IT blunder leaks Meghan Markle's new role

Information about Her Royal Highness taking on the National Theatre role was accidentally leaked yesterday on the organisation's website.

Meghan has also become patron of Smart Works, a charity that works with unemployed and vulnerable women to help them regain the skills and confidence to return to work, and Mayhew, which supports animal rescue services.

She has a theatre background having studied theatre and worldwide relations at Northwestern University, Illinois, and volunteered at a performing arts after-school programme for children in underprivileged school districts in Los Angeles.

On Thursday morning, Kensington Palace announced that Markle, who is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry, will also be working with The National Theatre, The Association of Commonwealth Universities and Mayhew.

The appointment was confirmed by Kensington Palace on January 10 and is among the first of the Duchess' patronages to be announced.

"The Queen has held the roles for 45 and 33 years respectively", the palace said in a statement.

The former Suits star began her day at Smart Works, a United Kingdom charity that helps unemployed women regain the confidence they need to return to the workforce.

Apple says its battery replacement program hurt iPhone sales
China's "economy began to slow there for the second half", Mr Cook said during an interview with CNBC on Wednesday afternoon. Amid Apple's problems in China, the Dow fell more than 300 points in early trading on Thursday.

In 2016 the Queen, now aged 92, stepped down as patron from more than 20 national organisations, handing on the roles to other members of the royal family.

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

Employment charity Smart Works is the fourth organisation that the 37-year-old will support.

Meghan Markle made her name as an actress, campaigner and blogger before marrying Prince Harry in May 2018 and was best known for playing lawyer Rachel Zane in US TV drama Suits.

Patronages are often life-long commitments, with the chosen royal having a strong interest in the subject matter.

In the past, Markle has worked with World Vision where she was global ambassador from 2016 to 2017.

Earlier today, though, the Duchess of Sussex used her love of fashion for a greater cause.

"Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash, and she's finding the whole situation incredibly stressful", another insider added to the report.
