They say, after every storm there is a rainbow. And we are so happy to declare that the saying is finally true for Meghan Markle!
Since becoming part of the royal family, Meghan has been scrutinized for several reasons; whether it’s the fact that she’s not British, her not-so-great history with her father, her and Harry’s step back from royal duties, or even her personal style statement. But after an avalanche of controversy and media bashing, it finally appears that she’s turning a new leaf with the media and fans.
Recently, the Duchess of Sussex was appreciated for adding her own unique touch to the celebrations of Women’s History Month.
Meghan’s sweet gesture
To show gratitude to a group of women delivering meals during the Chicago pandemic, Meghan baked a lemon olive oil cake with 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 addressing the women joining the dinner, in which the couple expressed hope that the women enjoyed the cake and added that it was a small token of gratitude on their part .
World Central Kitchen (WCK)’s response to Meghan’s gesture
On March 26, 2021, WCK shared a photo of a women’s group on Twitter with a small message. The photo shows four women posing with Meghan’s cake. The organization said it was working with the Archewell Foundation to honor Women’s History Month and said Meghan baked a cake with lemons from her garden to support his initiative.
After the tweet was another photo of five women who said that WCK has distributed about 50,000 meals since the spread of COVID-19. It also mentioned that Dorri of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago (a non-profit organization), and Sarah, co-owner of Fat Shallot restaurant, joined the meal-delivering women for lunch. FYI, WCK is a non-profit organization that provides meals to areas plagued by natural disasters.
Meghan’s love of cooking
Interestingly, this is not the first time Meghan has been cooking for an occasion. In 2018, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex toured England, Meghan bought homemade banana bread at a family farm in Dubbo. And that’s not it! On several occasions she also cooked for her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
She reportedly bonded with the two little royals over homemade treats. The Duchess of Sussex even cooked food for her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. And given her love of cooking, it’s no big surprise that she wrote a cookbook in 2018 called Together: Our community cookbookcontaining recipes from women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
