Please note that this thread has been cleaned up. Before the thread is re-opened, members are invited to read the following information:

A number of posts have been deleted because they were either off-topic or contributed to the thread being closed due to their bickering and/or offensive nature. Such posts are unacceptable and are not in the spirit of the Royal Forums, which serves as discussion forum and source of information for a great number of people. The Royal Forums is not a platform for just a core group of members to use in promoting their own agenda - either in favour of or against the Duchess of Sussex.

The Royal Forums is an online discussion board that focuses on all aspects of royal life - both positive and negative. It is neither a fan-site nor a hater-site.

Everyone contributing to this forum has a right to post their thoughts and points of view - provided that they fall within the Forum Rules. Whether such view is positive or negative towards the subject, it is imperative that all members respect other members’ posts and respond - if such response is even necessary - in a constructive and amicable way.

The continual and progressively negative atmosphere within this thread resulting in a situation where people appear to be unable to post anything other than positive points of view on the subject is unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated. If members disagree with a post then they need only make their response once and need not reiterate their response over and over again.

Further, we will not tolerate those with an agenda or whose sole purpose is to be disruptive, hateful, to spread disinformation or to ignore TRF rules and this note. It has been noted that both supporters and non-supporters of the Duchess of Sussex fall into the aforementioned categories and we must warn that future issues will be dealt with by suspending their ability to post.

Finally, recent comments about individual journalists have taken on an uncomfortable and unacceptable tone. Constructive criticism of their work is fine, but personal attacks about them will not be tolerated.

You mean this might mean a future patronage? It would be tremendously prestigious if so. The Queen might feel this would be suitable for Meghan and decide to hand over next year. It would be wonderful if it happens, IMO.

Speculation because Meghan received the Director of the National Theatre, and her list of patronages is expected next month.

Does that mean she now has the National Theater as a patronage or what? I read it yet post did not make sense to me as receiving the Director to me does not mean that is her patronage........... Having the National Theater as her patronage should come from KP or BP or even HM.......so why would someone think it has happened already? Projection is not facts!

It's all speculative at this point, but it certainly looks like a possibility.

Meghan hasn't released her list of patronages yet. The speculation comes from thinking that a patronage with the National Theatre (of England) might be on its way, as she received the Artistic Director at a private meeting. The 'receiving' that royals do are events posted in the CC and almost invariably have to do with their own charities and patronages.

A patronage of the Royal National Theater would be in Meghan's wheelhouse given her background.

Many royals 'receive' someone who is connected to a charity/organisation. Sometimes they are to do with their own charities or organisations and sometimes not - it may be an area of interest but not directly connected to that royal. Sometimes a royal will also receive someone connected to another royals charity or organisations - especially when the charity or organisation has the Queen as patron as she does very few engagements to do with any of her patronages but sometimes another royal will step in for her (and now also for Philip).

Well, I guess we will just have to wait and see whether something connected with the National Thestre or with a theatrical background is on the list of Meghan's patronages. I'm sure it will be released in the New Year, so not so long to wait!

It is a possibility that the Queen may hand down the patronage of the Royal National Theater to Meghan. We saw this happen recently with Evelina London Children's Hospital which was under the Queen's patronage until this week when it was announced that Kate was named a patron.

Its a time when the Queen can and does slow down and start passing on patronages to the younger royals. So, with this in mind, its plausible to think that this may happen. It hasn't become official yet but does seem like a very good possibility. Receiving the Artistic Director, the National Theatre is a good clue. The man wouldn't have just stopped by for a cup of tea. There was a purpose for the visit.

I always thought that an area that Meghan would mesh well with is the arts. Her father-in-law has quite a few patronages in the arts and out of the "fab four", Meghan is the one with the most experience in that area.

There are also so many local or community theaters or groups Meghan could support. I would be pleased with that more grassroots approach too.

Edward has a number of patronages in the arts and theatre e.g. the National Youth Theatre is one of his patronages. I think a lot of people forget his interest in this area.

That's what I envisioned for Meghan too. The grassroots of the arts. I can definitely see that happening too. Each royal in the Royal Foundation has their own primary specific area of interest. Harry is the armed forces, William's is conservation and Kate's is children. They also work together on Heads Together and several other incentives such as bullying. Meghan could have quite a few of hers centered around the performing arts and still have other areas that she patronizes.

Somehow, everything they do though affects other areas that they all work on. Its amazing really. I love how the Royal Foundation is a great big umbrella. But that is just their own personal interests. Each of these four royals will be taking on more and more of official "Firm" patronages as time passes too. We've seen today that Charles and Harry participated in a forum about youth violence with the Prince's Trust. There may be something coming out of that area too where Harry will be taking on a project with that.

Its a period of transition we're seeing, I believe. Winding down the present reign's list of involvement for the next reign to cover and continue to move on smoothly. I kind of expected this to happen as the "fab four" as we like to call them step up more and more into being full time working members of the "Firm". It'll all happen again too once William and Harry's children actively step into the roles they perhaps will have for the "Firm".

Its really interesting to watch for me.

Edward also has experience in the performing arts area. OK, so the program "Its A Royal Knockout" has been knocked around a bit but I found it highly amusing. It was also for charity. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see things happen that will be a joint venture between Edward and Meghan. Anything is possible. As the Queen stated, its "Team Windsor" at work.

You mean Catherine not Meghan.

Oh sheesh. Thanks for catching that. It *was* Kate at Evelina London and not Meghan. It does point to the Queen doing more and more handing down of her patronages to the younger royals. I've corrected my post.

I need more coffee.

I suspect this will be the way she starts off. Not to say in a few years she won't be connected to a major theater but not initially, IMO. Meghan meeting with head of a organization is a great way to get information and maybe talk of a future collaboration.
