On Wednesday, The National Theatre accidentally let some important Meghan Markle news slip.

Smart Works "helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women regain the skills, confidence and tools to succeed at job interviews, return to employment and transform their lives", according to the Palace.

In Feb. 2012, Kate made her first patronage visit to the National Portrait Gallery for a private viewing of the works of artist Lucian Freud.

The big announcement comes as Meghan and Harry, 34, grow closer to welcoming their first child.

North Korea leader Kim Jong-un visits China
On Sunday, Trump told reporters negotiations were under way over a location for a second summit with Kim. He added that Kim would "certainly call on Xi Jinping to give North Korea more economic assistance".

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

One of the four new patronages announced by the Duchess of Sussex at the start of 2019 is Smart Works, an organisation which supports women into work.

Meghan, who was an actress before her marriage to Prince Harry, will work with the National Theatre.

Each organization focuses on something the soon-to-be-mom is passionate about, from empowering young women to supporting education for young girls - and of course, she's not staying away from her love for animals.

Buckingham Palace said that "patronages generally reflect the interests of the member of the Royal Family involved".
