Why The Duchess Of Sussex Hasn’t Received Royal Patronages Yet?
It’s has been three months since Meghan Markle finally became a part of the royal family. And that was a role Meghan had no problem fitting in.
However there is still one royal things she has yet to do-becoming a patron to her chosen charities.
We know that Meghan is already co-patron for the Royal Foundation with her husband Prince Harry and her in-laws Prince William and Kate Middleton, but she is yet to announce her individual external patronages. It might be that The Duchess of Sussex wants to really think which cause to give her support to.
In a similar case, Meghan Markle’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton took her sweet time aswell, as she announced her patronages nine months after her wedding to Prince William. In January 2012, it was revealed that Kate had accepted honorary positions with Action on Addiction, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, the Art Room and the National Portrait Gallery. She also volunteered for the Scout Association, working near her then home in North Wales.
The choices reflected Kate’s interests in the arts, promotion of outdoor activity and supporting people in need of all ages. A statement from St James’s Palace also noted: “The Duchess has chosen to support organisations that complement the charitable work already undertaken by her husband.”
And Meghan will probably follow in the same footsteps. She’ll probably choose patronages from all kinds of different charities that reflect her interest.
So far, the former actress has shown passion for all kinds of charity work. She was often making private visits to different organizations before her wedding, including meeting with Grenfell fire survivors.
Her love for humanitarian work was well known well before her relationship with Prince Harry. Meghan has worked for United Nations Women as part of the HeforShe gender equality movement and in 2016, she became the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada, travelling to Rwanda to help promote the Clean Water Campaign.
A staunch feminist and activist, the Duchess has previously written in her now-defunct blog The Tig: “I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches – I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works.
“And this type of work is what feeds my soul and fuels my purpose.
‘The degree to which I can do that both on and off camera is a direct perk of my job.”
We’re sure she’ll make a great patron for whichever charities she chooses to support!
