Earlier this week The Duchess of Sussex visited the women of @LuminaryBakery as they celebrated the opening of their new location. It was a special moment to acknowledge the spirit of Luminary and their remarkable business model that opens its arms to women from vulnerable circumstances (be it abuse, poverty, trafficking, marginalisation) and equips them with the job skills and confidence to succeed. Having sat down with @luminarybakery at their flagship location earlier this year and from that inspiring visit choosing to feature them as #ForcesForChange in the September issue of @britishvogue, Her Royal Highness was proud to be invited to attend the launch of their second bakery. This addition will enable the organisation to provide services, support and mentoring for four times the number of women. Luminary Bakery – a sustainable grassroots organisation in the heart of London – is a beautiful example of community and uplifting those during hardship for the greater good. If you find yourself in the area, please visit and support the women of @LuminaryBakery to enjoy their delicious baked goods and to see the impactful work they’re doing. Video © SussexRoyal

Meghan went for a laid-back yet chic ensemble, dressing in dark wash jeans and a striped button-up shirt. (The Daily Mail reports the top is available from With Nothing Underneath for £80, or about $103.) Meghan finished off the look with comfortable white sneakers and even donned an apron to help with some cake decorating herself.

During an intimate discussion with women at the bakery, Meghan opened up about her “hopes, fears and insecurities” and discussed the importance of patience and support among people.

“I was talking about this with someone the other day,” she said during the discussion, according to The Telegraph. “We get into this habit of wanting things done immediately nowadays. There’s a culture of instant gratification, of the instant fix. But we aren’t mechanical objects that need to be fixed. You’re a wounded creature that needs to be healed, and that takes time. And that’s what I love about this place. It gives you the support to heal.”

Luminary’s business model, explained in the caption of the video on Instagram, “opens its arms to women from vulnerable circumstances (be it abuse, poverty, trafficking, marginalization) and equips them with the job skills and confidence to succeed,” according to the caption of the Instagram video posted on the Sussex Royal account.

This isn’t Meghan’s first time working with the women of Luminary Bakery. The Duchess sat down with them at their flagship location earlier this year and was so inspired by the visit that she chose to feature the group as forces for change in the September issue of British Vogue, which she guest edited.
