Now Meghan Markle, wife of Britain's Prince Harry, has been revealed as the new patron of Britain's National Theatre.

Queen Elizabeth has passed on the role to Meghan, who married the queen's grandson last year.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) RUFUS NORRIS, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL THEATRE, SAYING: "The Duchess is a perfect fit....We are completely delighted about this development.

We have had a very happy relationship with Her Majesty for many years.

She's been a wonderful patron and supported us, but this announcement is fantastic for us." Meghan will become patron of three other organizations to champion causes close to her heart -- including charities supporting women and animal welfare.

As the announcement was made, she visited one of the charities in London, which helps unemployed women find good clothes for job interviews.
