Meghan Markle Wears First Maternity Dress During Pregnancy

The role was previously filled by the Queen, who is also passing on her patronage to The Association of Commonwealth Universities to her new granddaughter-in-law.

Meghan Markle has officially been announced as patron of four organisations, taking over two of those from The Queen.

"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".

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex visited members of the Smart Works team at St. Charles Hospital in London on Thursday, where she toured the facilities, as well as joked about how a woman rejected one of her handbags that she had donated.

Once inside, the fashionista took a hands-on approach as she helped women style an outfit, down to the accessories.At Smart Works, each woman gets a styling session before their first interview and go home with a full outfit to keep.

Prior to her marriage to Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex last year, the Duchess spent 10 years working in television as an actor, and was best known for appearing in US TV series Suits.

Meghan has visited the organisation a number of times over the last 12 months, helping several women transform their lives and today, Meghan was announced as patron of the charity.

Meghan, who is a big animal lover, will also be patron of animal charity The Mayhew.

The National Theatre confirmed the Duchess had met privately with the director of the National Rufus Norris at the theatre a year ago, and is expected to carry out a public visit at the theatre at some point in the next few weeks.

What's more, rumors of infighting between Meghan Markle and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton have hit a fever pitch in recent weeks.

Meghan will continue in her role as joint-patron for The Royal Foundation, which was set up by Princes William and Harry. "This country is still very class-driven and there is a perception, and anything that adds to the perception that this place is not for everyone can be a downfall".

The Duchess of Sussex's four patronages have been revealed.
