Meghan Markle Returns to the Screen for a Royal Video Short
Meghan Markle's next undertaking literally couldn't be sweeter, so lettuce celebrate the Duchess of Sussex for doing a grape job on her eggs-quisite new project, which is kind of a big dill (alright, alright, we'll stop).
In case you couldn't tell, Markle's next project involves food and cooking, but it also benefits a group of do-gooders in the London community. She's supporting a new charity cookbook called Together: Our Community Cookbook, and the proceeds are going to women who suffered after the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017.
The move is one of Markle's first solo ventures into public royal work, and it includes a short onscreen film (how appropriate).
Markle helped a women's community kitchen create the cookbook after visiting the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in London and realizing how little funding they had.
"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together," Markle said in a statement. "Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy – in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy – something we can all relate to… Through this charitable endeavor, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive."
Once she saw the need, she got in touch with a publisher and helped make it happen. The book — which is on sale now — features a foreword by the duchess and photos of her too.
What a sugary sweet start to the week.
