The Royal Foundation Meghan as Patron
Since : May 2018
Following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017, Meghan has become involved in the work of the Foundation, and became its fourth patron following her marriage, on 19 May 2018. The Royal Foundation programmes currently revolve around four main themes of work; mental health, wildlife and conservation, young people and the armed forces community.
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013, Prince Harry saw first-hand how the power of sport can help physically, psychologically and socially those suffering from injuries and illness. He was inspired by his visit and the Invictus Games was born. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.

The Duchess of Sussex hosted an outdoor reception at Kensington Palace for her book launch ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’. She was supported by her husband the Duke of Sussex and her mother, Doria Ragland. It was her first solo project as a royal member and they were looking very proud of her. Guests had the chance to eat some recipes from the book cooked for the event by women of the Hubb Community Kitchen. Discover below her full speech she gave to thank everyone involved in the creation of the book.
The Duchess of Sussex is supporting her first solo charity project as a Patron of The Royal Foundation: a new charity cookbook, ‘Together’, celebrating the power of cooking to bring communities together. Her Royal Highness has written the foreword for ‘Together’, which features the women’s own personal recipes from across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy – in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy – something we can all relate to.
Together is a charity cookbook, celebrating the power of cooking to strengthen communities. Supported by The Royal Foundation and published by Penguin Random House companies, ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ showcases over 50 recipes from these women whose community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
In summer 2017, a group of women gathered in a communal kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London, where they could prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbours. As they cooked together and shared recipes, as a community they began to connect, heal and look forward. Word spread and more women joined in – this was the start of the Hubb Community Kitchen. Soon there were women from different cultures cooking, swapping recipes, talking and laughing. As they cooked, they began to connect, heal and look forward, and they have continued to cook together twice a week. They named their group the Hubb Community Kitchen as Hubb means ‘love’ in Arabic. The women of the Hubb Community Kitchen describe it as a place of good food, love, support and friendship.
Profits from the sales of Together will support the Hubb Community Kitchen, helping to keep it open for up to seven days a week and to widen its reach to others in the community, so it can continue changing lives and bringing people together through cooking.
