As if she wasn’t already busy enough, Kate Middleton has added another job to her roster (even though she’s is technically on maternity leave).
The new gig seems like a perfect fit: the Duchess of Cambridge will become the Royal Patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum, which is dedicated to art and design. Kate—who studied art history in university and is an avid amateur photographer—is the first member of the royal family to step into the role.

Kate was at the V&A last June, when she helped launch the museum’s new entrance, courtyard and gallery.
