Meghan Markle Dedicates Instagram Post to London's The Hubb Community Kitchen Whose Cookbook She Supported

On Wednesday, the SussexRoyal Instagram page, which is shared by Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, dedicated a post to the Hubb Community Kitchen in London.

The group was started by women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire. During the tragedy, more than 70 people died.

Meghan ended up working with the organization privately for several months. She then put the spotlight on them when she helped release a cookbook that featured their recipes.

MEGHAN WROTE THE FOREWORD FOR THE RECIPE BOOK

Proceeds from the recipe book were meant to benefit the project. The Duchess also wrote the foreword for a cookbook and was present on the launch date.

The social media post included several images of the organization and the women who work in it.

Ladies who launch! This afternoon in the Woodstock district of Cape Town, The Duchess of Sussex joined inspiring female entrepreneurs who shared their passion for ideas, technology and making a positive social impact. Each of the women shared amazing stories of how they started in business, the journey they’ve been on - successes and struggles - but also their ambitions for the future. Female empowerment and championing women’s rights is a key focus for The Duchess. By taking small actions we can make a big difference. Thank you to the inspiring women The Duchess met today, who are setting this example every day through their dedication and determination. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images / Sussex Royal

DUCHESS CONNECTED WITH COMMUNITY WOMEN

A lengthy caption was included in the post reading:

“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 BOOK BECAME A HIT

The caption also revealed that the recipe book ended up on “The New York Times” Bestseller List and “The Sunday Times” Booklist. The post shared that the organization was continuing with its work in the UK and “around the world.”

MEGHAN THANKS THE WOMEN

The tribute ended by saying:

“Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings!”

THE ROYAL COUPLE’S FAMOUS INSTAGRAM PAGE
