THE Queen has given the Duchess of Cornwall another top role.
Camilla has been made royal patron of the National Theatre.
It’s the first of the Duchess of Sussex’s former patronages to be handed over.
Former actress Meghan was stripped of the role after she and Harry gave up royal duties in 2020.
It’s another sign of the Queen’s faith in her daughter-in-law.
Last month she endorsed Camilla as future Queen Consort.

Rufus Norris, director of the National Theatre, said: “The Duchess has shown great support to our industry.”
“The duchess shares our belief that theatre enriches our lives in so many ways and that everyone should have access to the arts and creativity no matter where they are in the world.”
He added: “I would also like to express my thanks to the Queen for Her Majesty’s long and unwavering support and service to the National Theatre.”
The Queen has been associated with the National Theatre since its earliest days at the Old Vic in the 1960s.
She last visited with the Duke of Edinburgh in 2013 as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations.
Camilla is an avid theatre-goer, whose existing patronages include the Theatre Royal Bath, Unicorn Theatre for Children and Georgian Theatre Royal.
