The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has been announced the patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, becoming the first royal ever to have held this title.

The official account of the palace further stated that Victoria and Albert Museum is the world's leading museum of art, design, education, and performance.

Initially, it was incepted to make works of art available to everyone and to inspire the designers and manufacturers of Britain.


Meanwhile, the online source informed that Middleton has always been one of the biggest admirers of arts and has 'deep passion' for it. She even has a degree in the History of Art from St. Andrews University.

By accepting patronage to the museum, she has solidified her intention to stand with the art industry and to help many people holding a deep passion for art, like her, come into the limelight.
