Meghan Markle's 'Together' Charity Cookbook Reportedly Experiences Sales Spike after Stepping Back News
Things seem to be looking up for Meghan after she and Harry dropped their bombshell announcement last week as the duchess’ charity cookbook as reportedly spiked up in sales.
Despite Prince Harry and Meghan’s decision to step back as senior members of the royal family, the “Meghan Effect” still wields much power.
According to reports by Harper’s Bazaar, the duchess’ “Together: Our Community Cookbook” has spiked in sales since the shocking announcement.
The publication explained that although fans of the royal couple were shocked by their decision, the important work Meghan has achieved since joining the royal family hasn’t been forgotten.
Her notable deeds were brought to the minds of many after political commentator, Damon Evans, encouraged Twitter citizens to order the cookbook as a show of support for the duchess.
In a series of tweets, Damon explained that although he wasn’t a fan of the royal family, he had gone through several videos amid the harsh criticism hurled at Meghan.
Listening to @mrjamesob today, he asked the question: “What have Harry & Meghan done wrong?”— Damon Evans (@damocrat) January 9, 2020
Watched a load of videos of her and concluded: it’s not about what they’ve done wrong, it’s about what she represents: feminism, activism, diversity etc.
All the things ‘they’ hate.
His conclusion after seeing Meghan in the clips read:
“I didn’t know much about Markle before I watched a load of videos today. But now I understand why so many idiots hate her: she’s a decent woman.”
Damon then went on to urge supporters of the duchess to show their support by buying the cookbook.
Since his online campaign, an Amazon UK spokesperson revealed to Bazaar that there had been a “considerable increase” in the sale of the cookbook over the past week.
To further impress their good deeds in the hearts of the fans, Harry and Meghan visited the Hubb Community Kitchen a day after they dropped the shocking announcement.
PEOPLE reports that the Duke and Duchess shared photos from their visit on their Instagram page and explained in the caption that funds from the cookbook sales helped the women of the Grenfell tragedy to “share their spirit of community with so many more.”

Earlier this week, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to visit the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen and “Together, Our Community Cookbook.” These women came together in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy to cook meals for their families and neighbours who had been displaced from the fire. With funds from the successful cookbook, they have now been able to share their spirit of community with so many more. The Hubb continues to work with local organisations to build hope, bring comfort and provide not simply a warm meal, but with it, a sense of togetherness. The Duke and Duchess were so happy to reconnect with the women and hear about the projects they continue to develop to help those in their community and beyond. Image © SussexRoyal
Meghan first visited the survivors of the Grenfell Tower Tragedy back in November as one of her first major role as a royal, per PEOPLE. The mother-of-one interacted and hugged the survivors and even went as far as sporting an apron to help them cook.
While it might seem as though the royal’s former acting career that paved the way for her, the Daily Mail reveals that is not the case.
According to the publication, during the couple’s appearance on the red carpet of the “Lion King” premiere last July, Prince Harry was seen advertising his wife’s talent to Hollywood mogul, Bob Iger.
The royal was heard telling Iger,
“You do know she does voiceovers?”
The Disney Chief reportedly said he would love to give Meghan a try, and the rest is history.
