Meghan Markle roles REVEALED: What are Meghan's first royal patronages?

Photo of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Cotswold home reportedly surfaces

And now, Kensington Palace has announced the Duchess of Sussex's first four royal patronages.

The patronage, which is now held by the Queen, is likely to suit the duchess, who was an actress before joining the royal family when she married Harry previous year.

Thomas Markle Jr.is getting married in March and plans to invite his half sister Meghan and her husband Harry, according to The Daily Mail.

The Queen has passed on two patronages to the Duchess of Sussex as she seeks to step back from royal duties.

In her first high-profile, solo charity project, Meghan collaborated with women at the Hubb Community Kitchen in West London on a charity cookbook that quickly became a bestseller.

The Queen has held her role with the National Theatre for 45 years and after 33 years, the monarch is also handing over her role with The Association of Commonwealth Universities to Meghan.

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

Broncos Hire Vic Fangio As New Head Coach
The Broncos fired former coach Vance Joseph on December 31 after he posted 5-11 and 6-10 records in his two seasons at the helm. Elway refuses to use the word "rebuilding", but the team has multiple issues to address. "We are behind other teams".

"An acknowledged champion of women and their rights worldwide, The Duchess will motivate ever more women to come to our centres and get the job that will transform their lives", she said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began renting the Cotswold's property before their wedding in May last year on a two-year lease.

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.

The former Suits star then helped the ladies in finding outfits for women attending their second dressing, and she also sat in on interview coaching and preparation. "Mayhew works to improve the lives of dogs, cats and the people in our community, tackling the root cause of animal abandonment and neglect and supporting vulnerable people to stay with their companion pets".

The Royal soon-to-be parents have been favouring their historic farmhouse retreat in Oxfordshire, with reports confirming they've hosted many A-listers at the country bolthole, including Amal and George Clooney, Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas and Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother.

The announcement of Meghan's official patronages comes as she prepares for a busy 2019.

And now, over 12 hours later, Kensington Palace has revealed the news itself.
