The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared a series of inspiring messages on their official Instagram account, @sussexroyal, which has over 9 million followers, who are often treated to positive and uplifting messages. The royal couple shared a photo of some tasty looking cupcakes on Thursday, with each of the cupcakes from Luminary Bakery having a message emblazoned on top of them.
The messages were all about encouraging personal balance. In order of appearance, the cupcakes say: “You are beautiful”, “You are strong”, “You are worthy”, “You are loved”, “You are enough”, “You are yourself”, “You matter”, “Be kind to your mind” and “Stay strong”.
Along with the image, Meghan made sure to praise the bakery, writing: “What they’ve created at Luminary Bakery is exceptional – it’s a space for baking, healing and rebuilding. When I visited the women earlier this year I was struck by how the baking, itself, is a means of therapy for these women – which in many ways makes complete sense – feeling they had no control over their lives based on their previous (and often harrowing) circumstances, they found comfort in the measured nature of baking.
Mixing equal parts of one ingredient and another could yield the perfect dessert, but the act of doing so provided personal balance. So while the baked goods are absolutely delicious, it’s the story of how the program at Luminary reshapes lives through baking that is the actual icing on the cake.”
Royal fans were overjoyed with the post and quickly turned to praise Meghan and Harry for spreading such an important message, leaving countless comments to the post. One said: “Your Royal Highness. This is so fantastic and I would like to say I hugely admire what you have done and are doing since becoming a member of the Royal Family.” Another added: “Meghan if you’re reading this I just wanted to say that you are the most inspirational and amazing person in this whole wide world.”
This isn’t the first time that the Duchess has talked about Luminary Bakery and the things it accomplishes, she even featured her bakery in her guest-edited edition of Vogue and was sent a beautiful birthday cake from the east London-based cake house on her birthday.
