  • This is where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been hiding since May

The palace's announcement comes after her patronage at The National Theatre was accidentally revealed a day early on the theatre's website.

Each organization focuses on something the soon-to-be-mom is passionate about, from empowering young women to supporting education for young girls - and of course, she's not staying away from her love for animals.

Two patronages have been handed over to the former actress from Queen Elizabeth, who served a patron to the associations for decades - The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.

Smart Works is one of four organisations of which Meghan has become patron.

Mayhew is an animal welfare charity which helps cats and dogs through community initiatives and veterinary care.

The 37-year-old has held secret meetings in the past few months with each of the organisations and is wasting no time in hitting the ground running - visiting Smart Works on Thursday.

The Duchess of Sussex is now a royal patron of four organisations.

After all, the monarch had reportedly "reached her limit" with the alleged feud between Meghan and Kate and "desperately wanted [them] to make up and she got her wish".

Other reports claimed that Prince Harry's wife was responsible for three royal aides quitting, after she "shook up the household with 5am emails".

"I would like to thank the Queen for Her Majesty's long and unwavering support and service to the National Theatre", said NT director Rufus Norris. "We're thrilled that HRH shares our commitment to improving the lives of animals and people, and are excited to make a difference together".

Meghan Markle has already proved her fashion credentials by being the unofficial guest of honor at 2018's Fashion Awards, and presenting Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller, the woman who made her wedding dress, with British Designer of the Year for Womenswear. "I very much look forward to working closely with Her Royal Highness in the years to come".
