Meghan Markle broke her six-week holiday break from the spotlight with an Instagram post about The Hubb Community Kitchen. As she revealed, she worked with a group of women who coalesced after the Grenfall Tower Fire, and together, they created a charity cookbook which was published last year.
The post on Meghan and Prince Harry‘s Sussex Royal Instagram says: “It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of ‘Together’, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together.
The cookbook was a huge success, allowing the kitchen to be open for seven days, instead of two.
She continued: “Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance.”
The Hubb was one of the first causes she championed in her royal role, and she gave her first public speech at a palace luncheon held in their honor. She also visited the kitchen several times, bringing Harry and pop star Adele along with her too.
