The announcement today, January 10 of the royal patronages shows the Duchess is being given more of a role in the royal family and is making more steps in her public life.

A theatre spokeswoman declined to comment, while Kensington Palace would not confirm the patronage.

Kensington Palace have now sought to regain control of the announcement, officially revealing Meghan's first four patronages on Thursday, which are the first official royal responsibilities given to her since her marriage to Prince Harry eight months ago.

Kensington Palace said Thursday that Meghan will take over two roles as patron that have for decades been held by Queen Elizabeth II and is taking two other roles as well.

The Queen previously was patron of the National Theatre and the ACU, but has now passed them on to the duchess. "Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organizations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent".

Along with her rumored rift with the Duchess of Cambridge, the "Suits" actress was also bothered by an article published by Vanity Fair that portrayed her as a social climber.

She has held meetings and visited all four organizations over the past year, the palace said.

Meghan has always been a vocal feminist, working with organizations like One World Vision to learn about the challenges women and girls living in Dubai and Mumbai.

The Duchess has already met with women who have benefited from Smart Works, a charity which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women get back into work.

Meghan reportedly has had not had any contact with her dad since before her wedding, when he was caught staging paparazzi photos for money. She became the fourth member of the Royal Foundation, started by William, Kate and Harry, at the time of her wedding.

Two of the patronages Meghan now has formerly belonged to the Queen and have been handed over to the Duchess. The Cotswolds home is meant to act as an interim home base as they await renovations on Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which will be their new official residence starting this spring.
