According to Kensington Palace:
The Duchess of Sussex today visited the National Theatre to find out more about their work with arts and community organisations across the UK using theatre as a force for change. Huge crowds waited outside to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous glowing Duchess in pink.
The Queen passed on this Royal Patronage to The Duchess, after serving as Patron for over 40 years.
The National Theatre aims to reach the widest possible audience and to be as inclusive, diverse and national as possible with a broad range of productions that play in London, on tour around the UK, on Broadway and across the globe.
During the visit, HRH watched a line run from Shakespeare’s Pericles and met apprentices. The Theatre’s apprenticeship scheme was launched in 2011, which combines studying for formal qualifications alongside practical training.
