  • Meghan's patronages: Duchess of Sussex's four new causes revealed

The 37-year-old pregnant royal just announced the four organizations for which she has become a royal patron.

The duchess - who is married to Prince Harry - will be supporting the National Theatre as she is a "strong believer in the arts" and believes they can be used to join different communities.

In addition, Meghan will become patron of two additional charities: Smart Works, which helps vulnerable women find the skills needed to work, and Mayhew, a grassroots organization active in London and internationally.

The palace says the queen "has passed on" the role of patron of the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan would be visiting the Smart Works today, and will be making public visits to the other three organisations over the coming weeks.

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.

The charity is one of four organisations Meghan has taken over patronage of.

In 2016 the Queen, now aged 92, stepped down as patron from more than 20 national organisations, handing on the roles to other members of the royal family.

The National Theatre confirmed the Duchess had met privately with the director of the National Rufus Norris at the theatre previous year, and is expected to carry out a public visit at the theatre at some point in the next few weeks.

"Meghan made a huge sacrifice by moving across the pond, away from her mom and friends", an insider familiar with the situation told US Weekly.

Asked why it does not use "Royal" in its title, its director Rufus Norris said last autumn: "Sometimes it's very useful for us and reflective, and sometimes it's less so".

The Duchess of Sussex is officially back to work following the holidays, and has some new duties.

Mrs Beckham herself was clearly thrilled to see Meghan carrying her design, since she posted a looping video on her Instagram page to tell her followers all about its handy hidden detail.

"She has done so much research".

Previously, Markle has served as a U.N. Women's Advocate, Global Ambassador for World Vision and advocated for better access to feminine hygiene products in developing nations.
