Prince William just took a page out of sister-in-law Meghan Markle’s (cook)book. The Duke of Cambridge recently penned the forward in a cookbook that holds a special place in his heart.
To mark the 40th anniversary of homelessness charity The Passage, Prince William wrote the introduction to “A Taste of Home,” a book commemorating four decades of charitable work, with all profits going directly towards supporting people who are street homeless. In the message, the 37-year-old royal spoke about the importance of having a place to call home and a hot meal during these trying and difficult times.
“I am the first one to admit that I am not an excellent chef,” he began. “The last time I was allowed into the kitchens at The Passage they very sensibly kept me in the role of sous-chef (aka carrot-chopper). On that occasion, I ‘made’ a spaghetti bolognaise (recipe on page 101). The dish smelt amazing—probably because I didn’t cook it. But what struck me most was how sharing a hot meal in the canteen at The Passage makes people who are experiencing homelessness feel right at home.”
And not only was he following in Markle’s footsteps but the footsteps of his mother Princess Diana as well, who supported The Passage before him. He first visited the organization with his mother in 1993 and has been a patron of the charity since 2019.
Looks like we need to get our hands on a copy.
