The Queen has passed on two patronages to The Duchess of Sussex –The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities. The Queen has held the roles for 45 and 33 years respectively. The Duchess will also take on Patronage of two additional charities as part of her official working portfolio – Smart Works and Mayhew.

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. In support of access to education, the Association of Commonwealth Universities is the world's first and oldest international university network and the only accredited organisation representing higher education across all 53 Commonwealth countries.

With regards to supporting women, Smart Works 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. 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.


  1. This is tremendous show of confidence and from what I've seen thus far I expect the Duchess will bring immediate and appreciable contributions to her charities <3

    1. Me too. A beautiful gesture from the Queen. I'm happy for Meghan, she definitely can use some positive things in these times where she is badly hunted.

    2. Well said.

  2. These charities will really keep her busy. But I am sure she'll handle them with ease.

  3. Very fitting charities for the Duchess! I am happy for her, it will give her something meaningful to put her energy to.

  4. She will do very well, as we can see is she working on being a relyable part of the BRF.

  5. Für so viele Privilegien kann man schon was Sinnvolles tun !!
