Meghan Markle Makes Surprise Visit to London Bakery that Helps Disadvantaged Women

The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise visit to a bakery this week to shine some light on an organization she’s super passionate about. 

Meghan Markle celebrated the new location opening of Luminary Bakery, an organization in Stoke Newington which aims to empower some of the U.K.'s most socially and economically disadvantaged women.

During her visit, the 38-year-old spoke with women as they baked sweet treats and attended workshops. She even helped decorate a three-tiered cake with strawberries before making the honorary first cut. 

Lucky for us, the official @Sussexroyal Instagram account shared a video from her under-the-radar engagement and revealed details of her visit.

This isn’t the first time the duchess has brought attention to the bakery. She previously featured Luminary in the September issue of British Vogue and spotlighted the organization on Instagram over the summer. 

“What they’ve created at Luminary Bakery is exceptional—it’s a space for baking, healing and rebuilding,’’ part of the caption read. “When I visited earlier this year I was struck by how the baking, itself, is a means of therapy for these women—which in many ways makes complete sense—feeling they had no control over their lives based on their previous (and often harrowing) circumstances, they found comfort in the measured nature of baking.”

And did we mention the bakery made the cake (carrot cake with orange peels and pumpkin seeds) for Markle’s 38th birthday in August? Pretty awesome. 

We suddenly have a craving for carrot cake…
