Meghan Markle Sports Killer $300 Dress On 1st Public Outing Of 2019

The pregnant royal, 37, has been hounded by rumours that she is is nicknamed "Duchess Difficult" and has even made staff cry.

As royal patron of the National Theatre, Markle will pick up the Queen's mantle by focusing on the arts, a field the former Suits star knows a thing or two about.

Meghan will be the patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, animal welfare charity Mayhew and Smart Works; an organisation that aims to help long term unemployed women find work by gaining new skills and confidence. She will also be working with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the only accredited organisation representing higher education in the Commonwealth.

Meghan has previously spoken in support of championing the arts, and has expressed she wishes to use her position to make a difference to the arts sector.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a chic, workwear-inspired outfit today as she paid a visit to one of her first patronages Smart Works.

Smart Works is one of four organisations of which Meghan has become patron.

Billions of white dwarf stars are crystallising, say astronomers
Our sun is going to turn into a crystal sphere - although we won't be around to see it, as it'll happen in ten billion years. These burnt-out stars are reduced to dwindling orbs of gas made up of electrons and carbon and oxygen ions.


Markle stopped by Smart Works on Thursday for her first public appearance at the organization.

Meghan, who is a big animal lover, will also be patron of animal charity The Mayhew. She chose classic minimalist pieces for Patsy Wardally, a 55-year-old who secured a role at Gatwick Airport with the help of the charity.

Wearing a simple fitted black dress, reportedly by maternity label Hatch and costing around £179 (AU $317), Meghan proudly showed off her growing baby bump as she kept a protective hand over it throughout most of the visit.

The duchess has had private visits with the organisations throughout previous year, according to the press release. "This country is still very class-driven and there is a perception, and anything that adds to the perception that this place is not for everyone can be a downfall".

Mr Norris, who held a private meeting with Meghan a month before the announcement, thanked the Queen for her "unwavering support and service" in Kensington Palace's statement about the new patronages.

"She has done so much research".
