Meghan Markle Announces First Royal Patronages

Royal Wedding The best Royal beauty looks through the ages
Lora Ball | 14 January, 2019, 17:30

More information about Meghan Markle's new patronages can be found on the royal family's website.

Along with SmartWorks, the Duchess is also taking over from the Queen as patron of the National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities, as well as animal rights organisation Mayhew.

The Duchess' patronage of the NT is one of four she has taken on, alongside the Association of Commonwealth Universities - in which she also succeeds the Queen as patron - women's charity Smart Works and animal welfare charity Mayhew.

Smart Works "helps unemployed women in their upcoming interviews by offering them an outfit to wear and 1:1 coaching", the Palace explained.

Meghan arrived at Smart Works, based in St Charles Hospital in north Kensington, west London, wearing a dress from Hatch and tan coat by Oscar de la Renta.

Apart from her new positions with these four organizations, Meghan will continue her work with The Royal Foundation, of which she is joint Patron alongside Harry, Will and Kate.

The charity tweeted about its new patron: "The duchess's decision to support Smart Works reflects her passion in supporting women, and her commitment will help women in need across the United Kingdom".

Reports one survivor in Iran plane crash
But a source told Fars agency that the plane belonged to the Iranian military's air force. TV said rescue teams had been sent to the area, between the airports of Fath and Payam.

The announcement came at the beginning of the first new year following her royal wedding, just like Meghan.

Though she tries to stay above the gossip and avoids reading the incessant stories about her, "some things are just hard to stay away from", the source added, insinuating that the newly-minted royal can't completely turn a blind eye to all it all.

THE BEST place to see the duke and duchess of Sussex when they visit Birkenhead has been revealed. On the fun outing, which was perfectly in line with Meghan's passion for helping women, she lent her sartorial savvy to the disadvantaged ladies getting styled for job interviews.

It seems like Meghan's had these Gianvito Rossi shoes for a while, as she first gave us a glimpse of them back when her Instagram account was still active.

Mrs Wardally, whom Meghan helped dress, said she felt "exhilarated" to have met the duchess.

And does Meghan Markle's "high and pointy" bump mean she's having a boy?
