visit to Smart Works this morning (Thursday, 10th January) and spent time chatting to the women that the charity helps.

It has been reported that Meghan has been visiting the charity privately over the last few months to spend time with women who have benefited from the organisation.

Speaking at Smart Works, the duchess said: "It is not just about donating your clothes, it is about being part of each other's success stories with the tools you give and the interview prep, it is every piece of it.

"It is not just hand me downs, it is the place which will help women to land that interview and I want this to be the piece to help this woman be part of her story so to know you have women believing in you makes it so special."
