In addition to getting ready to welcome her first child with Prince Harry next April, Meghan Markle will take on more royal duties. 

The monarch is reportedly looking to increase the Duchess of Sussex’s involvement, beginning with her first royal patronage (which basically means a royal family member aiding an organisation by giving their name and support to it). Doing so will help lighten the 92-year-old’s workload. 

According to the Daily Maildiscussions are said to be “ongoing” as to what role Meghan will take on, with royal insiders speculating that the former actress could be handed causes that reflect her interest in feminism and the arts.
