The organization will now be called ‘The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’. It’s quite a mouthful to say and the same can be said of the organization’s impact, which has been vast. Meghan is already excited to start her work. The former actress is a passionate activist and has worked for many NGOs in the past.

The new Duchess had the honor of attending her first Royal Foundation event back in February, when she was introduced to everyone. It was also one of her first royal appearances with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. And now she is going to officially be part of the charity! The new name should be available in five days.

Meghan talked about her excitement at the new project, saying, “To see the model of the foundation is really interesting because, while I’ve worked with larger NGOs, I’ve also worked with really small grassroots organizations where you can see a higher level of impact in my opinion, because there’s a lot less red tape.”

She continued to talk about how numerous smaller organizations could now come together under one umbrella and be allowed to create maximum impact. Meghan said she is looking forward to working on these initiative and wants to create an impact on a global level.

And the fact that she hasn’t lived in the UK is not going to stop her. The Duchess is eager to ‘hit the ground running’ and start giving back to her new home country as soon as possible. She explained that she has been working quite a bit behind the scenes and has been meeting a lot of different people who have helped her get good leads. Meghan is also learning as much as she can about the social climate in the UK so she can maximize both her involvement and impact in the future.

The Duchess made her first appearance after the honeymoon on Saturday. She and other members of the royal family stepped out for the Trooping the Color ceremony where they paid tribute to Her Majesty the Queen of England. While Prince Harry looked at ease with his new bride, she appeared to be a little nervous, according to an analysis by a lip-reading expert.

Mirror Online reported that the expert saw signs of nervousness in Meghan’s behavior. This is why Harry asked her if she was feeling okay in private. She replied she was, but looked pretty anxious and mouthed the words in a way that showed it. Later on, when she stepped out onto a balcony for her debut, she apparently said that she felt nervous.

Meghan has a lot of royal engagements ahead of her in the upcoming months!
