Robert Lacey is quoted in the special special commemorative edition, “Meghan & Harry Welcome Baby Archie! The Couple’s Love-filled First Year” on pages 34 and 35:

“In January 2019, the Palace announced Meghan’s royal patronages, the four organisations that will be the focus of her charitable work.
