Did you know that before becoming a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle ran a foodie blog? The website has since been deactivated, but Meghan, now the Duchess or Sussex, has found a new way to share her love of food, and she's marrying it with her royal duties.
For her first solo project as a royal, the Duchess is championing a charity cookbook that is filled with recipes by women affected by London's 2017 Grenfell Tower fire. The book, titled Together: Our Community Cookbook, is available for pre-oder now, and features a three-page foreword written by the Duchess.
Funds from sales of the book will support Hubb Community Kitchen, which was established as a space for women to cook for their families and friends after being displaced by the fire.
In an Instagram post that shows the Duchess cooking with local women during a private visit to the kitchen, Kensington Palace wrote: "The Hubb Community Kitchen is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together. Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy – in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy – something we can all relate to."
