As The Royal Observer recently reported, it was revealed that Kate would take the patronage from Prince Harry, who left the royal family in 2020.

According to an insider, Queen Elizabeth gave Kate the patronage a while back, but she waited to announce the news as she didn't want to "antagonize" Harry.

When Meghan Markle, 40, and Harry, 37, decided to move to the United States in 2020, they gave up their patronages, which included England Rugby, The Royal National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
