Meghan Markle Made a Surprise Visit to Her Royal Patronage This Week

Looks like Meghan Markle is making the most of her short time across the pond.

On Thursday, the Duchess of Sussex made a secret stop at one of her royal patronages, the National Theatre. During her visit, the 38-year-old viewed emerging technology, such as virtual reality and how it is used to develop new forms of emotive storytelling.

For the occasion, she donned a V-neck white blouse with organza puff sleeves from Topshop and a long white front slit skirt. The duchess shared a behind-the-scenes look at her visit on Instagram in a series of photos, including one of herself besides Nubiya Brandon and her hologram, which is featured in the National Theatre’s “All Kinds of Limbo” exhibition.

“The goal of this method of virtual reality is to enable us to better connect and empathize with each other as people, regardless of race, age or nationality,” part of the caption read. The post also revealed some more information about her under-the-radar visit to Stanford University last month.

“Recently, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also visited Stanford University where part of their learning journey included a virtual reality presentation that allows the user to experience life through another person’s point of view,” she included in the caption.

The National Theatre is one of four patronages Markle received in 2019. Kensington Palace gave a sweet reason for the queen’s decision: “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.”

We wonder if this will be the last time she’ll visit the organization, now that she’s close to completing her final round of royal engagements.
