Incase you haven't noticed, Meghan Markle is a natural at being royal. Only three days after her and Prince Harry's wedding (opens in new tab), she attended her first garden party at Buckingham Palace (wearing pantyhose (opens in new tab)!) and had lots of laughs with her new mother-in-law (opens in new tab), the Duchess of Cornwall. Now, she's ready to get to work.

Lorraine Heggessey, chief executive officer of the Royal Foundation (opens in new tab), which oversees the charitable efforts of Prince William, Kate Middleton, Harry, and Meghan told People (opens in new tab), "Meghan will likely focus on issues concerning young women and teenage girls. She is familiarizing herself with the landscape in this country. She’s meeting groups and wants to do that privately so she can get to know people.”

Perhaps she'll work closely with buzzed-about royal wedding guest (opens in new tab) slash British human rights lawyer slash close friend, Amal Clooney? “Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests,” says a People source (opens in new tab). “Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life. It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
