Meghan continued to make regular private visits and championed the kitchen's Together cookbook, which features personal recipes from the women involved.

Proceeds from the book went towards the redesign of the Hubb Community Kitchen and has enabled it to be open for seven days a week.

The Duchess checked in with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen during a Zoom call in April, to throw her support behind a new campaign the group launched to feed Londoners during the coronavirus lockdown.

Meghan told the women during the call: "You all had it in you and what was so great is after that first day and then however many visits later, and going 'yeah we’re just going to make a book', and not realising, knowing and having a lot of faith in what you guys could bring to the table, and what you could inspire but obviously not knowing what a huge success it was going to be.

"That is just a testament to you, and what I love is it's just inspired so many people."
