NewsCamilla officially swipes major role from Meghan Markle as final nail hammered into Megxit


Camilla officially took over the role of Royal Patron replacing the Duchess of Sussex who gave up her royal patronages when she stepped down from her position as a senior royal. 

The Duchess is expected to meet with staff and members of the National Theatre’s community programme, according to royal reporter Cameron Walker. 

In June 2019, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan would succeed the Queen in the role as patron of the theatre.

At the time, Kensington Palace said: “The Duchess is a strong believer in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together.”

Camilla, who is an avid theatre-goer, is now following in Meghan’s footsteps. 

In a press release shared last month, the theatre said: “It is a privilege to welcome the Duchess of Cornwall as the National Theatre’s royal patron. 

“The Duchess shares our belief that theatre enriches our lives in so many ways and that everyone should have access to the arts and creativity no matter where they are in the world.

“The Duchess has shown great support to our industry throughout the pandemic, and I look forward to working with Her Royal Highness for many years to come.”]

Camilla holds a further two theatre patronages for the Theatre Royal Bath and the Unicorn Theatre in London.
