Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are slated to move out of Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor this year, but the couple also has a private country home in the Cotswolds.

The charity helps unemployed and vulnerable women regain skills and confidence for job interviews and returning to employment.

The source also revealed that Meghan is "anxious to learn about royal protocol and takes her new duties very seriously".

Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan would be visiting the Smart Works today, and will be making public visits to the other three organisations over the coming weeks.

But it appears Meghan found a clever way to control her nerves and feel more confident, which she shared with representatives of Smart Works, a charity of which she is now patron.

Meghan immediately got to work, speaking with a group of women involved in Smart Works about the importance of professional dress and supporting others. Her Majesty The Queen was previously patron of two of these organizations - The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.

Kelly music sales surge after ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ docuseries
R&B legend Ne-Yo has posted his support for the series, saying that music can not matter more than the lives of young black women. The project's first target is Asante McGee , who told her harrowing story of being one of R.

Meghan, 37, will start the new roles immediately.

Two of the patronages, The National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities, have been passed on to Meghan by the Queen, who has held the roles for 45 and 33 years respectively.

It's official. Meghan Markle's first official patronages have been announced, and, honestly, they couldn't be more ideal for her.

The National Theatre was given permission to add the prefix Royal to its name in 1988, to mark its 25th birthday, but it has not changed its moniker.

The Director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris, quickly reacted to the news, thanking the Queen for "long and unwavering support and service". The Duchess shares our deeply-held conviction that theatre has the power to bring together people from all communities and walks of life.

Ruma had been out of work for nearly a year before securing part-time role and is set to come back to the charity for a set of new outfits from the Dressing Room for her new job.
