Meghan Markle Has Not 1, Not 2, but THREE Royal Engagements This Week

The Markle Sparkle hasn't missed a moment to shine, and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Six months' pregnant Meghan Markle has three (!) royal engagements this week, Kensington Palace announced via a series of tweets over the weekend.

Her first stop will be on Wednesday, Jan. 30, to her new patronage, the National Theatre. This will mark Duchess Meghan's first visit to the organization since being named patron by Queen Elizabeth.

Earlier this month, Kensington Palace gave a sweet reason for the choice: “The Duchess is a strong believer in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together. Whilst Her Royal Highness spent ten years working in television, her training is in theatre. As well as a double major in theatre and international relations from Northwestern University, which is renowned for its drama programme, Her Royal Highness volunteered at a performing arts after school programme for children in underprivileged school districts in Los Angeles.” 

Then, Markle will have to shift from right brain to left brain as she goes from the arts to academics. The next day, on Jan. 31, the Duchess of Sussex will visit another patronage, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, which promotes increasing access to education. The palace said while there, Markle will "meet students and academics from across the ACU’s network of 500 university members. The ACU helps to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds and improve lives."

And the following day, on Feb. 1, Prince Harry will join Markle for a royal visit to Bristol, a city in the southwest of England. During the royal visit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Old Vic, the oldest continuously working theatre in the English speaking world, and Empire Fighting Chance, a boxing club that "aims to fight the impact of deprivation" in young people's lives. (And fingers crossed we get at least three more fabulous bump-hugging outfits this week.)

*Phew* They're definitely going to need a vacation soon. (Royals, they're just like us...)
