Meghan Markle crossed off another royal milestone when she visited Smart Works on Thursday, marking her first patronage outing.

The roles are the first patronages Meghan holds in her own right, as she is already a joint patron of the Royal Foundation.

The duchess also will work to support Smart Works, a charity that helps unemployed women with interview preparation and styling sessions (complete with free clothing), as well as with Mayhew, an worldwide animal welfare charity. In the coming weeks, the Duchess will visit the charities and hold meetings to consolidate her relationships with the organisations.

Earlier in the day Juliet said of the Royal appointment in a statement: "We are thrilled to announce that The Duchess of Sussex will become the Royal Patron of Smart Works".

The organizations "reflect the causes and issues with which she has always been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare", the palace said.

Plus the Queen "reached her limit" with Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton and is "relieved" rift is over, claims USA reports.

However now a source said to be close to the royal household has slammed the rumours, revealing that staff are "excited" by her enthusiasm, and describing her management style as "very different" to that of her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

With the eyes of the world watching, it would be understandable if the Duchess of Sussex was feeling a little nervous ahead of her royal wedding in May. "No one bothers them there", the insider said.

Meghan began her public charitable work in the United Kingdom soon after she Wednesday Prince Harry in May. Queen Elizabeth II is a patron of more than 600 charities and Prince Philip of more than 700.

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

The announcement is a major milestone for the American-born former actress, outlining the first steps of her public life as a member of the monarchy.
