As of late, it seems as though the British Royal Family is in the news for one thing or another. Marriage, babies, title changes, and shocking occurrences at official outings flood every news outlet. Thankfully, the upstanding family stays in the positive limelight for the most part and somehow finds a way to make us fall deeper in admiration for them as a whole.
There is a first for everything, and it seems as though the Duchess of Cambridge has stepped forward to do something no other royal has done thus far, and we can’t praise her enough for it. It was recently announced on the Kensington Palace Twitter account that Kate Middleton has officially been appointed as patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

They stated: “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&A Patronage from today.”
The account went on to state that the Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s leading museum of art, design, education, and performance. It was originally established to make works of art available to all and to inspire British designers and manufacturers.
The Duchess has always had a deep passion for the arts and even holds a degree in the History of Art from St. Andrews University. Her patronage to this museum further solidifies her desire to stand with this industry and help bring light to a passion that many like her share. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this magnificent establishment.
