Meghan's sibling-in-laws weren't the only ones to share a photo of her on Instagram as part of her special day – a London bakery, Luminary Bakery, also uploaded a little unseen throwback shot of her to celebrate. This new photo shows Meghan being handed an apron by a bakery school graduate, before she got stuck in to some learning herself.
Captioning the photo, Luminary Bakeries (an award–winning social enterprise with a focus on empowering women) wrote: "Today, we're partnering with @camfed to celebrate #womenempoweringwomen and say a very #HappyBirthdayMeghan, who has championed the work of both our organisations! To celebrate, one of our Luminary grads, Monica who is based in London, will be joining Tisiyenji, in Zambia from @camfed to bake cakes "together" from across the globe to honour The Duchess of Sussex’s birthday & celebrate ALL women through their beautiful bakes. Join along in our stories to see these amazing women & their cakes!
"This picture is of Monica meeting Meghan when she came to help us officially open our second bakery in Camden last year. Monica enthusiastically lent her the apron she was wearing, which is true to Monica's generous spirit!"
It's lovely to see the snap of The Duchess and it makes total sense that she'd have paid a visit to the bakery, given that she's always been so vocal about the importance of achieving equality for all. Even though her and Harry live over in LA (and are no longer working royals), they've still be showing due care and attention to organisations striving for change, such as the time they recently surprised staff at Homeboy Industries – and Meghan spoke in near-perfect Spanish.
A new upcoming book about Meghan and Prince Harry's decision to step away from their senior royal roles, Finding Freedom, is set to be released later this month, with extracts already being published (one of which finally reveals the long-hidden name of the couple's dog).
We hope Meghan had a fantastic birthday!
