Duchess Camilla, wife of Prince Charles, is set to become the royal patron of the National Theater in London. British media, including "The Sunday Times", report unanimously on this plan. Camilla would thus become Duchess Meghan's successor.
Queen Elizabeth II is expected to entrust Camilla with the prestigious role in the coming months. The queen, who held this position herself for 45 years, made Duchess Meghan the royal patron of the National Theater in early 2019. However, Prince Harry's wife was forced to relinquish patronage in 2021 after the couple stepped down from royal duties.
Camilla seems excited about the patronage
Duchess Camilla is said to have been "quite disappointed" that she was not allowed to take on the task in 2019. According to the report, this was revealed by an anonymous source close to the 74-year-old. So she'll probably be "all the more delighted" the second time around.
Harry and Meghan had to relinquish numerous honorary posts and patronages after their resignation. The palace had confirmed in February 2021 that the two will not return as working senior royals and that other family members will fill the different roles.
