The Duchess of Sussex's first solo engagement went off without a hitch although her husband, the Duke of Sussex, may have tried to sneak a Samosa without anyone looking.
Earlier today on the grounds of Kensington Palace, the Duchess hosted a luncheon to celebrate the publication of Together: Our Community Cookbook, which features the recipes from the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen. The women are among the survivors of the Grenfell Fire in June 2017.
Hubb means love in Arabic -- and a lot of love was in the dishes that were made and served at the luncheon.
The Duchess of Sussex was accompanied by her husband and her mom, Doria Ragland, who flew from Los Angeles to see her daughter's project come to fruition.
In the last few hours I have read a plethora of criticism directed toward Meghan and her mother from message boards hags and nags and racist bitches on Twitter.
Oh dear, Doria was in a tax-payer funded car with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 'Cuse me, but the seat she sat in would have been empty if she were not in the car. No extra gas (petrol) was used. The car came from Nottingham Cottage. I doubt people would have gotten their knickers in a twist if Doria had been a foreign royal or the Duchess of Ragland.
I also think that Doria's presence had the ERII seal of approval.
So many are also offended or upset because the majority of the guests were (GASP!) Muslims and black people ... Oh dear ... so many must have suffered the vapors and headed for their fainting couches to recover.
The majority of the residents of the Grenfell Towers, including those who were killed in the fire, are not white. So what? Britain is a multi-cultural society, and that is something that is not going to change. Celebrate it.
The Queen is the sovereign of 16 countries, where not all the residents are white or Christian. If the Queen can be queen of countries where the majority of residents are black and accept it ... so can you.
The Duchess of Sussex hit a home run with this project, which has been in the works since before the wedding. She made numerous private visits to the kitchen to meet with the women, learn about their struggles - and how she could help.
The cookbook is already a bestseller.
Well done, darling Duchess, Well done.
