Meghan Markle is winning hearts by supporting a community kitchen
LONDON: In her most recent endeavour, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is supporting a community kitchen by promoting their cookbook, which also aims to bring several communities together.This is her first solo project since becoming a member of the royal family.
As her first solo social project after becoming the Princess of England, Markle met with a group of women hailing from different communities at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in London.
These women met twice a week to come up with a cookbook that represents the communities of all the participating women in order to bring communities together.
The initiative earned a #CookTogether hashtag as people applauded the cause and also Markle’s participation in it.
“I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together,” said Markle in a statement ,who then continued to make regular private visits to the kitchen.
