Norris thanked the Queen for her "long and unwavering support", adding: "We were honoured when The Queen became our Patron in 1974 and have celebrated many moments together including, in recent years, the diamond jubilee and the marking of our 50th anniversary".

As expected, she is taking over the National Theatre patronage from the Queen, an excellent fit given Meghan's career background.

Meghan Markle, who is settling into royal life quite nicely, will be a patron of four charities in her lifelong role as Duchess of Sussex, Kensington Palace announced Thursday.

The Association of Commonwealth Universities was also named as one of her patronages.

"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".

Finally, she will work alongside Smart Works, a company 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.

On the furry friends side, Markle becomes the royal patron of The Mayhew, an organization dedicated to animal welfare for pets.

Meghan Markle's first royal patronages were announced this morning.

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".

The two sisters-in-law share something else in common: both chose patronages that blend their personal interests with charity work.

Meghan revealed that she battled nerves by remembering to breathe.

Plus the Queen "reached her limit" with Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton and is "relieved" rift is over, claims U.S. reports.

In response to the negative press attention, a royal insider told Us Weekly: "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". She has previously advocated for gender equality and improvement of women's education.
