The Duchess of Sussex set out her royal manifesto today as she announced her patronage of organisations promoting women, animals, education and the arts.

The other, The Association of Commonwealth Universities, is an organization she visited last month - one of many that she made as she planned her royal work.

Kensington Palace said the four organisations "reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare".

Two of the patronages - for the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities - have been passed on to the duchess by Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, who has held them for 45 and 33 years respectively.

The Duchess of Sussex's first royal patronage was accidentally revealed a day early by the National Theatre.

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be waiting to move to their new home Frogmore Cottage before their baby arrives, it seems that they've snapped up another pad in the interim.

The 37-year-old will also work with Smart Works, an organisation which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women re-skill and gain confidence. "The Duchess's decision to support Smart Works reflects her passion in supporting women and her commitment will help women in need across the United Kingdom". Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organisations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent.

The Duchess, who has long advocated for women's empowerment, is understood to have paid numerous quiet visits to the charity already, sitting in to help on client meetings as worked to choose suitable royal patronages within her areas of interest. "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".

Juliet Hughes-Hallett, chair and founder of Smart Works, said she was "thrilled" to have the Duchess on board. "We would like to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her support, and we look forward to working closely with The Duchess as our Patron".
