Meghan Markle’s gig as theater royal patron may be at stake after Megxit

Meghan Markle’s gig as theater royal patron may be at stake after Megxit

Meghan Markle‘s gig as royal patron of the National Theatre is reportedly in jeopardy amid her departure from daily palace duties.

The Queen passed down her role as royal patron — a position she held for 45 years — to Markle in January 2019, along with her patronage to the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

A year later, Markle and Prince Harry made the bombshell announcement they would build a new life in Canada and become financially independent from the Queen and Co.

Now the London theater community is reportedly questioning Markle’s commitment, since she moved halfway across the globe with Prince Harry and the couple’s young son, Archie.

“I think we should give Meghan until Easter to say what she thinks is possible with her patronage,” Nic Burns, owner of the Nimax Group of theaters in London’s West End, told The Sun. “We have to give her a chance, forget who she is and give her some space.

“If she is not going to be doing any work with the National, then she should step down. But as she is a role model, we would rather she didn’t.”

Theater honchos were reportedly angered when Markle visited them hours before the couple’s Megxit announcement and acted as if “everything was completely normal,” the British tabloid reported.

Despite the cutthroat announcement from the Queen this week that Markle and Prince Harry would no longer be permitted to use the word “royal” in their titles, the couple confirmed Friday they’d be allowed to maintain their patronages, according to The Sun.
