Duchess of Sussex sets out royal manifesto with four patronages

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex will become Patron of four organisations that reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare".

Meghan Markle found herself at the centre of a right royal gaffe this week as the National Theatre accidentally announced her patronage hours ahead of Kensington Palace.

The duchess will visit Smart Works later Thursday and is expected to call on the other three charities over the coming weeks, the palace said in a statement.

Kensington Palace said the four organisations "reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare".

Kensington Palace said Thursday that Meghan will take over two roles as patron that have for decades been held by Queen Elizabeth II and is taking two other roles as well.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began renting the Cotswold's property before their wedding in May last year on a two-year lease.

However, he only ended up playing three games with the Cavaliers, who waived him before that deal would become fully guaranteed. On Sunday, the Cavs waived McCaw after three games in Cleveland ahead of a deadline that would have guaranteed his contract.

Smart Works is a charity which 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".

Meghan officially joined the royal family in May 2018, but since the royal wedding, the 37-year-old has been at the center of negative rumors. Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organisations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent.

In a statement from Kensington Palace, it says: "As a university graduate, Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate of accessible education for all, something she spoke of most recently during her visit to Fiji past year".

Joanna Newman, chief executive and secretary general of the ACU, said she was "thrilled" Meghan had become their new patron. "The support of The Duchess of Sussex will help us enormously in achieving this goal".

The former Suits star then helped the ladies in finding outfits for women attending their second dressing, and she also sat in on interview coaching and preparation.
