The Duchess of Sussex has showed her support for members of the Hubb Community Kitchen on the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The kitchen was started by survivors of the fire in 2017, and is based in Al-Manaar, the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London. The tragedy killed 72 people and shattered the local community, one of the reasons why the group of women wanted to support their neighbours.

They provide fresh food to those in need and have created a collaborative cookbook with Meghan that raised money for charity.

On the third year since the fire, Meghan recorded a special audio message for the Hubb volunteer members.

“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,” said the former royal.

“And now what you have done is such an inspiration, you continue to give back, you continue to put love in action. And that’s really want Hubb is all about.”

“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.”
