'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex will become Patron of four organisations that reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare, ' the Palace said in a statement.
Her role as patron of the National Theatre was accidentally revealed yesterday on the theatre's website.
The Queen has passed on two patronages, The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities, and others have been created for her.
The Duchess of Sussex has announced her first patronages, as she vows to help unemployed women to feel confident about their upcoming job interviews with personal styling and makeovers. "I very much look forward to working closely with Her Royal Highness in the years to come". The duchess shares our deeply held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life.

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 previous year. "The Duchess has spent many years championing animal welfare, and we are honored to have our charity represented by such a passionate Patron".
Juliet Hughes-Hallett, chair and founder of Smart Works, said she was "thrilled" to have the Duchess on board.
Chief executive Kate Stephens said: "We are delighted that the Duchess of Sussex is our royal patron".
The former Suits star then helped the ladies in finding outfits for women attending their second dressing, and she also sat in on interview coaching and preparation. "The support of The Duchess of Sussex will help us enormously in achieving this goal". "Mayhew works to improve the lives of dogs, cats and the people in our community".
