Meghan Markle Just Got a Fancy New Job Promotion by Order of Her Majesty the Queen

As far as resumes go, Meghan Markle's is stacked.

Aside from being head of four different patronages for the royal family; a former TV-show star, UN advocate for gender equality and successful blogger; and now a speaker on panels about feminism and access to higher education for all, the duchess has just been promoted to vice president of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, by order of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth herself. (And she's nearly eight months pregnant...no biggie.)

This makes her veep to Prince Harry, who is currently president of the QCT, which helps support, fund and connect young leaders around the world who are working to improve their communities.

The trust is a patronage of the queen, so Liz is making all the decisions about the rank-and-file. In celebration of her new title (although, this visit was already planned before the promotion announcement), Markle joined a panel of female activists, including Annie Lennox, for International Women's Day on Friday.

An announcement from the QCT said Markle will work with Prince Harry, but her main focus will be on supporting women and girls. 

"Women across the Commonwealth and the globe often face the biggest impediments to success. So we are delighted to have our vice-president’s support in helping others to overcome those obstacles," CEO of the Trust Nicola Brentnall said.

A husband and wife president and VP duo? Baby Sussex has some seriously huge shoes to fill.
