The four organisations the Duchess of Sussex has become a patron of have been announced by Kensington Palace.

On the furry friends side, Markle becomes the royal patron of The Mayhew, an organization dedicated to animal welfare for pets.

Meghan will have an affinity with the National theatre after spending a decade working in television where she was best known for her role in the hit United States legal drama series Suits, playing paralegal-turned-lawyer Rachel Zane. Her growing baby bump was on full display as she greeted members of the women's charity.

She also is now a patron of The National Theatre, The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) and Mayhew.

The news was revealed yesterday accidentally, ahead of the official announcement, on the National Theatre's website.

"The Duchess's patronage will inspire the women we serve and help them reach for the stars".

Last year, the publication reported that the rift between Kate and Meghan has "put pressure" on the couple's marriage.

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

The former actress' support for the National Theatre reflects her belief in using the arts to bring communities together and her own background in theater and television, the palace said. Meanwhile, it's no surprise that Meghan, a vocal feminist, chose an organization focused on helping women regain the skills and confidence to find jobs after unemployment.

Meanwhile, the "ambitious" Duchess is becoming increasingly "frustrated" by The Palace rejecting all her ideas and feels she has "no voice" according to U.S. reports. "It's not some honorary thing, she really cares", she said.

The organisation's chair and founder Juliet Hughes-Hallett said "an acknowledged champion of women and their rights worldwide, the Duchess will motivate even more women to come to our centres and get the job that will transform their lives".

Markle selected Mayhew, an animal welfare charity that works to better the lives of animals and people to better communities in London, and those overseas internationally.
