Meghan Markle

Despite all of the drama in her personal life, Meghan Markle is ready to get to work.
The Duchess of Sussex and soon-to-be momma just announced the four key issues she will champion during her royal life. Using her past charitable background and new platform as Duchess, Prince Harry‘s wife will work with organizations to spread awareness and create change.

Kensington Palace announced the big news on Thursday, noting that the 37-year-old has long been associated with the causes she’s decided to support. Known formally as her “patronages”, here are the four key items on Meghan’s royal to-do list:
Supporting The Arts
The ex Suits star can stay in touch with her former profession through supporting the arts with the National Theatre. This new role working with the U.K.’s most prominent publicly funded performing arts venue was actually passed down to her from Queen Elizabeth.
Supporting Higher Education
The Association of Commonwealth Universities was also named as one of her patronages. Established in 1913, the Association of Commonwealth Universities is the world’s first international university network, and remains the only accredited organization representing higher education across the Commonwealth. 
Supporting & Uplifting Women
The Duchess will also spend time working with Smart Works, a charity organization that helps longterm unemployed and vulnerable women regain the skills, confidence and tools to succeed at job interviews, return to employment and take back their lives. This makes sense, as Meghan has already worked with a collective of women at the U.K.’s Hubb Community Center to help create her charity cookbook last September.
Supporting Animal Welfare
The the fourth and final cause that Meghan will champion protects our furry, four-legged friends. She accepts the patronage of Mayhew, an animal welfare charity working to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally.
So there you have it! With a baby due in the spring, it sounds like Meg has a lot on her plate. But we’re confident she can handle it.
Thoughts, Perezcious readers? What do U think of the Duchess’ patronages? Sound off below!
