Duchess Meghan - Official Patronages

Patronages are not always for a lifetime, but often a set amount of time (for an appeal, 3 years, 5 years, etc). The patronages are reviewed after that period and usually renewed.

This list is only of current patronages:

Smart Works
Patron (January 2019 - Present)

Smart Works was founded in 2013 to help long term unemployed and vulnerable women succeed in job interviews, return to employment and transform their lives. Smart Works provides complete outfits of high-quality clothes for job interviews, one-to-one interview training, and professional & personal development.

Smart Works has locations in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Reading, Birmingham, and Newcastle.

Patron (January 2019 - Present)

Mayhew is an animal welfare charity that works in London and internationally. It primarily works with car & dogs. Mayhew works to tackle the root cause of animal abandonment and neglect and to help vulnerable people stay with their companion pets. They do this through pro-active community and educational initiatives, and preventative veterinary care, such as:
  • Working with homelessness charities to ensure people and their dogs can be kept together
  • Running a Pet Refuge programme to provide short-term shelter and care for the pets of people in crisis
  • Educating young people about animal welfare and the importance of responsible pet ownership. 
Internationally, Mayhew works with governments, local communities and charitable groups in Afghanistan, Georgia, Russia and India to help improve animal welfare.
