Meghan moves into more visible roles in United Kingdom royal family

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

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.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's secret country home revealed to be a converted farmhouse that covers four acres in Oxfordshire Hills.

"Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash, and she's finding the whole situation incredibly stressful", a royal insider explained. She will also be the patron of Mayhew, which works to "improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally".

"Over the past year, Her Royal Highness has held meetings and conducted private visits with each of these organisations", Kensington Palace said.

Meghan has always been a vocal feminist, working with organizations like One World Vision to learn about the challenges women and girls living in Dubai and Mumbai. The former Suits star has a clear interest in the arts, and hopes to focus on making the theater world "inclusive, diverse, and national" through The National Theatre.

Ranveer says he feels bad when someone's film doesn't work at the box office as everyone is a part of the same industry. The film celebrates the journey of a boy of Mumbai streets as he goes on to become one of India's most notable rappers.

The Director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris, said it was a "privilege to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as our new Patron", adding that Meghan "shares our deeply-held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life".

The Duchess of Sussex, who is due to give birth to her first child in spring, is estranged from Thomas Markle Jr. and her half sister Samantha.

"The Duchess will today visit Smart Works and over the next few weeks will undertake public visits to the other three organisations".

In addition to these two new roles, the Duchess is also taking on two additional charities - Smart Works and Mayhew.

The Duchess has already met with women who have benefited from Smart Works, a charity which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women get back into work. "The Duchess has spent many years championing animal welfare, and we are honored to have our charity represented by such a passionate Patron".
