one says After every storm comes a rainbow. And we’re so happy to say that the adage is finally true for Meghan Markle!
Since becoming part of the royal family, Meghan has come under scrutiny for a number of reasons; whether it’s the fact that she’s not British, her not-so-great history with her father, her and Harry’s retirement from royal duties, or even her personal style statement. But after a flurry of controversy and media bashing, it finally seems like she’s turning a new leaf with media and fans alike.
Recently, the Duchess of Sussex gained appreciation for bringing her own unique touch to the Women’s History Month celebrations.
Meghan’s sweet gesture
To show gratitude for a group of women who delivered meals in Chicago during the pandemic, Meghan baked a lemon and olive oil cake using lemons from her garden in Montecito, California. The cake was part of a luncheon hosted by Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation in partnership with World Central Kitchen to celebrate Women’s History Month.
Along with the cake, Meghan and Harry also sent a letter to the women who attended the meal, in which the couple expressed hope the women would like the cake, adding that it was a small token of thanks from be her side.
World Central Kitchen’s (WCK) reaction to Meghan’s gesture
On March 26, 2021, WCK shared a picture of a women’s group on Twitter with a small message. The photo featured four women posing with Meghan’s cake. The organization explained that it is working with the Archewell Foundation to honor Women’s History Month and said Meghan baked a cake using lemons from her garden to support her initiative.
The tweet was followed by another image of five women saying that WCK has distributed approximately 50,000 meals since the spread of COVID-19. It was also mentioned that Dorri of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago (a non-profit organization) and Sarah, co-owner of the Fat Shallot restaurant, had joined the women who delivered the food for lunch. FYI, WCK is a non-profit organization that provides meals in areas affected by natural disasters.
Meghan’s love for cooking
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Meghan has cooked for an event. When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex toured England in 2018, Meghan bought homemade banana bread from a family farm in Dubbo. And it’s not! She has also cooked for her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte on various occasions.
She reportedly became friends with the two little royals over homemade treats. The Duchess of Sussex has even cooked dinner for her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. And given her love of cooking, it’s no big surprise that in 2018 she wrote a cookbook called Together: Our community cookbookcontaining recipes from women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
