The Duchess has also become a patron of the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities and the animal welfare charity Mayhew.

The other, The Association of Commonwealth Universities, is an organization she visited last month - one of many that she made as she planned her royal work.

They are the first patronages taken on by Meghan, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the spring.

The Duchess of Sussex has announced her first patronages, as she vows to help unemployed women to feel confident about their upcoming job interviews with personal styling and makeovers. A source also told People back in September that the duchess "spends most of her weekends" there.

"Over the previous year, Her Royal Highness has held meetings and conducted private visits with each of these organisations", the Palace said.

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

"For the arts, the National Theatre's mission is to make world-class theatre that is entertaining, challenging and inspiring for everyone and to be as inclusive, diverse and national as possible".

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".

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be waiting to move to their new home Frogmore Cottage before their baby arrives, it seems that they've snapped up another pad in the interim.

In addition to these two new roles, the Duchess is also taking on two additional charities - Smart Works and Mayhew.

"The Duchess shares our passion for the transformational power of higher education, and Her Royal Highness' support will help champion higher education as a force for good in the Commonwealth and beyond", she said. "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' patronage will inspire the women we serve and help them reach for the stars".

Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan would be visiting the Smart Works today, and will be making public visits to the other three organisations over the coming weeks.
