Duchess Kate may be on maternity leave, but she's still taking on new royal duties. Today it was announced that Kate will become the first royal patron of the V&A in London.

Kensington Palace shared the news on its Twitter account this morning in a post which read, "The Duchess of Cambridge is to become the first Royal Patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Furthering Her Royal Highness's interest in the visual arts, photography and design, she formally takes up the @V_and_A Patronage from today." 



The account also noted that the museum "was established to make works of art available to all and to inspire British designers and manufacturers."

Duchess Kate, who got her degree in art history from St. Andrews, previously visited the V&A back in June of 2017 to open a new entrance of the museum. While there, Kate said she was "quite stunned" by the all-porcelain courtyard, the first of its kind in the world.
