Meghan Markle reveals how she stayed calm during the royal wedding

Meghan's patronages: Duchess of Sussex's four new causes revealed

She'll also become patron of four organisations that reflect the causes she's always been associated with including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.

Her role as patron of the National Theatre was accidentally revealed yesterday on the theatre's website. It wasn't until January 2012 that she revealed she would be a patron of four charities: East Anglia's Children's Hospices, the Art Room, the National Portrait Gallery and the Scout Association.

The role has been handed down to Meghan, who made her name as an actress on USA television and theatre, by the Queen, who has held the role for the last 45 years dating back to when the National Theatre began at The Old Vic.

Kensington Palace said that over the past 12 months Meghan "has held meetings and conducted private visits" with each of her four new charities or organisations.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a chic, workwear-inspired outfit today as she paid a visit to one of her first patronages Smart Works.

The Duchess of Sussex joked self-deprecatingly with Lady Juliet Hughes-Hallett, a former editor of Vogue UK, about the incident.

Meghan, who was an actress before her marriage to Prince Harry, will work with the National Theatre. Her Royal Highness will also take on Patronage of two additional charities as part of her official working portfolio - Smart Works and Mayhew.

In the past, Markle has worked with World Vision where she was global ambassador from 2016 to 2017.

Meghan also recently met with The National Theatre's artistic director Rufus Norris at the palace, The Telegraph reports.

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

Meanwhile, it's no surprise that Meghan, a vocal feminist, chose an organization focused on helping women regain the skills and confidence to find jobs after unemployment.

In addition to her stop at Smart Works, Meghan will also call on the other organisations in the coming weeks.

Despite once saying in an interview that she didn't think she could pull-off Victoria's designs, this isn't the first time she's worn the Beckham brand - she surprised on Christmas Day by wearing a head-to-toe look by friend of the family Victoria.
