Meghan Markle's patronages confirmed after National Theatre website gaffe

Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, marked another first in her eight months as a member of Britain's royal family.

A theatre spokeswoman declined to comment, while Kensington Palace would not confirm the patronage.

She is expecting her first child with Harry in the spring.

She has taken on honorary roles with Mayhew, Smart Works, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Kensington Palace said. "Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organizations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent". She also served as an ambassador for United Nations Women.

She has held meetings and visited all four organizations over the past year, the palace said.

The organizations were naturally delighted to have Meghan's endorsement.

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

Rufus Norris, director of the National Theatre, said: "I would like to thank the Queen for Her Majesty's long and unwavering support and service to the National Theatre. In terms of animal welfare, Mayhew is a grassroots charity working in a unique way to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally".

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.

Animal welfare organisation Mayhew tweeted: "We're honoured to reveal that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex has become a Patron of Mayhew".

Meghan and Harry reportedly began renting the Cotswold property before their wedding past year.

Meghan will continue in her role as joint-patron for The Royal Foundation, which was set up by Princes William and Harry.

The couple are awaiting renovations to be completed on their new home, "Apartment 1" at Kensington Palace - technically a wing of the palace with 21 rooms and adjoining doors to "Apartment 1A" (which belongs to Will and Kate).

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