Tonight, the Duchess of Sussex is celebrating her first Thanksgiving as a member of the Royal family.
She is expected to mark the traditional US holiday in private with husband Harry. As far as we’re aware, the couple has a clear schedule this Thursday. Therefore, they are free to enjoy the occasion together for the first time as a married couple. After all, there’s no royal rule explicitly forbidding it.
We still don’t have information on whether the Duchess has invited mom Doria, with whom she has celebrated the holiday till last year.
In 2016, Meghan posted on her deleted Instagram account a photo of her and a large cooked turkey. “Oh, that time I roasted a pretty perfect Thanksgiving turkey!” she wrote in a comment.
“The question is, can I do it again? The pressure is on!”
Duchess Meghan has talked earlier about how her parents, “who came from little”, taught her to care about others, and led by example during her childhood, buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving.
And just yesterday, she made a surprise visit to the HubbCommunty Kitchen. She put on an apron and a pair of gloves and helped prepare some of the food with the women.
Meghan helped prepare a large dish of rainbow roasted vegetables as she introduced chef Clare Smyth, a friend of hers, to the volunteers in the kitchen. It was a sweet coincidence (or not) for the Duchess, as it came a day before Meghan’s first Thanksgiving as a part of the Royal family.
Chef Clare Smyth talked about Meghan passion about the kitchen.”She’s really into food, she’s a real foodie.”
Aside from Meghan’s charity work to celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving, it is also known that she loves a well-cooked bird. The roast chicken was on the menu the night that Prince Harry proposed to her.
