The National Theatre is located in London's South Bank and was officially opened by the Queen in 1976 after it moved from its first home at the Old Vic. The company puts on more than a thousand performances every year. The National Theatre is a landmark theatre in London. However, the Duchess's role could reportedly be focused on the The American Associates of the National Theatre – a New York-based charity which supports the National Theatre's work in the U.K. and U.S.


  1. She’s a good fit for the role. I wish that in the future, she would highlight the work of smaller theatres and engage with theatre students and discuss the role of arts in mental health.

    1. Yes, arts in mental health would add a nice dimension to the mental health causes already started by her husband and in-laws.

  2. I think this Patron ship is a good fit for her.

  3. She will bring a new spark of enthusiasm to this patronage.
