From a power meeting with former First Lady Michelle Obama to poignant discussions at King's College London, the Duchess of Sussex has been all about the private visits as of late. And just days before joining the Royal Family at Sandringham for Christmas, Meghan made one more surprise stop – to the Hubb Community Kitchen, and this time with Prince Harry in tow!
The Court Circular reported that the royal couple were updated on how the community has moved forward and improved this year. Singer Adele also joined the pair at the secret meeting. The GRAMMY winner has been very involved in efforts to support victims of the fire, having attended the tribute and vigil in June 2017 and continuing to voice her support on social media.
Anyone familiar with Meghan will know her love for food, so it would be no surprise if this visit reunited her with the incredible women who helped craft the charity cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook. The mom-to-be most recently visited the Hubb on her own in November to see how funds raised by the group's beautiful project have been put to good use.The cookbook, published in September, was borne after a group of women victims of the Grenfell Tower Fire gathered at the Al Manaar community centre and used the kitchen to make fresh meals for those affected by the tragedy. Since its release, the book has appeared in the Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller lists and is currently the #1 best seller in Middle Eastern Cooking on amazon.ca.
Prince Harry has been a huge support to his wife as she embarked on her first solo project, and it was plain to see when he joined her and her mom, Doria Ragland, at the launch on Sept. 20, hosted at Kensington Palace. At the beginning of the year, it was revealed that the duchess had been making regular visits to the kitchen. "Meghan's visits mean so much to us. She has a special place in our hearts," a leading Grenfell community member said of the royal's generous involvement.
