It is one of four organisations of which Meghan has become patron, along with National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities - taking over from the Queen - and Mayhew.

Meghan, who Wednesday Prince Harry in May, will now assume her role as the royal patron of several charitable organisations.

And now, Kensington Palace has announced the Duchess of Sussex's first four royal patronages. She held meetings and conducted private meetings with each organisation prior to announcing the patronages and will undertake public visits over the coming weeks.

Having had a successful career as an actress (duh) prior to becoming a royal, we can totally see why The National Theatre was selected as one of her charities.

Smart Works is a charity that, in the five years since its inception, has helped 11,000 women across seven United Kingdom locations.

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.

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".

In the statement announcing her association with the charity, Kensington Palace said the Duchess has always been inspired by helping other women to succeed and even donated her "prom dresses" while at university as part of a project to help young women in underprivileged areas.

Meghan, 37, will start the new roles immediately.

"The Duchess is delighted to become patron of both national and grassroots organizations that are part of the fabric of the United Kingdom, and is very much looking forward to working with them to bring wider public attention to their causes", the palace said.

Meanwhile, the "ambitious" Duchess is becoming increasingly "frustrated" by The Palace rejecting all her ideas and feels she has "no voice" according to United States reports. "The Duchess is delighted to become Patron of both national and grassroots organizations that are part of the fabric of the United Kingdom, and is very much looking forward to working with them to bring wider public attention to their causes", Kensington Palace said in a statement. Speaking to HELLO!'s royal correspondent Emily Nash, Marina explained: "It's amusing, she said a year ago, someone was talking about confidence and we asked, 'how do you manage with confidence when you're feeling shy?' And she said, 'I'm about to take my big role, happening now".

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. "Mayhew works to improve the lives of dogs, cats and the people in our community".

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.

There has been much speculation about where the couple will raise their first child, but though Frogmore Cottage seems like the obvious choice, it's also likely that they'll opt to spend time out in the Cotswolds as well.
