Kensington Palace announced Meghan's official patronages Thursday morning in a statement.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's secret country home revealed to be a converted farmhouse that covers four acres in Oxfordshire Hills. She first hinted that it was an area of interest during her December visit to Brinsworth House, a residential nursing and care home for British entertainers run by the Royal Variety Charity.

Her Majesty The Queen was previously patron of two of these organizations - The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) describes itself as the world's first and oldest worldwide university network, which supports the development of higher education across the Commonwealth. "Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organizations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent". A source also told People back in September that the duchess "spends most of her weekends" there.

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 a year ago.

Meghan has always been a vocal feminist, working with organizations like One World Vision to learn about the challenges women and girls living in Dubai and Mumbai.

The Director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris, said it was a "privilege to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as our new Patron", adding that Meghan "shares our deeply-held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life".

Mayhew is an animal welfare charity which helps cats and dogs through community initiatives and veterinary care.

Meghan began her public charitable work in the United Kingdom soon after she Wednesday Prince Harry in May.

News of Meghan's difficulty handling the negative press comes after reports Prince Harry has been "frustrated" about not being able to protect his wife from the downfalls of being a member of the royal family.

The couple are said to be keeping the countryside bolthole even when they move from Harry's current Frogmore Cottage home at Kensington Palace to their new home in Windsor before the birth of their first child which is thought to be due in April.

Two of the patronages Meghan now has formerly belonged to the Queen and have been handed over to the Duchess.
