Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is to be invited to join the Women's Institute.

The 37-year-old royal - who married Prince Harry at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May - is to be given the chance to join the organisation in the UK and thereby follow in the footsteps of other members of her family, including the Queen.

Vicky Booth - the secretary of East Sussex Women's Institute - told The Sun newspaper: "It'd be lovely if she followed the example of other royals.

"An invitation might well happen. It wouldn't matter if it was East or West Sussex. It would help raise the WI's profile."

The Queen and the Queen Mother have both served as the President of the Sandringham branch of the Women's Institute, while Camilla is a member in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. 

The organisation campaigns on behalf of women and seeks to provide them with educational opportunities.

According to a May 2015 report in the Telegraph, the Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge was also invited to join the WI.

Anmer WI president Dorothy Pulsford-Harris, 70, a retired barrister, wrote to the Duchess before Christmas to invite her to join when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte, reports the British publication.

At the time, Pulsford-Harris told the Telegraph: "I had a very nice letter back from her private secretary saying she was interested and may contact me later if she wanted to take it any further."
