The Duchess of Sussex visited the Luminary Bakery in north London to officially open their new venue and sat down with some of the bakers and cake decorators who have launched their careers thanks training provide by the social enterprise. The 38-year-old was quick to get stuck in, popping on an apron and helping to put the finishing touches on a three-tier iced cake decorated with strawberries. The mother-of-one opened up to the culinary enthusiasts about how she finds “comfort” in knowing she is not the only woman on the planet to feel insecurity and fearful about certain aspects of her life.
Meghan said: “I find that when you strip all the layers away, as people, and especially as women, we can find deep connection with each other, and a shared understanding.
“Our lives may be different, our backgrounds, our experiences, all varied, but I find that in these moments of connection it becomes abundantly clear that our hopes, our fears, our insecurities, the things that make us tick… well, those are very much the same. And there’s comfort in that.”
One woman at the bakery in Chalk Farm Road, Camden, told Prince Harry’s wife about her harrowing violent experience at the hand of her ex-boyfriend.

According to The Daily Telegraph the woman named Tanya relived how she had been stabbed repeatedly by the man before saying she feels “free” of judgement at the bakery.
Meghan responded by telling her and her fellow bakers: “We all have a story to tell, and I feel honoured that I am getting to hear yours.”
The duchess visited Luminarty’s flagship store in Stoke Newington earlier this year and choose to feature the group in her “Forces for Change’ September guest edition of British Vogue.
