The Duchess of Sussex is officially back to work following the holidays, and has some new duties.

Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan has secretly visited Smart Works several times over the past year, as well as the other three organisations, and has got to know the people involved well during that time.

The Duchess of Sussex set out her royal manifesto today as she announced her patronage of organisations promoting women, animals, education and the arts. "@NationalTheatre's mission is to make world class theatre that's entertaining, challenging and inspiring - and to make it for everyone". The Association of Commonwealth Universities is the world's first worldwide university network and remains the only accredited organization representing higher education across the Commonwealth. The Queen herself has reportedly "reached her limit" with Meghan and Kate's feud and has demanded it stops at once.

The announcement came at the beginning of the first new year following her royal wedding, just like Meghan.

Meghan accepted honorary roles with the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Smart Works, which helps vulnerable or long-term unemployed women find jobs, and Mayhew, an animal welfare organisation.

At Smart Works, Meghan helped Patsy Wardally pick out some clothes.

Duchess Meghan Markle arrives for a visit to Smart Works on Thursday (January 10) in London, England. The three other organisations are The National Theatre, The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) and Mayhew.

Markle has already met privately with each of these organizations.

A royal insider has refuted reports that Meghan Markle is seen as "difficult" by staff, revealing that she is in fact "well-liked". However, she "allowed him a guys' night out for the first time in months, and he got wasted".

Meghan is certainly going to be one busy royal this year!

During her tour of the headquarters, the Duchess spoke to a number of women who worked for, and who had benefited from, the outfitting service.

The Duchess of Sussex's royal patronages have been announced and they include two organisations that the Queen once looked over.

Cape Town - Meghan was absolutely glowing during her first outing for 2019. "Marrying into the royal family isn't anywhere near as glamorous as it seems, so in a lot of ways Harry feels responsible for Meghan being so miserable".
