For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, things are business as usual.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their return to Instagram on Friday, two days after dropping *that* announcement during Markle’s quick visit to London.
The couple revealed Wednesday that they are stepping back as senior members of the royal family. The couple broke the big news on their joint Instagram account and shared a lengthy caption explaining their decision.
The new post from Friday features details (and a slideshow) of Markle and Harry’s recent visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen, a group started by women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London where more than 70 people died.
“Earlier this week, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to visit the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen and Together, Our Community Cookbook,” they captioned the post. “These women came together in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy to cook meals for their families and neighbors who had been displaced from the fire. With funds from the successful cookbook, they have now been able to share their spirit of community with so many more. The Hubb continues to work with local organizations to build hope, bring comfort and provide not simply a warm meal, but with it, a sense of togetherness.”
By the looks of the photos and Markle’s outfit in the post, it seems like the visit took place on Tuesday (one day before their official announcement). Interesting.
This isn’t the first time the royal couple has spotlighted the organization. Markle has privately worked with them for the past few years—preparing meals and even writing the foreword for a cookbook featuring their recipes to benefit the project.
The organization also holds a special place in the duchess’s heart. It was the first cause she championed solo in her royal role. Not to mention she hosted a palace luncheon for the program, where she gave her first-ever public speech as the Duchess of Sussex.
So, we guess all is well?
