Before Christmas Meghan is willing to give her new members of the family a taste of what it’s like to be American. One of Meghan’s friends told Hollywood Life that “[Meghan] is planning to host an American style Thanksgiving feast at her new Kensington Palace apartment and she’s going to be making it all from scratch!”
The friend added, “She’s an amazing cook and loves making big holiday dinners. Since Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated in England, there are no plans to have a dinner, so it’s the perfect chance for her to host something.”
To prove her love for cooking and helping today Megahn visited the London community kitchen she helped raise funds for, and showed off some serious culinary skills in the process.
The Duchess’ charitable work has already proven that it works, as the book they released two months ago has helped women behind the recipes to renovate their communal kitchen. Meghan is visiting the kitchen today to see “how the proceeds from ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ are already making a difference locally,” the Palace wrote. “The Duchess has made regular private visits to the kitchen since January, which was set up by women from the community affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. Through the power of cooking, the women have been able to connect, heal and look forward. Thanks to the funds raised from ‘Together’, the kitchen has been completely renovated, with the women’s input, capturing the joyful spirit of the Hubb Community Kitchen and providing a safe, professional space to unite the community through food.”
Last month it was announced that the Queen has invited Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, to joined them for the Christmas celebrations.
This week Grazia Daily and Majesty editor Ingrid Seward reported that on Christmas Meghan will have to face some weird royal family traditions. One of them is weighting after the Christmas meal. Yes, you read right! This is tradition that started back when King Edward VII was still ruling. Apparently he wanted everyone to be weighed after dinner so that he would make sure that everyone is full. Today’s royal family, reportedly, still follows the traditions just for fun and everyone gets weighed after the meal on old fashion scales. We are sure that after three meals, which the royals traditionally have on Christmas day, no one would be hungry, but it’s nice to follow traditions. Get ready Meghan!
