Meghan Markle marks Grenfell anniversary with ‘thoughtful’ gesture from Montecito

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, marked the fifth year anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire with a very sweet gesture to the women of the Hubb Community kitchen.

In 2017, 72 people sadly died after the residential Grenfell Tower caught fire. 223 people escaped and more than 70 people were injured.

The Hubb Community Kitchen cook for many people in their local community, including the people affected by the Grenfell fire.

On the anniversary of the tragedy, the group revealed that Meghan , 40, had sent them voice note from her home in Montecito, Santa Barbara.

Sharing an old snap with the Duchess on their Instagram page, they wrote: "Today is a day spent looking back, remembering and reflecting.

"I just found this picture of us all, on the day our cookbook came out. The Duchess had wrapped a book for each one of us and wrote a lovely message to each lady on the first page."

They added: "Always very thoughtful, today we received a lovely voice message from the Duchess, being the 5 years anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy, asking how we are, about our children and families and giving us news of hers. Just being her beautiful kind self."

Meghan reportedly began meeting with the the women of the Community Hubb kitchen back in 2018. They then collaborated to create the charity cook book, Together: Our Community Cookbook.

On the third anniversary of Grenfell in 2020, Evening Standard reported that the Duchess of Sussex told the women in an audio message: "I think back to when I met all of you and how you had all come together in the wake of what you experienced in your community.

“And now what you have done is such an inspiration, you continue to give back, you continue to to put love in action.

"And that’s really what Hubb is all about… we know it means love but you are the example of love in action, and that is your purpose."

She added: “I’m so proud of you, so is Harry, and we are sending so much love to you from across the pond and thinking of you today, as I’m sure it’s a difficult day.

"But also one where you can look at how much you’ve accomplished in the past three years, and how you continue to give back and be an example for all of those around you."
