Meghan Markle Cooks For Herself and Prince Harry Every Single Day –Here’s Why

Meghan Markle has always lived a healthy and active lifestyle. However, she has also been open about being a foodie, and loving to try and prepare new meals. One of the duchess’ first initiatives after marrying into the British Royal Family was to partner with the Hubb Community Kitchen in west London. Markle took the time to write the forward for the kitchen’s Together: Our Community Cookbook.

In addition to the cookbook, the duchess also returns to Hubb often to help prepare food. Now, we’ve just learned that in addition to her new royal duties and preparing for the birth of her first child, Markle also cooks dinner for herself and Prince Harry every single day. Here’s why.
